A look at Long Beach Island, NJ
During the 1970’s Sunfish class sailboats were extremely popular in the waters of Long Beach Island. There were clones of the Sunfish boats such as the Scorpion pictured here.

I heard stories from my Dad about the ski jump in the bay. As I was going through some old slides, I found some images.
The fish factory processed Bunker. It was very active in the 1970’s. At some point after that, it ceased operations.
Tuckerton Creek is one of the oldest seaports in the United States. Here are a few scenes from 2009
I was looking at the New Jersey Maritime Museum’s site and came across a link to Shipwrecks along the New Jersey Coast.
From 2011, a jet skier is trying to get back to shore before an oncoming storm hits. This one is cutting it a bit close. With the storm this close, lightning is a real danger. (Yes, that includes me taking the photo)
Throughout the summer season and especially in the fall, you can hear the roar of Jersey skiff and Garvey races on on the bay.
I’m not sure how old this photo is. Given the boat in the foreground and condition of the image, I think the photo might have been in the 1950’s.
