Public Presentation: "The New Clearwater Garvey"

For over thirty years NJ Friends of Clearwater's the Adam Hyler has been the mainstay of the summer Environmental Sail Program jointly run with NMHA on the Navesink.

On Sunday, March 30, 2014, this wooden boat, well past its prime, was donated to the Tuckerton Museum. 

A NEW garvey is being designed and built jointly by NJ Friends and NMHA. Work started in the fall of 2013 and is progressing well, and it is hoped that it will be launched in time for renewing the Environmental Sail Program.

Tom Gibson, a long-time member of NJ Friends and NMHA and an Adam Hyler skipper, will describe the Environmental sail program, the Adam Hyler, and the design and build process for the new garvey.

7:30 PM - Light refreshments. 8:00 PM - Meeting starts

Note: Bahrs is open for dinner, bar snacks before and after the presentation
