One of the least known of US government agencies is also the oldest!
In 1807, Thomas Jefferson signed a law authorizing a survey of the U.S. coast, leading to the establishment of the U.S. Coast Survey – the predecessor of NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Its mandate was to survey the coast and inlets of our navigable waterways for safe navigation.

Picture this; a beautiful, one owner home, with a deepwater dock, (5 feet at extreme low tides and 10 feet at high tide), and calm water out in front at all times! For those of you looking for a piece of paradise, here it is!
During every season there is activity happening in the fresh water creek which passes right by this beautiful home.
In the spring months of April and May, the yellow perch fishing is phenomenal and thousands of spawning herring arrive. At the same time, huge striped bass feed on the herring while getting ready to spawn. The largemouth bass create habitats right under your dock and at the edges of the creek.
Sounds like paradise to me! To someone who is a boater, and a fisherman, with a love of the outdoors; this is a superb place to live.

One had to be 17 to enlist in the military. While it is well known that people younger than 17 served in WWII (& other wars), we'll use 17 as a base...
The war ended in 1945 & this is 2016. That means the YOUNGEST surviving WWII veteran is 88. Keep that in mind when you watch the video. Quite a few do not look their age.
Something I'm sure you'll enjoy.

"There was a time when clubs had to do nothing to succeed,”he says. “Times have changed, yet club leadership hasn’t adjusted to the reality that the days of people walking up and looking to join an organization are gone. A club’s leadership may be highly successful in their personal careers, but they are likely making club decisions as a group that they’d never make in their own businesses or lines of work.”
So why are some boat clubs more successful at building member value than others? In this special report, we’ll tell you more about how Graves suggests that some club challenges can be met as well as about how specific clubs have nurtured growth — some even have waiting lists.
In what promises to be a spectacular opening to the 2016 Hudson River boating season, Liberty Landing Marina will host three days of AC45F foiling catamaran racing like nothing that has been seen before.
