Joan LaRie III Memorial


 

The Friends and Families Thank You All!

Here is the official Marine Accident Report January 20, 1984       

On Sunday, October 24, 1982, the charter fishing boat Joan LaRie III was returning from a sport fishing trip when it was struck by a big wave about 8.5 nautical miles east of manasquan inlet, New Jersey,  about 11:16am. The boat was swamped, and about 11:46 it sank. Of the 22 persons onboard, both crew members and 4 passengers were drowned; 2 passengers are missing and presumed dead.

The Joan LaRie III was built in 1968 and it was a 47' Charter boat. The Joan LaRie III sailed from Ken's Landing. The vessel was docked between where the Norma-K III and Norma-K II are today. Charley Housley was the Captain and Wally was the deckhand. They were well known and are sadly missed by all who knew them.

The tug boat was sunk in October and is now  part of the Axel Carlson Reef. She is in about 75' of water. The Joan LaRie Memorial Tug is located at position 40'03N 73'59W. I would like to thank all the sponsors for their donations and helping make this a reality!
