    Ok, two things that I learned about the Sayreville ramp today. What TJ meant to say is that it is "slick" because there is 3 inches of mud on the ramp when it is low tide. You cannot even see the blocks under the mud and you will see tire tracks a few inches deep. One of the ramps is at a slightly different angle and thus less mud, so when you leave tomorrow make sure to scope them out first. I left at least an hour and a half before low tide. I'd hate to see it at it lowest.

    The second thing! The floating docks there will damage your ski when tying them up, so be very careful. Although it looks like they are wooden planks on top of rubber floats, there is a aluminum L bracket between them and when boats make some wakes, it will scrape up your registration numbers. Ask me how I know. I'm just thankful that it did not damage the paint! Right at the ramps are some "lower" docks and I would suggest that you tie up there and quickly get your vehicle parked and take the ski out or have a friend hold your ski while you park. It will be in the way for the next person going in or out, but at least you won't damage your ski.

    yes, Adam that current is very strong...you have to hold on to your ski as you step on to the floating dock and pull out your rope...hmm... wonder if there's any speed gains going with a current that strong...just saying..

    No, you missed the point. The point is if your ski rocks up and down it can hit the metal frame on the dock and damage your ski. It has nothing to do with the currents. I had no problem with the currents whatsoever. I even got it on the trailer without any issue at all.

    come to think of it we went towards the Drissoll br. but decided to turn around..fuel issues for all of us...the current was so strong going inland towards the Sayreville as we headed back, we turn off our skis,at least I did and let the current bring us part of the way...saves on gas LOL
