I only go swimming up the cove from time to time. never noticed a film before when i got out?? But that's what my shower is for, right

We mainly go up there to party. usually have 15 - 20 boats tied up with our group.

Probably head out tonight somewhere..... Rock Lobster ??

Shower...no show on my boat. Next year I can start looking for a floating condo like yours.

Back in the day my day and uncle's spent every weekend anchored in the cove. Hell most of the Boats in the state marine too. Go up on Friday after work and stay till late Sunday.

When we go out on the river we put in at Hargrove's and boat north to Trenton Marine, Tullytown cove, but "the Hairy Canary" was sold three weeks ago. Now the 15' Boston Whaler is out on the river on a Sunday for a cruise, till the replacement for the Magnum is found.

If you're out in the Chesapeake, we'll be creek-hopping with friends, starting with Still Pond around 10:00 AM, then working our way up through Lloyd's, Back Creek (Sassafras), and finally winding up just across from Skipjack Cove near Georgetown. You know the boat - silver 382 FasTech.

Actually , making a lunch run to the C.I. then perhaps a short ride. Taking the wifes boss and her husband out for her birthday

The Hairy Canary was sold . Where did it go???

Russ, how is that ramp and docks. Particularly at low tide I haven't been up there in years. How about $'s and hours of operation?

My father owned "the Hairy Canary" for the last 18 years, and sold to someone from Toms River, NJ. It is will out on Barnegat Bay. I have many good memories on that boat, it will be missed.

Whereabouts might you be on the Rancocas? I know the waters there well. Don't think there is enough water once you get past W-boro. Maybe Delanco? I almost bought a house across from old Big "D". Oh, yeah Do you know where Dunbar marina is? How about Ebble's marina?
