From the YCSO,

Yates County, by resolution, approved the donation of a 1997 Penn Yan patrol boat to the Finger Lakes Boating Museum in Hammondsport NY for display. This process began under the leadership of retired Yates County Sheriff Ronald G. Spike and was finally completed last week, according to Sheriff Frank Ryan.

“It was a pleasure to bring this project to completion, and place one of the final boats that the Penn Yan Boat Company produced, into a place where it can be appreciated and seen by all who have interest in the history of Penn Yan Boats, and specifically, a marked Yates County Sheriff Patrol boat that was manufactured locally here in Penn Yan”.

The Finger Lakes Boating Museum was equally thrilled:

“We thank all involved in allowing this boat to proudly be displayed, including the members of the Yates County Legislature for approving this transfer and the Yates County Sheriff’s Office marine patrol unit for facilitating the transfer.”
