    Captain Frank Mundus' "CRICKET II" from Montauk, NY circa 1966. The "CRICKET II" was built in 1948 by Chesapeake bayman Tiffany Cockrell at Burgess Store, VA. Captain Mundus originally sailed the "CRICKET II" from Brielle, NJ before relocating to Montauk, NY in July of 1951. Although this photo depicts a large tuna on the vessel's gin pole, Captain Mundus was one of the most famous shark fishermen of his time. The character 'Quint' in the 1975 Steven Spielberg movie 'Jaws' was based on the real life of Captain Mundus. He was indeed the godfather of 'Jaws'. Photo courtesy of Captain John Bogan Jr.

    It most likely is up for sale due to Frank Mundus recently passing away.

    I have been on the boat before when Mundus was running the boat with Tommy, That boat is by far the smelliest boat in the Montauk fleet .

    It deffiantly is a piece of history who ever buys the boat i hope they restore it properly.
