Sunken Sunset Queen in Sheepshead Bay

Sunset Queen One

We passed by the Sheepshead Bay waterfront spot where a party boat, the Sunset Queen, went down last weekend. The 89-foot long boat was surrounded by a boom to contain oil still leaking from fuel tanks, and workers were toiling in bitter cold on the partly submerged boat, which is located at a pier near Emmons and Ocean Avenue. The Coast Guard is investigating the sinking although it is believed the boat went down from natural causes and not from foul play. A number of fishing boats that take out day trippers are moored on Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay but the Sunset Queen was the only party paddle boat on that stretch of the Southern Brooklyn waterfront. But not anymore. Unless, of course, you can refloat and fix something like that. In which case, party on, Sunset Queen of Sheepshead Bay.
