Michael “Rusty” Carroll
Dock Master  SRSSA/FOBH

Rusty has a deep respect for the ocean and the Shark River estuary, and takes an active role in their stewardship. He has said that he always discovers something new whenever he comes to the water. 

He is an avid kayaker and snorkeler,  and is often seen cleaning litter while exploring.  He is very happy to find like-minded people who also care about the health of the Shark River Basin.  Rusty and his family are one of the few people who have been granted Lifetime Member of the FOBH. As a parent of one of our students who attended many of our summer programs a few years ago, he really enjoys helping other parents and children improve their knowledge of sailing, and of nature, and of the marine environment. He has served as Dock Master, the Marine Science Head Instructor, Discovery Camp Leader, and continues to assist our programs.

As Dockmaster, he is the managing director of facility operations, the supervisor of any volunteer efforts, and the liaison to local governments. You will often find Rusty at our locations, making repairs to boats or the facilities, if you stop by, say hello.
