Here is information in case you'd care to enjoy a sail on the two-masted oyster schooner, A. J. Meerwald.  Two friends and I sailed around the Island off Burlington City this past Tuesday and it was like living in a fantasy - anyone remember Adventures in Paradise with Troy Donahue?

Give it a try!
