Ya know this really pisses me off. It seems the old farts, fisherman, and blow boaters are taking over. When was the last time a fisherman was given a ticket for fishing inside the channel? I am always dodging these damn guys everytime I go around Sandy Hook, or going up to NYC.
And a 40mph speed limit, that is rediculous. I can't even do 40mph on my boat. I mean I could see a 50-60mph speedlimit on the weekends. Usually it's so busy in the Navesink and Shrewsbury river I can't go fast safely anyway. For that I go out to the bay.
As far as barnegat though! The bay is friggin huge, and if you want to go fast there is plenty of room if you go out of the channel and know where you are going. Maybe the speedlimit should only be in the channel???? I always thought there was a "so called" speedlimit anyway? The way I understand it, is you can go as fast as you want when not close to other vessels? Damn blow boaters just hate speedboaters. Sometimes a few bad eggs ruin it for all of us.
