And here’s the second of my two trips while I was in New Jersey. I launched at the top of Barnegat Bay and sailed my way down 29 miles south to just past the inlet. I made a diversion through the marsh over to the lighthouse and would have continued 17 miles to a public ramp, but I called it quits since I was relying on my father in law for transportation and didn’t want to be too late. I tested out my electric trolling motor setup for the first time as well.
Recently my wife and I went up to New Jersey to help her parents move and I brought my sailboat along. The first of my two daysails was on the Shrewsbury River with a friend who helped me fiberglass the hull. It’s a pretty protected area and we stopped at an island for lunch and saw a pod of dolphins.
