Note: The yacht Ranger was built by H.J. Gielow in City Island, New York in 1910. Her owner was Mr. Thomas W. Slocum. She was 145 feet in length, 22 feet in breadth and drew 7 feet. This steam yacht was taken by the U.S. Navy for service in World War I; she was taken to the old MacKay Ship Yard in East Boston. Her yacht interior was stripped-out and the bar remained at the yard until it was closed in the late 1950's.
