Ok PA guys, here is what I was able to dig up. As I read it "NO" we do not need the Jersey Cert. to operate in the river. Jersey will accept a cert from another state, but PA only requires it for people born after Jan 1, 1982. ??? Seems like a loop hole, but to play it safe you can get the PA cert online for $25.

Jersey Info:

I live in another state, do I need a boat safety certificate?

Yes - Out-of-state residents are not exempt from the education requirement listed above; however, the law states that an out-of-State resident who is at least 16 years of age and who will be in this State for less than 90 days may operate a power vessel on the waters of the State of New Jersey if they possess a boat safety certificate issued by their state of residence, or if they possess written proof of successful completion of a boat safety course approved by another state, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators(N.A.S.B.L.A.) or the United States Coast Guard.

Can I operate a power vessel in the State of New Jersey if I possess a current United States Coast Guard operators license?

Yes, a person holding a current United States Coast Guard operator’s(captains) license, who is otherwise required to possess a boat safety certificate, may operate a power vessel on the waters of the State of New Jersey without having completed a boat safety course approved by the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, provided that they have their captains license in their possession while operating.

The operators license can not be converted to a New Jersey boat safety certificate.

The Delaware River is shared so I am not going to bother. My boat is registered in Pa and I only go on the river. I do have a Coast Guard Certificate from about 10 years ago. Maybe I will just keep that in the boat just in case.

Dave M what do you mean by no wake allowed on hopatcong?

George, it sounds like you will be fine.

The water level on the lake is extremely high, over some of the docks. They aren't allowing any wakes to minimize damage. Hopefully this week it will come down. I saw the dam today and there was water pouring over it.

Ok, how many people out there were thinking about being pulled at 22 MPH yesterday?!?!? I had to drive into Philly and I was amazed at how utterly flat the Delaware River was at 3:30 in the afternoon. I think it took my fever to ride up a few more degrees!

It also has me shifting into WakeFest mode. Granted Alex has been on Route Wakefest 2007 since July, but I'm gonna join him in nailing down some sponsors.

And Jeffrey Z, I gotta say your enthusiasm for Wakefest is better than this warm weather! I don't know if everyone else scans all the other topics on the discussion board, but Jeffrey gives a plug to Wakefest all over the place on Wakeworld! Good stuff!

But Wakefest stoke aside, Jeffrey, one thing I'm gonna enjoy just slightly less than Wakefest is the Eagles games on November 25, a surefire win up in Foxborough against the Patriots! I'm gonna be up there for the game, so we should get together to tailgate.

We spent yesterday putting our docs in up at lake Wally, the water was glass flat (one slalom skier came through) but the water temp could not have been much more than 45! Sure made me want to drop the boat in and get a nice healthy case of Hypothermia though! Hopefully this week I will pull the giant out of storage and start the upgrades, shower heater tower speakers and a good bath!

Just a little taste of another project that I have been working on over the winter. I started this back in Nov...

Old     (njskier)      Join Date: Jul 2005       04-23-2007, 12:56 PM Reply   
Yesterday I had about enough yard work by around I splashed the X-star for its maiden voyage. The river was 50 degrees, but absolutely flat! The boat performed well, tried some different speeds, both with ballast and without. Drove a few double-ups just to check out the wake. I'm now ready to pull some riders (you drysuit guys listening?)

I have a family party this saturday, but sunday should be free. Anyone want a pull, let me know.

KG, nice speaker box. Is this the Blastmaster 6000? Who's boat is it for?

Thanks for the offer Dave; I've got one more weekend around the house. The gardens are edged, deck has been pressure washed and stained, so the last thing now is to get the mulch down this weekend.

Another work of art KG, Looks great!

Nice box kev.

50 Degree water is not bad at all, I was in the Atlantic this weekend, 3/5 wetsuit with gloves and booties, no hood.

Doreen checkin in!
Doug, I wear my sunglasses at night too!

JB, you and Alex are the sponsor Kings! Between the both of you with your contacts, I'm sure it will be as great as last year!

There wil be more wakefest updates to share with everyone in the next week or 2. I'm really excited!!

Well, work on wakefest is moving right along. I'm hopeful that it's going to be another good one!
But I'll tell you what...even though I'm pretty much going through the same motions as last year, this
year's planning has been quite a different experience. It seems a little bit of recognition carries
both assets and liabilities. Hooda thunkit.

I believe I'll have the Super Air fully ready to go by the end of this coming weekend. My drysuit will be
ready as well. It's time friends. It's time.

Doreen and I are unsure what to do. Do we go to the May 16 Bart-n-que and then roll the dice on the opt-out
test, or do we play it safe, stay local and burn two nights taking the course? We're so undecided.

Very cool speaker box KG. It's clearly a member of The Blast Master familty, but up-graded for the 2007
model year. With 60 Sylvia getting an entirely new backyard, The Blast Master 5000 now has it's own special
shelf in the new shed! Remember how happy Karen was to see The BM5k move from your house to 60 Sylvia?
Well, Doreen was equally as happy to see it move from inside 60 Sylvia and out into the shed!

If you look in the windows behind KG's new speaker box you can see he has his tower off his boat and
on the floor!

Hey Gavin, have you have any more wakefest talks with Tom at 1st Klas Marine? If he wants to get in the game
and get on the shirt I'll have to know pretty soon.

Eustace: How about your guys at Wakeboard & Ski Boats of PA? Have you spoken to them about wakefest 2007?

My nautique brother Woody: Got that boat ready to go yet? I think you'll be lovin' it in pretty short order.

I recently saw a teaser from the upcoming Sidewayz Gator Boards team video Transgression. It looks
really cool. Ronn is the master.

See everyone real soon. Alex

I have Karen & I signed up for the May 14th/21st boaters course in Paramus, NJ. I figure it's a good way for her to learn some more about boating and I would get a refresher. I may even learn a thing to two!

It's Saturday morning and it's a beautiful day! Sadly, I'm going to be behind my desk at work until 4:00pm.

I recently saw yet ANOTHER teaser for the upcoming Sidewayz Gator Boards team video Transgression,
and for a split second, I'm in it!

Doreen and I have decided to do the right thing and take the boater safety course. We owe it to everyone we
invite onto our boat. We're currently eyeballing Saturday May 19, at the Boater's World retail store on
Route 37 in Toms River. We burn a Saturday taking a class, we go to The Saw Mill afterwards to celebrate, and
that's it. We're good to go forever after. Plus I like shuffling around in Boater's World. I can always find
a couple of things I need.

Any one want/need some 15/32 plywood? If you scroll up to my March 1, posting you'll see how I had to
wrap the back of 60 Sylvia in plywood for the duration of the bulkhead replacement. Now that the new bulkhead
and new shed are in place it's time to take down the plywood and I have absolutley no place to store it.
If anyone wants all of it or some of it, please, give me a shout. Maybe Jim B. could use it to rebuild his
kitchen. Or Pop's Lef could use it to make trick ski dicks. Or maybe Doug could use it to build a tequila cabinet.
Or maybe Kevin could use it to go into Blast Master mass production. Otherwise Doreen may have me build a
second shed for all of my eBay'ed wakeboard gear!

lets gets some 2-4's and build a slider we can place at low tide at bordentown for the wake event! we can panel the sidewalls of the rail with plywood making it real safe. We can drive in in the dirt at low tide and remove it when we are done.

somebody (ie. kevin) back me on this and i'll draw plans of what i was thinking.
Old     (nj_alex)      Join Date: Aug 2002       04-28-2007, 12:52 PM Reply   
I just re-read my last post and it's over thirty minutes old so I can't go back and edit it.

When talking about what to do with the plywood, I meant to suggest that Pops Lef could make trick ski "disks."

A slider in the lagoon at Wakefest? That sounds really cool! But that means someone will have to think through
everything that will possibly be needed, have everything purchased in advance, have all the necessary tools,
have a truck to get everything to the event site, be there by 6:00am to get set-up, baby sit it all day, use it
for a little while, wait 'til 5:00 or 6:00pm to break it down, load it all back into the truck like it was
never there and cart it all back home. AND have back-up plans for every step that could go wrong. If someone's
up for that responsibility, email me. I've been thinking about this and I already have some ideas on the
back burner.

What's up all?
Alex the kitchen is done so I wont need it.
I think I'm gonna put my Sea Ray up for sale next week and start looking for an inboard boat. Nothing fancy mayby like 1998 to 2004 between 13,000 and 21,000. The only problem is most of the boat for sale online are very far away. But I will keep looking.
NICE BOX KG. somehow that sounds wrong.

See you all real soon.

Jim, not sure of the condition or anything but they are GREAT people to deal with, this is where I bought mine, if you are interested call up and ask for Tom (owner) and tell him I sent you. Scroll to the bottom of the used boat, 1998 22' Tige. He is also a monster tower dealer and could do a tower instal for you!

Gavin, That's funny because last night at work I found that boat on and emailed them about that boat. I asked him for more pictures and info. I was thinking a monster tower would look sweet on that boat. Thanks Gavin good looking out.

No problem Jim, if you were looking to go new he has a couple left over 06s that he is blowing out. He is a nice guy to deal with for sure, little bit of a ride for you but worth it for quality dealer!

1st Klas has one of the better service shops in the area too. Had to have the control box replaced on my parents Sea Ray last summer. They were the only ones that knew what they were doing.

Sorry Alex, I've gone over to the dark side. I got a nice deal on a 06 Master Craft X1 and jumped all over it. Before you know it we will have a fleet of Master Crafts on the river. I can't wait to put this baby in the water.

Gavin, I called Tom at Firstklas and he seemed straight forward to deal with. He told me that boat was a trade in from a guy on Barnaget bay and the did a good once over on the boat and replaced a few things because of the salt water. That is a brand new trailer and the interior is in real good shape. He said the boat runs good and he feels it to be a dependable boat. So I'm off next Monday and I plan to take a ride out to see him. Can you email me good driving directions to his place?

Thanks Gavin and Dave M for the advice on that marina.I'm thinking if the boat is decent and I can get it for $14,000 I'll put a monster tower and perfect pass on it and I'm set.

Woody that is a sweet looking boat,good luck with her.

Wow I've missed a TON! And I know I cannot answer or respond to everything that's happened, has been out of control and it's getting worse as we move closer to summer. Hopefully we'll slow down sometime soon.

KG, the tower is looking good.
Woody, sweet looking boat, that was a fast transition!
Jim, it's good to see you active, and good luck with the boat purchase. How's the knee been?
Jeff Zuk, always good to see you checking in. And even Russ is back with us. Very cool.

I'm getting excited to see all of the commotion going on and the talk of getting back on the river. There's just absolutely nothing better than it. I am certainly looking forward to more days where we have 6 boats all rafted up, beers in hand, enjoying good friends company. (sappy I know)

Alex, you have an EAGLE EYE! It's funny you noticed that. I didn't look at anything but the box, but you scanned the entire pic. i don't know if my stepdad could use the ply but will ask him.

Looking at all this talk and the shuffling around to get the boater's safety certificate, Michele and I are happy we took it first thing almost 2.5 yrs ago.

From what I understand, you can get the endorsement on your L's, but you're supposed to carry the cert. card on you at all times while operating a boat. (Dave, remember at Ray's Town you were the only one allowed to drive the houseboat because I only had the endorsement, not my actual cert. card.) But anyway, it seems like you all have it covered.

Hope to see you all soon on the water!

Justin, the Super Sport was sold on sat around 1pm and the X1 was delivered sun at 7pm. It took a lot of phone calls to make it happen like that, but it was worth it.

Scott, try Ebay and just type in wakeboard. Not all the board are used in fact most are new.

Is anybody going riding this weekend? Besides my boat not being legal yet, my father and I are going to Gettysburg,PA this weekend to tour the battlefield. So I'm shooting for next weekend.

If you find something try the house most of the stuff is year old left overs but there are some good deals to be had. I picked up the Obrien Natural last year and that board absolutely RIPS, sadly I only rode it one weekend before the season ended but it ripped, def a good choice imo

Scotty: Go on-line, do some research, go to Craig at SOS with the best prices you can find, tell him you're
part of the New Jersey crew, tell him I sent you, and I'm pretty sure he'll match or beat whatever pricing
you show him. He wants our business.

Jim: Being boat buyers is one of the greatest returns we can offer to wakefest sponsors. I had a chat with
Jim at 1st Klas, and while he thought wakefest is a cool idea, he wasn't sure if New Jersey is really a
market that he should be targeting. Jim, there's going to be a Correct Craft dealer at wakefest, a Malibu dealer,
maybe a Sanger dealer, maybe a Moomba dealer and maybe an MB dealer. (I have no idea about Mastercraft).
I'm sure these guys have used boats for sale and I'm sure they'd love to be talking to a serious potential boat
buyer while at wakefest. Jim, if you're in love with that Tigé at 1st Klas Marine, go for it. But there may
be other nice boats available through wakefest. Or maybe have 1st Klas Marine bring that boat to wakefest for
you to test drive! It's a buyer's market; especially in the boat market, and especially with gas prices
so high.

Dave M: Do you know Ron at San Bar Marina? I've spoken to him several times and he seems like a real good guy.

Jeff Z: Is The Hampton Inn right in Bordentown? Are you going to be stopping-in at 60 Sylvia on Friday again
this year?

Woody: If things work-out just right, I might actually dunk the Super Air in at Bordentown this weekend.
The X-1 looks nice. Congratulations. It would have been cool having another Nautique out there, but
it's just as cool having the ONLY Nautique out there too!

Thanks for the inquiries, but I think I've found a taker for all of my 15/32" plywood. I have quite a stack
of cinder blocks to get rid of too. The same guy said he'll take those too. Anyone here need some cinder blocks?

Alex, who is the Sanger dealer? I only knew of one semi local (in NY), if that is them I am guessing you have been speaking with Charlie, if that is the case tell him you know me and to bring a boat down for the day! I also talked with Tom at 1st Klas last week about wakefest, he is trying to make it work but is hard as that will be one of his busiest weekends for sales. I'll stay after him though!

Alex, Dave W sent me some links to all the master craft dealers around and I also have been on hear, and iboats,and boattrader for a few weeks now. Most of the boats these dealers have are out of my price range.
Monday I am takeing the ride out to1stklas to look at that Tige. I hope it's worth that long ride. If it looks good I will take it for a ride and see what happens from there.

It looks as if my boat will be sold this weekend. Leaving me with nothing. Thats a sad feeling in a way. My boat will be missed as she as created many unforgetable moments with my 2 daughters. That boat is like a family member to me.

Today is an emotional day in alot of ways. I sold my boat to Shawn, a friend of pops Lef. I'm happy because I'm now looking for a boat just a little bit bigger because my daughters are growing and want to bring more friends on board.And I'm stoked to buy and inboard.
As I pulled away from the boat ramp without my boat I actually got a little tear in my eyes because the whole ride home I recalled alot of great times I had on that boat with my family. Besides the fact that I never once had a problem with that boat. It served me well and I tip my hat to her.
Hopefully we will get to see Shawn on the water with his new boat. I hope she treats him as well as she treated me.

Hey Jeff Zuko, how many days til that wakefest thing?

Jim, Glad to hear everything went well for you and the new owner of the 'ray. Feel good about the fact it went to a good home to someone who will take care of her and treat her right!
Now you can look forward to your next towboat. Does this mean we'll be seeing more of you and the fam. on the Delaware river this year? (Hope so.) :-)

Jeff Z. and Kelly Lee, there's a good chance I'll have the X-star out on the river friday before wakefest for some pulls.

Alright people...
There's some important information floating around our there that has been thus far not shared.

First, how was riding on Saturday?

Inquiring minds want to know!

"Crazy north Jersey guys" ?? Hey! I resemble that remark!

I'd review Saturday's first dip and the subsequent Drinko, but I don't have enough time. I have to
get to work.

I visited both hotels, told them we will have some out-of-towners that need a room while attending wakefest, can they get a discount when booking a room. Both places are offering a 10% discount if anyone mentions NJ Wakefest.

Jim, good luck today. Give us updates as they happen! If you need anything, let me know.
At SOS I picked-up a new Watson. Craig hooked me up with a good deal. Can't wait to try it out!

Saturday Fist Dip / Drinko de Mayo

Well I think the first dip was a grand success! No problems, everyone jsut warming pun intended with that 57* water...Alex and Doug both on new boards so they were feeling that out. Karen got some sun...Brian and I were jsut chilling doin video and pics.

Water was chilly though, 57*-60*, and although 60 is what the water is in late June in still felt very cold even with the wetsuits.

Drinko de Mayo was great. Good to see everyone together having fun!

Was a very good day!

Very Jealous of you folks, I can't even get my brothers to help put in the docks....City slickers

Hopefully I'll have my first pull on the 12th, keeping my fingers crossed.

Great to see you guys are going out already. I need warmer water. Our boat is still in storage. From the news it looks to be getting warmer so that should give me some motivation. I saw on channel 6 new today the NJ Police was out in force inspecting boats. I guess they are going to be enforcing the boating certificate.

Yeah George I just saw that too.......checking mostly fishermen but not just for their limit but their safety equipment as well. Everybody make sure you have what you need to comply (fire ext., throwable cushion, horn or whistle, flares that are within date, enough life jackets for each person on board, etc.) Okay, enough playing water cop, you get the idea.

Thanks Dave...let us know if you have anything else going on. When we do the next mailing, we'll be sure to include the info. I'm glad you posted it.

It's official. I am now the proud owner of a 1998 TIGE PRE22IWT with the Tapps wake plate system. A little elbow grease so miner repair and tune up and she is ready. Oh and I have to install the new Monster Tower I bought for her as well. I am so excited. First I have a couple house projects to tend to, the the boat. I'm thinking 2nd week of June I'll be ready.

Gavin thanks for all you info and insight.

Huge wake plate enhanced congrats Jim. Is your new baby direct drive or v-drive? You're going to be able
to focus on house projects with a new wakeboard boat parked in your driveway? Good luck! And like woody
said, post-up some pictures!

Jim, glad it worked out! Welcome to the Tige family, and check out there is some great info over there and people are always willing to help out fellow owners! Should look sweet with the monster tower on there as well. So how bad and how long of a drive was it? I was guessing 2 hours 45 minutes, how close was I ?

Dave M, I don't know exact but COLD, usually we hit mid to high 50s by memorial day. I was up two weeks ago putting our docks in and I could only keep my hands in the water a minute or two before they went numb! Thank god for neo waders!!! Dave W was describing to me where your slip is, you are over by where White Beauty used to be right? If you are up for Memorial Day weekend we should get together. We ride every morning up there by the nature preserve, usually out by 7.

JB... Cinco de Drinko... we rode in 76 degree water warm Mexico weather. Ate at Jessie's Cantina, then went to Guzman's to watch the De la Hoya fight...

Aloha - Gringo!

Hope it is ok to go on the NJ site... someday I will ride out there (when it is warm)

Hey, what's going on everyone. It's been a while since I checked what's happening. Needless to say everyone got new boats. I got lucky and was sent a notice for jury duty for tomorrow and Thursday. I called and don't have to report tomorrow, nice. One more day of jury duty, and hopefully I don't have to report Thursday either. Does anyone have any jury duty horror stories you want to share?

Hi Joe!
Welcome to the New Jersey Riders thread!!
I'm Alex's fiancé. Great job on the designs....we recieved rave reviews on what you presented so far. We're getting pretty pumped up about our little gathering. Nice of you to stop in and say hello!

Alright! It's Joe Pearson checking-in! Friends, Joe is the So Cal artist who's working-on the designs for
this year's wakefest t-shirts. As Doreen mentioned Joe, everyone's pretty psyched about the concepts
you've come-up with. I'll be in touch soon and we can hammer-out some more of the details.

What's up Justin H. Good to have you checkin' in.
