Re: South Jersey anyone?

Welcome! I grew up in Gloucester Township (not county), but I'm familiar with your general area. The problem you'll encounter is that there really aren't many "big" lakes in that area. There are Timber, Victory, and Sunset in the southeastern corner of the county, and Malaga lake and Scotland Run, but they all suffer from the same problem - they are only moderately long, and are pretty narrow. So, if the wind isn't coming from the correct direction, you'll be doing a lot of tacking, and not a lot of sailing. If the boat is on a trailer, I'd consider taking it down to the Pennsville area, to Union Lake near Millville, or down to the shore. The bays along the shore would be great for a 17'.
