Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost

Yes, same chart. I'd expect the northern jetty to be partly awash or possibly submerged there, but the line from the inlet, the extension from the northern part of that jetty, and the linear run out to the light, would all make it look fairly hard to miss the northern jetty. As opposed to the one on the south side, cutting catty-corner from the light to the shore. That looks like it wouldn't be as obvious to locate, from the water.

Maybe if they built an amusement and fishing pier on top of it, and put Disney in charge? And they could bring that Italian cruise ship alongside, for a real tourist attraction?
