Hate to see the old timers go. At least it will remain in good hands.

Hey Coyote do you remember the launch on Elizabeth that was called Snug Harbor? A nice old couple used to own it way back when. They would sometimes let us use a boat without paying if we promised to pay them next time.

I always felt sorry for them. Many times I would go there to launch and the piers and such were under water from flooding. I am glad they stayed in business and used to stop there a lot. Good luck to them.
