Hey raimmn,
I've seen them on a couple/few creeks up and down the Bay from Tuckerton to Toms River, Barnegat and others. Gotta wait to get a schedule for this summer.

If he builds this one up for himself, I am scoring a ride for sure this time.
Do they still run the regazza in Red Bank in marine park every year? I am pretty sure that they do. Maybe we put together an OSO\NJ meet up that weekend. That would be fun.
I take the train to work in NYC each day, and there is a ratty boatyard on the raritan river that I see from the train. He used to have an orange skiff painted just like the General Lee, complete with Confederate flag and big 01 on the side. Always made me smile during my hellish commute.
Last year i saw someone tearing up the shark river in a skiff.....LOUD
Molds!!!! Now we all know where to get one of these badboyz custom built, Livorsi gauges, Zero Effort throttles ((ooops forgot they're foot pedal!! lol) Momo Steering wheel, Mayfair Steering etc .. They should run us around $235,000.99 when all said and tricked out LMAO! hhmmmmm Gladiator or Jersey Speed Skiff??? hhmmmmm. But seriously Mc911 maybe a custom could be popped fro someone?? (or me )

... see if you can find out if any events are scheduled for around there this summer. I'll be getting some kinda schedule in the middle of the spring and it will include the flat bottem Garvey, that run the same circuit. Those are really fantastic to watch too. Can't find any pics of them and don't have any on the harddrive ... yet ...

Here's the ABPA schedule so far. I don't see the Red Bank, NJ race listed.....maybe they don't run that anymore? http://www.goboatracing.net/racesites.htm Lake Hopatcong and Wildwood Crest is on there though.

NJGR8FUL - If you're serious about getting a boat made, I'll ask my uncle if he has the time. He keeps pretty busy with the boatyard. You want hull, or fully rigged boat? Shoot me an email to [email protected] and give me a few details and a phone #. I should have time for a call this weekend. Where is LH, NJ? Lanoka Harbor?

They stopped running the Red Bank race at least 7-8 years ago now, maybe longer. They had a lot of problems with sponsors I believe. It's to bad....



Shooter, I know exactly where you are. The house across the way has a pool house and pool right on the bay. My friend lives on the canal right next to you. I guess we haven't met yet, I thought you were someone else?

A few years ago there was one for sale in Rumson. I was going to buy it to have something to play around with on the river. I wish I did now, they are a wild ride to say the least.
