I kept my first boat and Islander 28 draft 5 ft in Dillons Creek marina on the Toms River for 10 years before I moved to the Chesapeake and bought our current C&C 35 MKIII. No doubt there are areas you have to be carefull, but there was plenty of sailing room the many years we sailed the Barnegat. I especially loved those 1 PM afternoon onshore breezes with cool air and no waves to speak of every day in the summer. We loved Tices shoal where you could dihi9ngy in and build a bonfire in seclusion. When we wanted to take our trips we anchored behind the Barnegat lightshouse and went out that way. Baarnget in the AM is usually a piece of of cake no matter the tide as there is little wind at 7AM usually as opposed to comming in the the afternoon. That way out beat the long trek out Manesquan with the narrow shallow channel, 5 knot current in the Point Pleasant canal and the bridges you had to wait in in that current with the powerboaters lined up behind you glaring. They never quite understood why I waited bow into the current stern facing the bridge looking at them at times waiting for the bridge to open.

Enjoy the bay there I have fond memories although I must say I love the open waters of the Chesapeake compared to that, though I got to do more offshore sailing there.
