The Helcat
181 Thames Street
Groton, CT 06340

The Hel-Cat II is the 5th vessel to be owned within the Glas family. Those of you familiar with the Glas family know they started in Montauk in the 1946. The first vessel owned was a converted 38′ wooden yacht named the Frances Ann. After that came the Helen, a 47′ wooden ex-rum runner. The first custom built steel vessel was Helen II followed by the Hel-Cat (famous steel catamaran) that made its mark in the 1970’s and 80’s by running trips from CT to Block Island and Montauk for monster blues, codfish and fluke. No one has ever forgotten about her trips to the secret Alligator Ledge.
