When the weather is clear, chances are that you will find Bob Contreras from Mamaroneck crisscrossing the Long Island Sound near Rye, N.Y. and Greenwich, Conn. He said he’s been boating there for years.
One of his boats even has the likeness of his father on it.
“Put a mural and a dedication to my father [standing in front of a plane] on the back… never knowing the story… what it all meant,” Contreras told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams.
