Introducing "The Barnegat Bullet"

We use the word "launched" a lot in marketing. But in this case, it's very literal.

Ann Marie's father, Sam, a woodworking genius just launched the Barnegat Bullet, a custom 18-foot mahogany runabout that he designed and built himself. This is actually his third boat, the first two being a 30-foot runabout with a fuel injected 454 and 43-foot trawler with twin 150 hp Cummins diesels. And while he's keeping the original fleet, the Bullet is for sale.

Unique and proven 4-ply laminated construction with epoxy and varnish finish, the new 4-cylinder 130 hp, freshwater cooled Mercruiser. This thing was all hand built on the Beaver Damn Creek. It's essentially a smaller version of a runabout with a shallow draft, specifically made for whipping around Barnegat Bay. Anyone want a classy ride, we'll put you in touch with him.
