Just heard from DaveP - He'll be issuing some good news. The local sailing clubs (whose members were photographed running their tenders through the No-Wake zones in Dave's report) are, however, not likely to vote for DaveP for President in the near future. All he did was present facts, but those facts didn't fit their emotions.

TD was noticeable in his absence.

State Boat Regulation Commission considers speed limits on Barnegat Bay

KIRK MOORE
STAFF WRITER


MARGATE -- Advocates and opponents of proposed boat speed limits on New Jersey coastal waters made their arguments to the state Boat Regulation Commission today, and commission chairman Roger K. Brown said he thinks it unlikely that a broad speed limit can be imposed on Barnegat Bay.

Brown said it's more likely that the commission might recommend expanding no-wake zones, as it did in 2003 when powerboat enthusiasts and critics last grappled over speed, noise and traffic on the bay.

"Maybe we need to look at that again...but to put a speed limit on the whole of Barnegat Bay doesn't make sense,'' Brown said, after a crowd of about 25 boaters spent the morning making their views known to the advisory panel. The commissioners did not take any action and they will discuss the issue again at their November meeting, Brown said.

The Aug. 2 death of Robert Post of Essex Fells in a boat collision led to renewed calls for speed limits, and an announcement from state Sen. Paul sarlo, D-Bergen, that he will proposed legislation to establish a 10 mph nighttime speed limit.

Five weeks after the crash that killed Post, "we know nothing more than was initially reported,'' said David Patnaude, president of the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club, speaking against speed limits. "But yet three days later...Senator Sarlo came out and said it was necessary to have a 10 mph speed limit at night.''

Speed limit supporters, most of them from northern Barnegat Bay towns, said a speed limit is needed for safety and to reduce the inimidation felt by small-boat sailors and parents.

Reckless boating in the northern bay is "at a crisis level,'' said Jim Cadranell of Point Pleasant. ""On the Metedeconk River....many powerboats weave their way through small boats at 40 to 50 mph.''

Good job guys!
I spoke to Dave around 940am before the meeting and offered my support from a far. I wanted to be there but I couldn't break free from work this morning.

Unfortunately I was unable to get the day off to be there in person.

Regardless, from what I heard, I pissed some people off !

Here is a Gallery to the rest of the pics shot that day:

P.S.

Dave P,

Should I be making contact with Brick's Council ?
