The Boats

We honor the building accomplishments of others, and are proud of our own achievements.We also work hard to preserve historically significant boats.

In keeping with NMHA's heritage mission, NMHA supports various efforts related to the construction and operation of vessels that were commonly found on the Navesink river. If there is sufficient public interest NMHA will support the design, construction and operation of such vessels.

NMHA uses various approaches in support of this effort such as books student design projects, historical research efforts, concept studies, actual restoration, such as the Jet 14, or just dreaming for the fun of it. These pages contain some of the projects that NMHA supports.

A significant portion of this information has been enlarged and further described in the NMHA book: A Chronology of Boating on the Navesink River.
