View Full Version : Jersey shore (Long Branch area) chance to meet.

08-08-2008, 12:12 PM
The Long Branch Iceboat & Yacht Club is hosting their third "Thunder On the Shrewsbury" this Sept 20th. Granted this is principally for Jersey speed skiffs built of "that other stuff", but there should be at least a couple of wood skiffs there, and this year they are teaming up with the "Navesink Maritime Heritage Association" for their wooden boat show. This is a nicely attended, well organized get together for owners, followers, & fans of the Jersey speed skiffs (boats even come up from Fla for it) - fun to see & experience if you don't know them.

Maybe some of us can meet & put names to faces. I'm planning on making it.

This is off the speedskiffs.com web site.
