    Launch at LBI

    Other than pay 50 dollars to have Watersports of LBI put the ski in and out and wash it for you, are there any other launches near Manahawkin, LBI area?

    some of the local marina`s are 175 a year, not worht it, and most of the dickage is not jet ski friendly...
    people don`t forget about causeway marina, 20 ramp fee and it is a wide concrete ramp with plenty of parking...
    ship bottom blows that you have to launch in the sand while the boaters use the concrete ramp, fck that place...

    haha, I can`t even say what I pay for my park membership...lol...

    Seems like alot of issues down in barnegat...I have to say the Rumson launch is Perrfect...$100 a yr 24/7/365...launch and go to the right your going towards Sandy hook bay and eventually the ocean ...you wanna get soaked and want the rough stuff thats the place..there's a 1/2 mile wake zone..feels like 100 miles..if you launch and go to the left you go in the Navesink where its choppy with other boats..great for wave jumping...but has a good 2-3 mile stretch ,no wake zones... water can be calm to ripple(white caps) you can open up for some nice sprint runs...now you've gone away from the ocean and the water is calm ..the Navesink becomes Swimming river.. very calm but alot of kayaks and crab boats and a short wake zone and 2 bridges..now your entering the Red Bank trail.. about 2 miles of dead flat water BUT some dangerous snake turns..its a short trail run compared to Mudbug lol BUT NICE..do your GPS runs and have a few ''shootouts" (drag racing) there...
