Default NJ members, need hlep with GSP

I am looking to trailer my boat down to Toms River this weekend. Can I trailer it down the Garden State Pky??? I know that we use to trailer the race car to English town on the GSP and they also allow Buses but what about a 28' boat on a twin axel trailer????

HB,
No problem, just watch out at the tolls, don't get caught in the ez pass lane unless your pass is for the trailer also.

I run the Parkway all the time, Check with your EZ pass if you can use yours for Trailer, I just went to Florida and they told me I can for limited use the Toll will automaticlly adjust the price,

You won't have any problems towing on the GSP. Just keep to the RIGHT at all toll plaza's. It seems to have become a game just trying to find the cash lanes at the tollbooths.

I just towed my 31 Scarb down to Tom's River last weekend. I blew up 1 motor and towed it back on Monday.

Do you run in that area often. I have a house in Tom's River right on the water. When I get back in, maybe we can meet up some time.

They are right. I'm thinking of towing my 28' to Maryland from CT and I called the NJ State Troopers. They said no problem.

Just watch out for idiots !! Those lanes are only 9' wide I think ,where as most roads are 10' .It is going to seam real narrow ,especialy on the bridges . But you'll make it ! Just don't scuff up the sides of the boat !!

I did it no prob
30' Baja
Toll booths are a little bit tight but other than that you will have no problems. I was cruising about 75 on the open boring parts
in traffic I kept it at 55-60 ish
Went just fine

My boat is up and down the GSP a few times a month. Boot is right, lanes are pretty tight but its a good road so atleast your not bouncing.
I have to work tomorrow otherwise I would meet you over at Andy's. My boat is there now just waiting to get Fiberglass touch up. Dam Hudson River sharks.
