Rusty has remarked that he always discovers something whenever he comes to the water. He has a deep respect, and takes an active stewardship of the ocean and the Shark River estuary.  

He is an avid kayaker and snorkeler,  and is regularly seen cleaning litter while exploring.  He takes great delight to find people who also cares about the health of the Shark River Basin.  Rusty and his family are one of the few people who have been granted a Lifetime Member of the FOBH/SRSSA. 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 the Marine Science Head Instructor and continues to assist our programs.


As Dockmaster he is the liaison to local government and work's diligently on all maintenance challenges, both on boats and shore side, including manage members and volunteers regarding maintenance and repair activities. You will often find Rusty at our locations, making repairs to boats or the facilities, if you stop by insure you say hello.
