Tom’s River

Sunday June 9

Still inside today but good progress, made it from Atlantic City to Tom’s River (north end of Barnegat Bay)  Probably all we could have done offshore and a lot easier on the boat, probably about 70 miles (as the crow might do it) more for us given all the twists and turns of the ICW.

 The boat is now home so to speak, Marine Traders were sold out of Bay Head New Jersey, just up the river from here.

 Not many pictures today, forgot to take the camera up top this morning, so just these two of Tom’s River (officially it does not rate an apostrophe but it should).

A few classic sailboats


and the Tom’s River waterfront.


And just for a change a quick shot of the inside  of the boat, charts  and wine predominate.


Definitely staying here tomorrow, small craft warnings all around, may stay until Wednesday to catch the good weather between Manasquan and Sandy Hook, and the tides in New York Harbor.

Tomorrow will depend on the weather.

  1. Your first two shots are incredibly similar to waterfronts here on the islands of Puget Sound.
    Sorry the weather is so poor.

  2. The best laid plans, LW. Everything depends on the weather, does it not?

    Very civilised looking interior. Is that the main saloon, and how many berths does she have?

  3. Thanks for the chart reference.

    Forget what I said about the charts being too complicated (on the Atlantic post) when you spell out exactly what I’m looking for – no problem 🙂

    By the way, the OZ flag has a star under the Union Jack, the NZ flag doesn’t, which makes me think that the flag on the schooner (and admittedly the flag in the pic is waving around a bit) could be NZ, I’m no expert and in the words of JM “I could of course be wrong” 😕

    Here’s hoping for better weather for you

  4. Ara: Yes it’s the deckhouse (living room) it’s a good size about ten by fifteen feet. The Galley is down the steps to the front by the wheel. There are two berths in a forward cabin beyond (V berths) with a separate head and shower (en suite?). Then there is a cabin behind the wheelhouse (I was standing on the steps when I took the shot). That has a double berth and it’s own head and shower. Settees in the salon also originally could be made up into berths but have been converted to more comfortable seating. A good boat for two people and OK for four for the odd weekend.

  5. Morning Soutie, sounds like you are having some weather issues too. Uniformly grim here again today now forecasting ‘”Violent thunderstorms with damaging winds and hail” not what is normally expected in mid-June.

    The charts are very detailed ‘cos the water is very thin.

    Your reference to the flag had me checking this post then I remembered the one I haven’t posted over from my site, I’ll do it now so the comment makes sense.
