Boat Ramp Disaster at Money Island in the 1990s

Leroy Pierce sent these photos that he took in the middle 1990s when he was working for Towboat US. Leroy wrote “we dove to get crane attached to get the marina crane out. Then the tow truck which had the boat trailer attached. Tried to bring boat up on slack low tide. Marina crane was trying to lift trailer over concrete ledge while tow truck pulled up. Crane slipped on wet ramp pushed tow truck into creek and went over ledge as well”.

Cheap dock space

C4 and C5

We recently negotiated the availability of dock space for larger vessels at Money Island. Our largest commercial dock tenant has extra space so we agreed to make it available to others. This dock space is ideal for recreational or commercial boats not in active use, or sale, estate ownership, or repossessions.

Price: We estimate that our dock space is half the rate of Cape May New Jersey, 40 miles to our south. Our target rate is $100 per linear foot annual rate and lower short term rates as low as $25 per day are available.

Vessel Size: We can theoretically accomodate any size vessel up to 150+ feet although some modifications would be likely necessary for the larger size vessels.

Depth: Greater than 20 feet at low tide.

Accommodations: Our marina is rustic and rural. Water and electric are available at some locations.
