Free first-timers boat ramp offer

2018 UPDATE: This offer is replaced; the blog post is obsolete. For 2018 the ramp fee is waived for all boats. Marina membership is required to use the ramp or any marina facility. Annual family membership is $50.

We are testing a new marketing promotion as the flounder season gets started this year that is intended to introduce more boaters to the convenience and level of service available here at Money Island.

Normally the ramp fee is $15 for boats up to 18 feet and $20 for larger boats that typically require assistance with the launch and loading.

We advise against using the boat ramp within 90 minutes of low tide. Low tide time is available using the link at the lower left of this page or by calling the marina at 856-723-0294.

This offer is valid for first time use of Money Island Marina boat ramp and is available at the discretion of the marina manager. One offer per customer. Minimum purchase $10 bait 

Live/fresh bait is always subject to availability so call ahead 856-723-0294. Gratuity is not included.

This offer ends on 8/20/2016 or when the ending date is changed on this web page. Please send comments/complaints/feedback about this promotional offer to Tony Novak at cell/text 856-723-0294.

Fish cleaning table rebuild project complete

20160612_161108915_iOS.jpg

The rebuild of our primary fish cleaning table is complete thanks to help from Andy with the water line and Jim’s tip about my design flaw that is now corrected. The underlying motivation was to conserve water (as part of our participation in New Jersey’s Clean Marina program), improve appearance and increase durability of the equipment. I didn’t guess that it would cost $500 in plumbing parts plus the labor. But hopefully this project with new bras valves will outlast it’s builders. The brass water valves we are replacing appear to be from the 1940s.
