Re: Raritan Bay, NJ side - Looking for Info on Slips, Ramps Trailered Storage

Hi Marc, I'm not sure what the deal is with Morgan and storing the boat on a trailer on-site with the mast up? and self launching is. They do have a ramp, and I've seen trailers stored onsite.

A simple phone call to them should answer that question.

But, I figured I check to make sure that you are aware that you will have to transit two lift bridges. A RR brdge and the Rt 35 Hwy. Bridge. If I'm not mistaken your mast is 27 ft. and the Hwy. Bridge clearance is 25 ft at MHW. You'll want a very reliable engine in there if you end up on the creek. Generally speaking the creek is very protected from weather compared to other locations on the bay. There's a decent current that runs down to Morgan at peak flow. Less so at lockwoods, next door, which is further off the main creek.

Sorry, I couldn't be of more help.
