Default 2007 Delaware River role call

We had another great day on the Delaware River today. There seems to be more and more go fast boat out there latley. Today I saw Fountains, Formulas, Donzis, Bajas, Checkmates, 1 Activator, 1 Pantera (mine ), 1 Powerquest, Scarabs, Sunsations, 1 Warlock, 1 Stephen, and a flat bottom blown jet boat.

People always give the river a bad rap. But I disagree. I think its a great place to go boating. There is always plenty of water (50ft in the chanel). Lots of places to throw a anchor and hang out. Plenty of room to play with the water toys off to the side of the channel out of the way. Listen to the concerts at the Camden water front or cruise by Penns. Landing. Of course see the Fireworks on the water in July. And of course run all the go fast boats.

I use the West Deptford ramp and usually cruise up to Trenton or hang out at the island across from National Park. If you boat in the Delaware River were do drop in and hang out and with what kind of boat.

I keep mine on a lift in Neshaminy State Park marina. We were out yesterday afternoon till about midnight. There was a real good fireworks show at Burlington island last night.

I was rafted up with mostly cruisers except 2 other of my friends were there with a formula & baja. We saw a Bad Boy Powerboat pull into Curtains to get fuel. looked like it was 30' with a BIG single. We also Saw a 35 ZX Donzi, an Apache, and a 34 Scarab.......And I only traveled about 5 miles.

Hey Russ-- I live two miles south of the Delaware memorial bridges. I always boat on the Maryland side because the C&D
canal is 10 min from the ramp. I have a friend who boats up your way. The island you talk about across from National park how is it nice bottom and beach? I'd like to come up that way whats the best spot to visit first. I have a 31 sonic twin 496hos draws about 2.5. Any suggestions?

Tell me of a nice ramp on the jersey side and I'll be over there. Since there is no dock anymore @ trenton ramp , my crew refuses to swim to the boat (puzzies).

Hi Shaun I used to live near you (North River Drive in Pennsville and in Oakwood Beach in Salem). The Island has a nice sand bottom. No mud (like Pennsville, I really hated to fall off my jet ski and touch the bottom, LOL) and no rocks. Most boats anchor at low tide. You can check out Dave and Busters In Phila. Go up to Burlington and get some grub at Curtains.

Jdub I have family in Pennsville near you. I go down your street just to look at your boat, LOL. The Excaliber is new right. That boat looks great and looks brand new!!! Hey this thread is about the Delaware River. We lose alot of boats to the C&D already. LOL

I drop in at West Deptford. But you have to watch low tide. Hargrove Marina on Creek Road is nice on Big Timber Creek. I'm sure they are more closer to you.
