    As a young teenager I use to sail a Star out of Port Washnigton Yacht Club and remember both the Sikosky and Boeing Clippers taking off and landing just outside Port Washington harbor in the sound. They were always preceded by a flashy Pan Am speedboat with redlights and a siren. Does anyone have a picture of one of those speedboats?
