I agree, driving/commuting North/South on the Garden State Pkwy (GSPWY) SUCKS in NJ! Unless you commute by 'car service' then it's doable because you're not the one driving. Taking the train NJ Transit North depends on how far 'North', because you'll have to change trains, which means tighter schedules.
Bay got HAMMERED and has tons of debris in there. I'd avoid boating
there if possible this season.
Figure we're driving 1 piling per hour x hundreds, plus other work. Commercial
dock gets the work first, then the Head
Boats (fishing/daily/overnight)....THEN the 'retail docks' will be getting done. Floaters are being trucked up from Florida! That is AFTER they have been built down there....looking like June right now....
Overheard a few guys in the cockpit
of their 45+ offshore fishing
yacht swapping beers Saturday..."you guys hear that now they are telling us they (marina) are not giving any refunds on contracts for 2013?!!!(not family
language!). " Well, what the heck do they expect us to do sit in the parking lot in our boats all Summer?!!" Another guy said. I yelled up to them, "How the heck do you expect them to even move the travel lift
when they are 300 pilings at the launch?" You guys are high and dry until at least June" One of the guys says, "guess it's time to go buy a smaller boat and find an open launch ramp". I agree it's what it's going to come to for most this season I'm afraid.
Chris are you across from 'The Pickle'? The rack job place down the road from 'Windnsea'? I'm 07716, PM me if you need help unwinterizeing your boat. I thought maybe I could get him into the 'canal' down off 'Cheerful Lane', but his draft is too much for that place.
