I think I remember when E 331 in Cross Bay had a boat similar to that one assigned to the company.  Do not remember E 323 ever having a boat assigned.

Zooming in on my phone the guy on the back tail board has a 32 on his lid

the guy in the boat has a 23 on his lid

Now a days the Satellite have a back up company

Back then (WAY before my time) did Boat Transport Companies have back ups?

I think that photo was in a WNYF and it's E329, although I could be wrong.

Pretty sure it is 329....the boat at 331 was not a towable boat.... 2 boat names i remember were "The Hackett"....& "The Blaze".....    also maybe a third "The Glenn" ?

The Glenn was marine 4 stationed at Fort Totten. When it was disbanded i believe they sold the boat to Waxhington DC right aftef John Glenn was elected to the senate
