BOBBY II Collision:
Sixty-four years ago, on Saturday morning, April 23, 1955, the "BOBBY II" left her slip at the Belmar Marine Basin and headed out for a day of Cod fishing. Captain David Shinn was at the helm, son Alvin Shinn was the mate, and 57 passengers got their fishing gear ready. After a day of fishing at the Mud Hole, Captain Shinn blew three whistles,
started the engines and began the journey home in a dense fog. A short time later, he noticed the bow of a large vessel looming out of the fog and heading directly for his boat. He quickly put both engines full speed astern, but despite his efforts, the freighter "PRESIDENT BUCHANAN" rammed the "BOBBY II". The crash sheared off thirteen feet
of the bow of the "BOBBY II" and tossed three passengers into the forty-eight degree seawater. Click here to read the full story and see a few pictures of the "BOBBY II".
Sandy Hook, NJ Lighthouse:
Sandy Hook Lighthouse – Did you know that it is the oldest, original structure still functioning as a navigational beacon in the United States?
Did you also know that it is the first lighthouse in the country to be lit by electric lamps?
The Sandy Hook Lighthouse was first lit on June 11, 1764 and in 1899, became the first lighthouse in the country to be lit by electric lamps. It's silhouette and warm beam of light has been a familiar sight to anglers, mariners and travelers passing in and out of New York Harbor for over 250 years.
The lighthouse is now part of the Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook, NJ so stop by for a visit the next time you're in the area.
The Sandy Hook Lighthouse reopened to the public Sunday, June 24, 2018 after a nine-month renovation that refurbished the interior and exterior of the 254-year-old beacon. It is now open daily to the public with free half hour tower tours running from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tour groups are kept small due to space
constraints inside the tower and tour patrons must be at least 4 feet tall to ascend the tower.
