The UB88 Patrick T. Kennedy is being fitted as a tour boat by Owner / Captain Timothy Kennedy, seen here with his nephew Timothy.
The UB88 is a 50 foot Naval Utility Boat built in 1988 for the Aircraft Carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower .
This is Captain T. Kennedy’s second Restoration of a Naval Utility Boat, the first one is the UB85 Joseph S. Kennedy operating in Boston Harbor.
“The Joseph S. Kennedy is a 50 ft. Navy launch built in 1985 that… we have restored. In it’s early years, the Kennedy was attached to the USS Roosevelt, a US Navy aircraft carrier. Our vessel is named after Joseph S. Kennedy, the grandfather of our boat’s captain. Lovingly known as “Papa Joe”, he was a gunner’s mate who served in both World War I and II. Come join our family’s passion for the Boston Harbor and all of the history and sites it has to offer. “
We walked through the door very late last night, at 2:30am, after several delays leaving LAX. I am hoping to have time to look through and post some photos tomorrow after catching up with work.
During the visit with Liv and Matt, my husband Tom was contacted by the Théâtre du Petit Hébertot regarding the use of one of my photos of Rocky Neck in the fog. The theatre company is performing the Israel Horovitz play Park Your Car in Harvard Yard and included the mockup poster in their request. I love the poster and hope they use it!
