Capt Wayne King first started fishing when his father would take him to Freeport from their home in New Jersey where they would rent an outboard skiff and spend the day fishing in the Great South Bay. Eventually the trip got to be too much, so his father moved the family to Huntington Long Island and bought his first boat, a 40' Novi. Around 1960 his father started to operate the boat, the KING GEORGE as a charter boat out of the Babylon Town Dock with Wayne as deckhand, fishing the Great South Bay and Fire Island Inlet area. Between fishing trips Wayne would supplement his income by digging clams in the bay. In addition, every year his father would bring the boat to Montauk for a vacation, where the family would live on the boat and fish for two weeks.

In 1964, Wayne and his father George took on the job of building a new boat. A fiberglass hull was purchased and together they spent the year as boatbuilders. As soon as it was complete, and before he got a chance to fish on his handiwork, Wayne was drafted into the army where he spent the better part of two years.

When he returned home he continued to work with his father as well as digging clams, and in 1974 he bought his uncle's boat the Capt Joe, a party boat which he sailed out of Freeport.

In 1978 he contracted to have his current boat the KING WAYNE built. The boat a fifty footer was constructed in Harkers Island North Carolina, and was complete enough to be brought to Freeport in 1979. The first year with the King Wayne was spent sailing as an over six charter boat, while continuing to finish it in between trips.

In 1980, with the KING WAYNE finally completed, Wayne brought the boat to Montauk to fish full time. He couldn't have timed the move better. Wayne's boat filled a void that was created when Capt Dick Vigilant stopped operating his charter boat, the TRITON. Wayne, having the only charter boat that could accommodate large groups was an instant success, and has continued to be so.
