In the dock space at Naples’ Tin City now anchored by the Double Sunshine tour boat, its 1960s-70s predecessor was self-named Capt. Elwood Starn. (The Dalis was there in between.) Starn and the boat even put out their own postcards. This undated card is courtesy of a Daily News reader who wishes to remain anonymous. The postcard promotional material said: “In Naples, Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico; deep-sea fishing aboard the 65-foot boat ‘Capt. Elwood Starn.’ Fish finder, twin G.M. diesels, snack bar, rod and reel rental; free parking at boat. Daily 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Gordon River Bridge on U.S. 41 East.” Yes, that is the landmark Kelly’s Fish House in the background, to the east. Readers with local memorabilia to share are encouraged to call the Perspective editor at 263-4773.
