Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost

Absolutely I pull the charts. Barnegat specifically doesnt chart the inner markers as they can be moved due to shifting shoals. I also call the Coast Gaurd Station there before entering the inlet to get updates and ask about conditions.

Our SOP when we come in an inlet is main sail up ( in case the engine fails we can sail back out of the inlet,) and life jackets on with protable VHF attached. This is not to be an alarmest, but it is a highly intense time for me when we traverse the inlets.

In addtion I watch the other larger boats transiting to see if there are any nuances or conditions they appear to go through before I travel it. sually there are many larger power boats.

Wow great to hear,,,that road was so dangerous and how many hours did those people wait in line in the summer to get from the maoinland toOC. It should help the businesses and access in the middle of the island by water

No offense Jentine, but not all the oil evaporates. Any man who's been degraded by having to use a loofa sponge to get tarballs off his feet after walking the beach will testify to that fact!

No need to worry Captain Force

Ottos and I were referring to the 9th St Bridge leading to Ocean City NJ from Sommer Point NJ. he lives in that area and I lived in Ocean city NJ for 18 years before moving to Maryland.

All clear in the Barnegat inlet

Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost

Otter, I would think the diesel fuel is the least of their worries, considering the vast amount of tonnage sunk off that coast during WW2 which is STILL leaking fuel. In the 60's it used to be normal to go to the beach and use "tar remover" to get the tar balls off, coming from the same fuel.

Allowing diving or recovery IN THE INLET during daylight hours would seem far more dangerous, as traffic would no doubt be coming through with no idea the inlet was closed and then, where do they go? Not a good thing. So yes, I can see their logic, limited opportunity, least danger.

The boat? If it is like many other inlets, the wreck would be pulled out with the outbound tide and rapidly go into deeper water outside of the inlet. Might be more appropriate to use a RIB with sonar, even a fishfinder, to locate the wreck.

Really, the authorities there are probably more concerned with safety, for traffic and for divers, than anything else. And as long as that wreck doesn't obstruct navigation--they're not going to get all hot and bothered about 300 gallons of fuel.

Good point

The grounding occured outside the actual inlet on the sunken part of the jetty marking the entrance. It is an area of consideral p[eril from rocks as well as breakers so the chances of the boat survuvung and staying there whole are minimal.

I think the was what the original poster was refering to. Had he been allowed to just pull the vessel off the rocks and get it into clamer protected waters before the possible breakup it could have avoided ANY fuel spill, The governement bueracrycy of it maybe contributed to a situation which could have been avoided had logic prevailed.
