GETTING OUT ON THE WATER is popular and a great way to relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings. Easy ways to spend time afloat include renting a personal watercraft for an hour, or fishing aboard a party or charter boat. Making the leap to boat ownership can be expensive, and a large time commitment. Recently a new boating option has surfaced–the boat club. This new type of boating experience includes scheduled usage of boats that are new or nearly so, but without the hassle of maintenance or the expense of purchasing and storing them. For a membership fee plus an annual cost, the club cleans, maintains, and stores the boats, and has them ready when you arrive for your time on the water. Three boat clubs operate in our immediate area: Carefree Boat Club in Avalon, Freedom Boat Club in Somers Point and Cape May, and the Jet Drive Boat & Jet Ski Club in Ocean City. If you’re interested in boating but don’t want the commitment of owning, maintaining, and storing your own boat, a boat club may be the right choice for you.
INTEREST RATES have increased in response to inflation reports and anticipated Federal Reserve Bank rate hikes. 30-year conforming fixed-rate mortgages reached 3.875% earlier this week, with 15-year conforming rates slightly less. Note: If you’re buying a shore home, vacation rental rates have increased noticeably in the past couple of years. Renting your shore property–even for a week or two–can more than cover the slight increase in mortgage interest expense!
BEHR BREWING has opened its doors on Seashore Road in Erma. The new craft brewery is currently featuring seven beers in their tasting room, and is currently open Friday & Saturday.

BRIDGE TESTING: The Townsend’s Inlet Bridge, linking Avalon with Sea Isle City, will undergo testing of its bascule (drawbridge) span on March 3rd. The testing of the bridge will result in closures to automobile and marine traffic for intervals lasting about 15 minutes over the course of several hours. The Grassy Sound Bridge, linking Stone Harbor with Wildwood, was scheduled to be tested earlier this week.
