Since 1984 New Jersey Friends of Clearwater's Environmental Sail Program (ESP) gave free sail boat rides in a historical, 26 foot Tuckerton River Sailing Garvey. After 28 years on the water this boat was retired and is now on display at Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen's Museum, Tuckerton, New Jersey. Planning, construction, launch, and sailing of its replacement are all presented as a photo album with captions and narrative. Thirty eight photos, one drawing.
