"The Schooner A.J. Meerwald is New Jersey’s official Tall Ship. She is a restored oyster dredging schooner, whose home port is in Bivalve, Commercial Township, New Jersey. Launced in 1928, A.J. Meerwald was one of hundreds of schooners built along South Jersey’s Bayshore before the decline of the shipbuilding industry which coincided with the Great Depression."

Cale, I was not in the photo and I didn't take the photo either. I was sitting up in the club watching. The guys on the left are our "crew" the others are from other clubs on the river. the girls are our outgoing princess and queen of the DRYL and the girl with the cast is our new princess. :) We don't really break our princesses leg so they won't go to another club :)
