If I was a real boater I would have bought the nifty T-shirt I saw down in a marina shop on the Suwanee River in Florida.
It read, "Talk Nautical to Me, Baby!"
The only nautical terms I know were the ones learned in the Marine Corps..."port, starboard, head," etc.
For the serious boater the state has launched an interactive website with all kinds of scoop from rules and regs to where to find pump-out stations.
Go to www.njboating.org and take a look.
