P.O. Joe Henry


I entered the PD in 1955, was assigned to Harbor Patrol in 1957, where I held a 100 ton Captainís license.  I worked most boats at most of the posts, but was assigned mostly to the College Point Unit until I retired in 1975.

 

I then opened up a Nautical Decorations/ Marine Antiques and Fishing Items store, called Triangle Sea Sales since 1975 to the present date and am still doing it!!  My store is located in Greenport, NY, near the end of Eastern Long Island. Be sure to drop in and say hello when youíre in the area and weíll swap stories.  I'm located on 36 South Street, in Greenport Village, and also have a website: www.triangleseasales.com  Iím open 7 days a week all summer, and other times by chance or appointment (at 78 years old, Iím supposed to be retired, ya know!)
