1957 Chevy in a wrecking yard
Can you believe, a complete 57 chevy belair 4dr hdtp just arriving into a
wrecking yard now, in Oct, 2009. They have to part it out because it came
from a police auction and sold to be dismantled only, it cannot be
retitled, and I would be afraid to own it because the person it was siezed
from may be dangerous, its not worth the risk, it suks, but I don't blame
the police for selling it to be dismantled only, they are protecting
themselves and you. I don't know if they are ready to sell parts off it
yet, but they will soon! See some of the other cars. A 66 chevelle 2dr hdt,
and 63-64 impalas plus Montecarlos SS's

Circle Line 5- Cincinnati,Ohio Ghost ship. Paddlefest Cincinnati
Kayaking to see the Ghost Ship that is close to Cincinnati Ohio. There was
an article about the ship in a paddlefest magazine.
In 1902, the Pusey and Jones Corporation built the steel-hulled vessel
for Mr. J. Rogers Maxwell as the luxury yacht "CELT". Mr. Manton B.
Metcalf later purchased the vessel and renamed her as the "SACHEM". The US
Navy acquired the "SACHEM" from Mr. Metcalf in July 1917 for service during
World War I and renamed her as the "USS SACHEM" ("SP-192").
Captain Jake Martin's steam powered party boat "SACHEM" from Pier 9,
Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1934. The Pusey and Jones Corporation
built her in 1902 for Mr. J. Rogers Maxwell as the steel-hulled luxury
yacht "CELT". Mr. Manton B. Metcalf later purchased her and renamed her as
the "SACHEM". The US Navy acquired the "SACHEM" from Mr. Metcalf in July
1917 for service during World War I and renamed her as the "USS SACHEM"
(SP-192). During her wartime duties, the Navy assigned her to Thomas A.
Edison, who conducted experimental ocean communications work during secret
cruises to the Caribbean. She later operated as a harbor patrol craft in
the Third Naval District until the US Navy returned her to Mr. Metcalf in
February 1919. Mr. Metcalf later sold her to Philadelphia banker Roland L.
In 1932, Mr. Taylor sold her to Captain Jacob 'Jake' Martin and she would
become one of many yachts purchased during the Great Depression and
converted to a party fishing boat. She made regular trips to the fishing
grounds off Atlantic City, NJ. Their advertisements ask you to "See the NY
Daily News and NY American newspapers for daily sailings or telephone
Sheepshead 3-3985". In 1936, Captain Martin replaced her coal-fired boiler
with a 750 HP Fairbanks-Morse diesel engine. While the new diesel was more
convenient to operate, her speed dropped to 12 knots (she could make 15
knots when she was steam powered.)
The "SACHEM" sailed as a party boat until the start of World War II when
the federal government appropriated her (a second time) for the then tidy
sum of $65,000. The US Navy again converted her to an armed yacht and used
her to patrol the waters off the Florida Keys under the name "PHENAKITE".
At the end of the war, the US Navy returned the "SACHEM" to Captain Martin,
who promptly sold her to the Circle Line in New York City. She was
modified to carry 492 passengers on two decks and renamed the "SIGHTSEER"
(she later became the "CIRCLELINE SIGHTSEER" and "CIRCLE LINE V"); and ran
sightseeing trips around Manhattan. She was the flagship of the Circle
Line fleet and their fastest vessel. At the end of her life, she was
stripped of all of her fine mahogany millwork and brass fittings; and was
purportedly dismantled in 1984.
During her wartime duties, the Navy assigned her to Thomas A. Edison, who
conducted experimental communications work while on secret cruises to the
Caribbean. She later operated as a harbor patrol craft in the Third Naval
District until the US Navy returned her to Mr. Metcalf in February 1919.
Mr. Metcalf later sold the vessel to Philadelphia banker Roland L. Taylor,
and in 1932, Mr. Taylor sold her to Captain Jacob 'Jake' Martin. She
became one of many yachts purchased at low-cost during the Great Depression
and converted to a party fishing boat.
It is truly amazing that someone had the compulsion to sail the "SACHEM"
from New York and put it in their back yard in Kentucky. And utterly
astounding that they got this 186-foot long vessel so far up the little
creek. The story goes like this... After the Circle Line stopped using the
vessel for tours, they stripped her of all useful equipment and timber, and
removed the pilothouse for use as a ticket sales kiosk. They donated what
was left to the Sea Scouts and she wound up sitting idly at a pier at
Weehawken, New Jersey. In 1984, it was thought she was dismantled, but it
turned out that this was not the end of the story.
The events that took place after that are still unclear, but the vessel was
removed from Weehawken and temporary repairs were made. Outfitted with an
outboard propulsion unit, the "SACHEM" headed up the Hudson River,
traversed the Great Lakes, went through the Chicago Sanitary and Ship
Canal, down the Mississippi River and finally up the Ohio River to this
Kentucky creek in the late 1980s. The passage took forty days and she has
remained there for more than twenty years!
The "Queen of the Fleet" in more ways than one, no matter where she went...
As a yacht, as a Navy patrol vessel, as a party fishing boat or as a
sight-seeing excursion vessel. She was in service for nearly seventy years
and during her tenure, she served an estimated 2.9 million passengers, not
to mention serving her country during both World Wars.
