We also found good fishing at the false Hook.
You may know this, but sometime in the last 25 years or so they greatly extended and expanded the Earl pier. ... used to be two miles long, it must be close to four miles long now.

Holy crap!!! Just looked at it on Google Earth. That's a major hike. We had a bus to get to the ship.

I grew up in Sayreville. Used to ride our bikes down there and fish and swim by the Robert E. Lee restaurant. It's amazing I never drowned down there! lol

Can anyone ID the maker of the boat marked with the arrow?
Thanks, Joe

I'd be willing to bet she was built by Andy Ulrichsen (Ulrichsen boat works) in Keyport N.J.

(The same builder as my family's green skiff above.)

Sure looks like my old Ulrichsen but mine didn't have a window in the hull.

Thanks. I was hoping it was a Luhrs. My father had a 30' Luhrs flybridge, wood lapstrake hull, probably a 1963 or earlier. We kept it behind our house when we lived in Massapequa, NY (south shore of Long Island) until 1966. Beautiful boat, black hull. Not a lot of pictures I can find of them (besides Ned's other Jersey shore thread).

I am saying Ulrichsen based on this picture that was loaned to me by Eric Ulrichsen (Andy Ulrichsen's son) of one of their boats. They boat have the same detail work.


Ulrichsens and Luhrs of that era were almost identical hulls, the most noticeable differences came in some of the cabin details and trim.
Other than the running lights and the ladder to the bridge they could be the same boat.

I have some additional pictures of Luhrs skiffs beyond what I posted on the other thread. do you have any picture you could post and I'll see if I have something that matches.
