To NJHippo, Welcome to SailNet. As a former northern Jersey boy myself, it is always nice to see a fellow Jerseyite taking up the sport.

in that case you might find this book interesting and inspiring.

Written by a dear friend about his move from northern NJ to the wilds of coastal NC.

oh, and welcome!
If your friend is in Whortonsville, I can only hope that he is okay since Whortonsville really was hit hard with a record high storm surge.

Thank you for the kind wishes. Yes Whortonsville took a serious hit from this storm. I keep my boat there and reports are slow to come ... roads are still impassable.

I too am a Jersey boy (Clifton) ... it's a fading memory for me at this point. But sadly my friend is gone, taken by cancer. His inspiration lives on in those of who knew him.

I hope that you came through the storm okay and I am sorry about losing your friend. I am from Englewood. I don't know how old you are but in 1968 I went out a few times with a girl from Clifton named Pam Angel.

thanks Jeff.

Well I got word that my boat made it through just fine, but the marina took a lot of damage.

In 1968 I was 8! I don't know Pam Angel or the Angel Family, but I'm sure she was a cutie ... afterall, Clifton is known for it's good looking residents :)
