Re: Barnegat Bay Sneakboxes
I have one that I hunt out of. Its forty years old and used primarily as a "stool boat" --its tied to the blind in the marsh and is where we store our decoys. We row it maybe 100 yards on occassion to retrieve a bird (when the tide's too high to walk). I am NO expert rower, but it moves along easily, and I can control it in wind--sometimes gale force winds.
Never sailed it.
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
