Re: Sailing The Point Pleasant Canal

Joe that would be ideal, I do have a vehicle to tow it all set up, just couldn't find a trailer. if anyone knows of one for sale or for rent in the nj, ny, ct area please send it my way. additionally if anyone owns a trailer that would fit my boat I'd be willing to pay a couple hundred dollars just to borrow it for one day.

Re: Sailing The Point Pleasant Canal

It's funny, Joe, I got the same advice when I was going to move my boat. I couldn't find a trailer that was set up for a sailboat, let alone one set up for my swing keel Catalina 25 (a very common boat) for under $1,000. Even the el-cheapo ones, by the time I was done making sure they were roadworthy, had proper supports, etc., were going to cost me more than it cost to have the boat trucked professionally. And then I didn't have to store the trailer anywhere while I tried to find another buyer.

Dave, at all aboard (NJ boat hauler.com) is a great guy and does a great job. He moved my boat in 2010. If you decide to go that way, he's the man.

Re: Sailing The Point Pleasant Canal

You sailed into Barnegat Inlet sans engine in a gale....now this I gotta see....I have transitted that inlet well over 100 times and NEVER seen a sailboat sail in not under power let alone in a gale.

With the amount of room, shoals, current and 100 yd wide channel at best in most places that would not only been foolhardy but dangerous to others also, and thatsin normal easy wind. A gale.....hard to beleive my friend. Next well find you sailed back to Barnegat Bay through the Sedge Islands

Just an FYI Barnegat while passable is not an inlet to be taken lightly with with with a NE or E wind component
