Group Effort and hard work: The winter storm that blew by the LBI area recently dislodged a U.S. Coast Guard buoy from its station in advance of washing it ashore on 16th Avenue in Barnegat Light. The steel gentle buoy remained there until eventually the early morning of Jan. 25, when Barnegat Light-weight and Prolonged Beach Township personnel made use of a front-conclusion loader to move it to the Coast Guard station just a couple of blocks absent. Adam Murray, commanding officer of the station, explained the buoy was moored there and was envisioned to be picked up by a semitruck at a afterwards time. A new buoy was established in Barnegat Inlet by a crew from the Philly-based mostly Buoy Tender William Tate on Jan. 24. The removal of the more mature buoy from the beach front was built less complicated with help from Barnegat Gentle and township staff and devices. The Coast Guard thanks them for their attempts.
