Where was that? I used to patrol the Delaware from the Cape to Trenton. There was one boat that always outran us, based out of Rancocas Creek. A 19' canary yellow flatbottom named "Screaming Yellow Zonker". Wasn't hard to outrun us, though. The 40' and 41' twin diesel boats we ran had top speeds around 28 kts.

You patrolled with boats that big as a sheriff, or was that military?

This place is full of performance boats. We stayed at the Chesapeake in and the boats were non stop day and night.

I knew where the nuke plant was, I was talking about the Cat.

Were you stationed out of Cape May? We anchored there last night and could hear the guys training late into the night and right back at it early this morning.

Cape May is where the USCG has their boot camp. Ah found memories I could share of that place. Back in my time they had a small boat station out of there also!

I was out of Gloucester City. Running 40' and 41' small boats '75 - '77. Brought the 41' boats from Baltimore through the C&D when they were first built. Later, Chief Engineer on one of the 65' Harbor Tugs. ('81 - '84) Spent a lot of time @ Cape May. We took the tug down to break ice in the canal in the winter. The station moved across the River to Philly in 1988.

Cool pictures, we are now in Wildwood and just got done riding bikes on the boardwalk. Interesting place.
