Bullet 130 Shootout Celebrates Past, Points To The Future

All but gone from the mainstream go-fast powerboat world, Bullet Boats V-bottoms from 13 to 22 feet long—well known in the Northeast in the 1980s and 1990s—remain near and dear to speedonthewater.com contributing photographer’s Tim Sharkey’s heart. The New Jersey-based shooter’s experience with the company goes back to its humble beginnings, and a 13-foot Bullet was his first boat. Sharkey’s cousin, Patrick Conaghan, worked with Bullet Boats, Inc., designer and founder Thomas DeAngelis of Seaside Park. Sharkey eventually joined them and would become even more involved in the years that followed. READ MORE...

3rd Annual Joe Sgro Memorial Run Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2020/9/3rd-annual-joe-sgro-memorial-run-photos Story by Matt Trulio

SpeedontheWater.com

With the exception of Joe Sgro’s family members, no one was more devastated by his loss than his longtime friend Joe Cibellis of New York. Sgro, the former president of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats, was 63 years old when he died in late 2017 from injuries sustained during a poker run to Key West, Fla. The soft-spoken character and his buddy Cibellis were tight on and off the water. They even set an Around Long Island, N.Y., together in an Outerlimits SV 43 sportboat in 2011.  READ MORE......

2019 9th Annual Arcuri for S.U.D.S Fundraiser Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2019/9/2019-9th-annual-arcuri-for-s-u-d-s-fundraiser-photos The 9th Annual Fundraiser Arcuri for SUDS - Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba was another success! Despite the growth of the event over the years the event needed a larger location to accommodate it. With the new challenges of changing the venue Wehrlen Bros Marina came through and fit the bill quite nicely.  A 9000 square foot tent had been installed just 3 days prior and was tested on Friday with strong Northeasterly winds and heavy rain coming from the outer bands of Hurricane Dorian. By Saturday morning the weather turned for the better with temps in the mid to upper 70's with a mix of sun and clouds. Perfect day for the Fundraiser and Powerboat Rides.

Each year the organizers tweak things and make it all that much better, but with having a new location most of the event had all new plans.  All in all everything worked out great !

Lunch and Dinner Buffets were once again delicious and plentyful.

Nick Acuri, Ray Malaspina , Dave Magliaro and their Team of Volunteers once again did an amazing job with this event.

Performances by Chris Bergamo, Emcee - Vince & The Blues Collar Band,

Monmouth County Police & Fire Pipe and Drums - Street Hassle and the Brass Balls kept everyone well entertained.

If you want to be a part of this great event next year, you can email arcuri4suds@gmail.com or call/text Laura at (908) 399-8231

1000 Islands Charity Poker Run Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2019/7/1000-islands-charity-poker-run-photos Story by Matt Trulio of Speedonthewater.com

By all accounts, last Saturday’s third annual 1,000 Charity Poker Run in Clayton, N.Y. experienced an uncommonly miserable mix of heat and humidity. At the first-time lunch stop in Alexandria Bay, the 767 participants from 119 boats went through more than 2,000 bottles of water handed out by members of the local Rotary Club. Beating the heat was a legitimate concern throughout the day. Read more ....

2019 ERIE POKER RUN PHOTOS https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2019/6/2019-erie-poker-run-photos It's been a few years since I have shot the Erie Poker Run, so when Anthony Scioli said to me that he had a second helicopter and would like to hire me to shoot the event in addition to Jeff Helmcamp and Videographer Zoltan Orban , it was a no-brainer as long as my daughter's graduation got postponed to the following Monday. 

Anthony had us paired up into two teams so that we had both Still Photography and Video being taken from both choppers to capture as much action as possible. It was a first time flying for Zoltan, so it worked out great that I flew with him for the event. The pilot and I went over pre-flight instructions with him to be sure he was well informed on what to do and not to do while in the air. The excitement just watching his reactions to flying was great. He was so excited with the footage he was capturing as I would setup the shots with the pilot.

This was the first time in 5 years Erie the event had incredible conditions for both boating along with capturing stills and video.

The Poker Run certainly did not disappoint. The coverage that came away from this event will be around for some time. I am sure we all look forward to the videos that will come from it by Anthony and Zoltan.

I would like to thank Anthony Scioli of Elite Poker Runs, Brand X Performance Marine, Brand X Brokerage and Sales, Chef Mike's ABGEmpire Landscaping Snow and Construction Services,  and FDR Hitches for their support through their sponsorships for Sharkey-Images.  Collectively they made it happen to get me back to shooting this distant event.

Given the Offshore Powerboat Association’s ongoing, high-profile collaboration with Powerboat P1 in producing the six-stop American Power Boat Association Offshore Championship Series, it’s easy to forget that OPA still has four races of its own. And the Point Pleasant Beach Grand Prix—the first of those OPA-exclusive contests—happened last weekend at the historic New Jersey Shore venue.  READ MORE...

Another Sad Loss to the Jersey Shore https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2019/2/another-sad-loss-to-the-jersey-shore News broke today that the annual event of Shore Dreams For Kids will no longer be happening as the two key directors have chosen to resign and close it down.

I unfortunately can name about a half a dozen friends that have passed away in recent years that have volunteered for this event, and to learn this event will no longer happen, it feels like another loss all over again for the Jersey Shore. 

Not that there is any blame for the closing down of the event, it is simply amazing that the group managed the event for as long as they have because it was no easy task and kudos to all that supported it.

For all that made it happen throughout the years, congratulations on the success of the event.

The event will be missed as our friends/volunteers that are no longer with us.

As the saying goes, "all good things come to an end".  As well as "only the good die young".

Wonderful memories will be cherished forever.

2019 A NEED WE FEED CASINO NIGHT PHOTOS https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2019/1/2019-a-need-we-feed-casino-night-photos Congratulations for another successful fundraiser for A Need We Feed !

Hosting Casino Night was Aqua Blu restaurant on Highway 37 E Toms River, NJ.

Andy Chase of 105.7 The Hawk  was present with giveaways along with entertainment by Ned Ryerson Band.

With approximately two hundred people in attendance the casino tables were full  with people earning winnings for increased chances at the gift baskets provided by the amazing sponsors..

This charitable cause is amazing with bringing warm meals around the holidays to Veterans and others in need of a meal .

A Need We Feed could not do what they do without the amazing sponsors and all of the volunteers that show up to make the meals and deliver them.

Thank you all that came out on Sunday to support the Casino Night Fundraiser.

Jan 1st, 2019 Sharkey Resigns from NJPBC https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2019/1/jan-1st-2019-sharkey-resigns-from-njpbc Moving On in 2019

Many people are aware that I got my start in photography 15 years ago with the  NJ Performance Powerboat Club.

I am forever grateful for the opportunity to serve as their "Official Club Photographer" for all of those years since.

Many great friendships and memories have been made over that period of time,  I will never forget.

For the 2019 Season,  I feel the need to allow another photographer the opportunity that I have been provided over all these years and move on to focusing on other projects.

Below is my letter with plenty of notification to allow time to plan for the upcoming season.

I wish everyone all the best in their future events.

Thank you.

This was not created as a traditional memorial where it would have been all photos of Joe himself, but what is included is as much content I could possibly gather in such a short time frame of everyone that he surrounded himself with.  If I missed someone which I am sure there are several, I apologize in advance. I did the best I could for so little time...

2018 Arcuri For SUDS Fundraiser Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2018/9/2018-arcuri-for-suds-fundraiser-photos Photos from the  Arcuri For SUDS fundraiser are now uploaded.

It was such an unbelievable day this year !

Weather could not have been any better for this event and all else fell right into place.

Already spoke with a new powerboat club organizer and suggested to make his club's final event of the season be to attend Arcuri for SUDS and provide boat rides. He was very receptive and hopefully we can have many more boats attend to make it easier on everyone.

And the best news I have heard is that it appears they may have broken last year's record in fundraising !

Congrats to everyone involved !

SPBC-Making Performance Boating Great Again https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2018/9/spbc-making-performance-boating-great-again Spartan Power Boat Club pulls off their first successful Fun Run at the Barnegat Bay Marina in Brick, NJ.

The newly formed Spartan Power Boat Club was joined with 35 + performance boats for their first Annual Fun Run on Labor Day Weekend.

Initially scheduled for Friday as to not interfere with participant's weekend plans over the weekend had to be rescheduled for Sunday due weather conditions.

As it turned out, Del Flores the mastermind behind forming the new club had many more attend then expected. Realizing the main obstacle now was where to put so many boats at the Joey Harrison's River House in Forked River lunch stop.

As departure left the marina precisely on time at 10:30 AM, the boats shortly arrived at the Joey Harrison's River House approximately 11:30 AM.

Del Flores covered in his announcement at the Driver's Meeting that everyone needed to be on their best behavior while running their boats safely in the Run and that they needed to be patient when it comes to the docking.  Needless to say, the limited docking at Joey Harrison's River House filled up quickly but it was managed very well and organized. The smaller of the boats were squeezed in to the launching well where not even one larger boat would have fit it in. South Winds Marina next door was kind enough to accept the overflow of boats and all were docked safely and ready for a nice relaxing lunch at Joey Harrison's River House.

On the return trip back to Barnegat Bay Marina, a BBQ had been provided by Shore Points Catering of Pt Pleasant Beach.

Food, Beverages and DJ Entertainment were all sponsored by Barnegat Bay Marina.

To add a little bit of Fun to the Run, Poker Hands were dealt at the end of the day. It was a non-mandatory buy-in of $50 per boat to purchase a hand of cards. Prizes were awarded out to 1st Jeff Ackerman ,2nd Tom Tallman & 3rd Mike McKeon for the best hands. A portion of the proceeds went to a Cancer Treatment Center in which Barnegat Bay Marina is going to match the proceeds raised for the charity.

In addition to the winning prizes, Barnegat Bay Marina provided Fuel Discount Cards to all three winners.

All the way around, this brand new marina in the process of being restored since being destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and a newly formed Spartan Power Boat Club is simply making everything great again!

Stayed tuned, as more exciting things will be coming from both the marina and the power boat club in the near future.

As mentioned at the Drivers Meeting, Saturday Sept 15th 2PM Arcuri For S.U.D.S.  Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba Fundrasier  are still looking for several boats to provide a few boat rides for the disabled veterans on the Metededconk River in Brick, NJ.  See their Facebook page for more information on the event or watch this video of this amazing organization.

ALL PHOTOS HAVE BEEN UPLOADED.

 

I have reserved about 30+ images and sent them off to Ray Lee of Speedboat Magazine for publishing. Full coverage to appear in the September 2018 Print Issue of Speedboat Magazine..

Due to the nature of a Print Magazine, I will not be able to make those images available until the magazine is made available to the public.

All images sent to SpeedontheWater.com Magazine are available being as that is a Digital Magazine and is typically already published.

Anyone that is interested in preserving a Featured story or Magazine Cover of them, I produce them with many options available from Acrylic Laminated Prints, Wood Plaques, Glass & Metal.  See examples of these Custom Products : CLICK HERE.

5,300+ photos were shot during this event with coverage starting on Thursday morning at 9AM touring the Village of Clayton and the Antique Boat Museum and shot everything I passed along the way. If you were unable to attend this year, please feel free to browse those galleries and I am sure you will not want to miss it next year.

This event proved to be the "must do event" in the North East. Participants came in from all over the country including as far away as California and Washington to attend the event for a worthy cause.

The support the Make-A-Wish Foundation received at this event was incredible and I thank everyone that helped make that happenand even granting a wish that night.

Sharkey-Images would like to take this time to thank all of our generous sponsors for supporting us each year.

Special thanks to Mike Jurusz owner of Chef Mike's ABG , our new sponsor Empire Landscaping & Snow Services for their support for a private photo shoot in the picturesque 1000 Islands.

The 1000 Islands Charity Run in Clayton, NY was a new event for us this year and with the outpouring of positive responses from the Board of Directors and participants I have already been asked to cover this event next year . 

Special thanks to Courtney Rutherford of TAG Mechanical for his support along with Brand X Performance Marine, Chef Mike's ABG, Empire Landscaping & Snow ServicesSunsation Powerboats & Visual Imagination.

In addition, I would like to thank Publisher of Speedboat Magazine Ray Lee and professional Videographer & Photographer Todd Taylor for joining me on this event, as there was so much to cover throughout the entire 3 days, that me alone would not have been able to capture all it. Between the 3 of us we caught a lot of special memories for the Make A Wish Kids and the participants in the event. Looking forward to working with you on future events when possible.

Thank you Matt Trulio of SpeedontheWater.com Magazine for the amazing words you put together to describe the events happening, especially most in real time reporting. Much appreciation for all of your promotion for the event and Sharkey-Images.

A special thanks to Nolan Ferris and the entire Board of Directors who have been so instrumental in making this event the very best it can be and are looking to make even more improvements for next year.

Thank you all for attending and being so generous for the cause.

VIDEO: How to Place a Photo Order https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2018/7/video-how-to-place-a-photo-order A short video of instructions and the steps it takes to place a photo order at TimSharkey.com. 

There was an update last summer that revamped the entire Shopping experience on our site.  There are some key things that get pointed out in the video and what the customer should look for. 

Unfortunately the developers that revamped this E-commerce portion of the site must feel everyone today must know to look for a tiny arrow for a drop-down menu and expect to find a scrolling bar in an area that is not visible .  

We hope after viewing this instructional video you will have a much better understanding of how it works and in the end, have a better shopping experience.

If the video moves too fast for you, all instructions may be found here: http://www.timsharkey.com/how_to_place_an_order

NJPBC Atlantic City Rally Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2018/6/njpbc-atlantic-city-rally-photos Written by Eric Colby for www.PokerRunsAmerica.com

The New Jersey Powerboat Club held its annual Powerboat Rally to Atlantic City on Friday and the event had solid numbers and a long-awaited break in the weather.

“It was the first nice weekend we’ve had,” said NJPC president Dave Patnaude. “Spring has finally sprung.”

This year’s event had 30 boats and offered the fleet challenging conditions in the open ocean and smoother water on the inside. “Going back 20 years, the largest group was the offshore boats and now the 35 and 55-mph groups are growing,” said Patnaude.

The participants rode in a variety of boats including a 28’ Checkmate with twin Mercury Racing outboards, Bob Christie’s 34’ MTI catamaran powered by twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboards plus a Doug Wright cat with the same engines.

There were a number of Monterey cruisers including  READ MORE...

 

The weekend of events was dedicated in the Memory of Anthony Sauta whom passed away late last year. He may not have been there physically, but many know he was there in spirit... 

The below image was caught as the crew of Mark Munro were HIGH FIVING  themselves aboard the Doug Wright Catamaran powered by twin Mercury 400R outboards. The SELF HIGH FIVING was a known thing Anthony Sauta would do quite often when something cool happened to him.  

Passing across the bow of this boat at speed and managing to capture everyone's hands together at the same time and being center with the boat while everyone was looking into my lens was something I do not believe I did on my own. Anthony had to have helped in some way to make that all fall into place...

Sharkey's 2018 Event Schedule https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2018/6/sharkeys-2018-event-schedule 2018 Schedule is finalized and it is going to be a splash of a Season !!!

Updated June 4th, 2018

150801E 712150801E 7122015 MIKE FIORE MEMORIAL RUN

Sharkey-Images would like to take this time to thank all of our generous sponsors for supporting us each year.

Special thanks to Mike Jurusz owner of Chef Mike's ABG who has really stepped up his support over the last year.

We welcome our new sponsor Empire Landscaping & Snow Services for their support for a photo shoot in the picturesque 1000 Islands, Clayton, NY.

A new event for us this year is the 1000 Islands Charity Run in Clayton, NY.  An event in it's 2nd year and already has over 100 boats registered and many sponsors willing to support the photography for this event. Thanks to Courtney Rutherford of TAG Mechanical for his support along with Brand X Performance Marine, Chef Mike's ABG, Empire Landscaping & Snow ServicesSunsation Powerboats & Visual Imagination.

This is proving to be the "must do event" in the North East. Boats are coming in from all over the country to attend the event for a worthy cause.

A special thanks to Nolan Ferris and the entire Board of Directors who have been so instrumental in making this event the very best it can be.

New event added this year is the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital Fun Run Fundraiser in New Rochelle, NY Aug 1st.

As usual the Poker Run Season kicks off for NJ with the NJPBC Atlantic City Rally on June 15th followed up by the Operation Shore Fun for Veterans.

We have a real variety of events to cover this year from Boat Races, Poker Runs, Fundraisers, Special Needs Boat Rides as well as Veteran's Events.

PLEASE SEE THE LIST OF EVENTS BELOW or CLICK HERE 

Upon request, images will be submitted to SpeedontheWater.com  and  Poker Runs America for publication. 

Stay tuned, it's going to be one BIG photographic season!!!

June 4th Schedule Update: Photo shoots with David & Nicole Weschler with their 52' Outerlimits "Diggin It" have been been moved to the 1000 Islands in July.

With another commitment for the OPA Ocean City Race for Poker Runs America Magazine coming through for the same weekend as Erie's scheduled date, it was simply going to be way too much traveling in such a short period of time. To shoot on Friday and get on the road Saturday morning to head to Maryland was just not going to be possible. In addition, both owners will only be aboard the boat in the 1000 Islands. After much discussion, it has been decided to do all the shoots in the 1000 Islands prior to the 1000 Islands Charity Event. 

Removing the June and August dates frees up additional time I can spend in the 1000 Islands and if anyone else is arriving early for the Charity Run in the 1000 Islands and want to have a shoot done feel free to contact me. 

Additional date change is the Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba Fundraiser. New date is September 15th, 2018 

Next event NJPBC June 15th. Get signed up now before registration closes ... www.njpbc.com

2018 OPA Pt Pleasant Beach Grand Prix https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2018/5/2018-opa-pt-pleasant-beach-grand-prix  

Written by Johnny Saris of SpeedontheWater.com

Rough water and unseasonable humidity greeted the 30-boat fleet in the first race of the Offshore Powerboat Association yesterday in Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., The Atlantic Ocean dished up solid four- to six-foot seas that made for plenty of big-air and fan friendly action.

Starting at noon, the first race of the day included Classes 5, 6 and 7. The Class 5 race was heated right from the beginning with RUFSTRCisco and Coastal Boat Sales going at it. RUFSTR edged out a lead over Cisco by the third lap and never looked back. Coastal Boat Salesmade a move on Cisco and were charging hard trying to catch RUFSTR but ran out of race.

Unfortunately, a GPS reading error disqualified Coastal Boat Sales, putting Cisco in second place.

“It was a great way to return to racing” said RUFSTR driver EJ Salamone. “We took a year off and I really missed it.”

The Class 6 race was also very tight from the green flag. Knot Guilty, with Rob and Ray Murk onboard. took immediate charge pulling out a lead over Smith Brothers and Liquid Addiction.

But slowly but surely, Smith Brothers started to gain ground on them, making their move with just a few laps to go.

“The boat ran great,” said Rich Smith, throttleman of Smith Brothers Racing. “I knew it had it in it, I just wanted to choose the right moment to make a move. We ran pretty easy the first few laps getting our wits about us. All in all, it felt great.”

Without question, Class 7 had the toughest time with the water conditions on course, but still delivered some seriously tight action. The seven-boat boat field put on an aerial show for the fans lining the beach and boardwalk.  READ MORE ....

Well courtesy of Coty MarineSunsation Powerboats and Miss Geico Racing we are able to provide you over 200 images to have a look around on what's new for 2018.

First thing I noticed since the last time I shot this event which dates back to 2015 is the entire AC Convention Center is back to being used at max capacity. 

This is sure a good sign that things are coming back in a big way... 

I am optimistic that the economy is bouncing back for the upcoming years.

Enjoy the show....

In Memory of Anthony Sauta https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/12/in-memory-of-anthony-sauta Just hours ago I learned that my long time friend Anthony Sauta had suddenly passed away.

The man was simply just one of "The Good Guys". 

He was one that was always there for me and anyone else. 

Just weeks ago we had a very long talk. He spoke of his mom passing and how she lived her life 100 mph up until the day she had passed. 

We both seem to agree, that is the way to live because there is no guarantee that we will live to see tomorrow.

I told him how much I was impressed with how much he has accomplished in life. With everyone that worked for him has been around a very long time and are like family.  I asked, "Just how do you do it?" He goes onto tell me that he surrounds himself with good people. 

He loved every person that worked for him, and I got to see that first hand when he asked to come shoot his corporate Christmas Party in 2014. He would hold the event in a ballroom at a hotel and made sure everyone had a room to stay the night so no one would have to drive home.

I will always remember the great rides we had in his Outerlimits, and the suggestions he gave me on shooting his boat when I was just starting out. 

I carry his advice on every shoot since then. 

With his passing, he is leaving a huge void in many of us. I know it will take some time, but we need to be strong and celebrate Anthony's life.

He is certainly going to be missed by so many people .

Enjoy these photos of Anthony's memories. He always said he was glad to have me around to capture the moments, because in the end, all we have is the 

memories to look back on... 

Godspeed Anthony.... I was so lucky to have known you....

God bless the Sauta family and friends....

VIDEO: If There Is A Need We Feed https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/11/video-if-there-is-a-need-we-feed Since taking care of the first responders on Barnegat Bay Island after Superstorm Sandy, this group of volunteers and Chef Mike Jurusz, Cliff Baker, Christine Hernandez, Michelle Jones and the support of their donors have continued their efforts feeding those that need a meal.

This is the 6th Annual event of providing 700+ Thanksgiving Dinners made, packaged and delivered to those in need.

Sharkey-Images had the opportunity this year to capture the behind the scenes of what it takes to make 13 dinners per minute.

Of course it goes without saying that a lot of prep work is done prior to the morning of Thanksgiving, but it is still quite a task to make the dinners and get them shipped out in under 3 hours from the time the volunteers arrive.

This video will walk you through on how they do it from the volunteers's instructions to the execution of those instructions.

With last weekend’s Offshore Powerboat Association 2017 National Championships at the Lake Hopatcong Grand Prix in New Jersey in the books, competitors across all OPA classes are looking ahead to the organization’s World Championships in November. But there’s still plenty to savor from yesterday’s action, which saw 44 boats in the fleet. 

The Super Vee, Super Vee Light, Classes 1-7 and Extreme took to the track during five races yesterday, which gave everyone a chance at a fairly open course. Dead flat waters and tight turns resulted in some very close racing.

2017 Hudson River Run Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/9/2017-hudson-river-run-photos This was the 9th time shooting the Hudson River Run and the day could not have been more perfect for shooting. 

I was fortunate enough to have my friends Paul & Jessica invite me to shoot off their 36 Concept powered by twin 350 Mercury Outboards.

To start the day, we were just north of West Point in the narrows. I mapped this area out during the week and made sure I had sunlight on the boats. 

Once all had passed on by we raced towards the Newburgh Bridge where the plan was to have the boats wait for us to pass so that we had another round of shooting. As luck would have it, we were just coming up on the bridge when all of sudden majority of the boats had left before we got there.

No big deal as I knew I would have better shots on the way back any way as the bows of the boats would be running into the sun. 

So off to lunch for us where we stopped at a high end restaurant called Shadows on the Hudson near the Mid Hudson Bridge. 

The food was great and having a chance to kick back and relax while we waited for everyone to finish up their lunch in Kingston, NY was a plus.

I put a call in around 2:30 PM to see what their estimated time was for their departure so that I could be sure we were in position.

Timing was perfect and no need to rush through lunch to get back to shooting.

Just as we got into position the first boat starts coming down. It was a good distance so the boats were very spread out making it much easier to get everyone I could.

Once they had all passed a second time we then went to Newburgh to tie up at Billy Joe's Ribworks to meet up with some friends on the docks.

It's been a long time since I have seen some of my friends so it was great to catch up with them and do a photo shoot for an upcoming story in SpeedontheWater.com Magazine .

It was getting close to the sun going down and I was desperately wanting to shoot Paul & Jessica's Concept as we headed back.

That is when Kendall Todd offered me a seat on his 30' Superboat powered by Richie Zul 800hp engine. What was even more impressive was shooting his 13 year old daughter throttling and driving the boat up to speeds of 80+ mph. You may read that story at SpeedontheWater.com .

SpeedontheWater.com

Heading into its seventh year, the Arcuri for Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba—known as SUDS—Fundraiser is set for Saturday, Sept. 9 in Brick, N.J. Among the traditional activities of the day, which includes lunch, dinner and live entertainment, are powerboat rides for wounded veterans who participate in the SUDS program, which “gives permanently disabled service members the opportunity to try a challenging and rewarding activity that can help facilitate the rehabilitation process and be an activity that they can enjoy for years to come,” according to the nonprofit organization’s website. 

With the event roughly a week away, organizer Nick Acuri and his team of Ray Malaspina and Dave Magliaro currently are looking for powerboat owners interested in giving rides to SUDS program veterans during the day. Vessels of all kinds are welcome.  READ MORE...

Sutton Thomas Music Video "Greenhouse" https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/8/sutton-thomas-music-video-greenhouse Story Credits BelowEmpty.com by Tyrant

 

Tom Gleason: "I had been singing and writing songs at the piano since I was seven. When I had enough good songs, I asked a young drummer around the corner to join my band – his name was Tom Contreras, a phenomenal drummer and great vocalist as well.  He toured with STP for quite a while as a drum tech and has performed with them live as well.
At this point I was 9 and Tom Contreras was 7. We practiced playing and singing together and his father, who managed some nightclubs in the New Jersey area where we lived, allowed us to sit in when the bands took breaks and play our originals. You could barely see us on stage but we were good. I called the band Wonderspace.
I was friends with Dean at school since about second grade and we started hanging out. I knew he was learning the guitar, so I asked him to join the band as well. We played together as a trio for a while and honed our craft, then we added a bass player, Jeff Madole, another friend from school. From this point we practiced a lot and played gigs at clubs and colleges and parties. We also went into the recording studio for the first time and cut a record called “Into the Hollow.” We became quite popular after playing a huge concert at our High School. We practiced in my parent’s basement and Dean still thanks them on all the STP records.

Click on the VIDEO below for the opening song "GREENHOUSE" . 

Link to Video of : "I Drank to Forget"

 

 

 

My father owned some restaurants in New York City and got us some gigs at nightclubs up there, so we played a lot in NY and we would showcase for record companies when we could. We got a great write up in Variety magazine as a young band to watch with great music and harmonies – hailed as the next Bee Gees. Dean and Tom and I were like brothers and spent every moment together writing and playing.
When Jeff left the band we took a short break to look for another bass player and to write a lot more songs. I wrote a lot of the songs alone and Dean and I wrote a lot together and we had some great times. We found another bass player, Tracy White, and I suggested we change the name of the band to The Sage’s Pages. We had a very polished progressive rock sound with incredible complex vocal harmonies and played often and gained in popularity.
At this point, we played a lot in New York in clubs like Trax and CBGB’s as well as New Jersey clubs like The Stone Pony and Big Man’s West sharing the bill with up and comers like Bon Jovi, who was “John Bongiovi and the Wild Ones” at that time. We secured management and had some serious interest, but it never panned out.
The other three guys wanted to play a lot more cover tunes and I was a songwriter first and foremost and I was against the idea – so they split and formed Tyrus. I believe Robert joined them as well. Robert had always been around Wonderspace and The Pages, just paying attention and learning to play in his spare time. When I built my first recording studio, Robert came in and he and I did an entire album together and had a lot of creative and productive sessions. He is an amazingly creative musician and great fun to be around.

I then formed another incredible band called Elias with Rob Affuso, who would later become the drummer of Skid Row when they formed about six years later. We played Sundays at the Stone Pony opening up for Bruce Springsteen among other gigs.

I became Sutton Thomas and formed The Sutton Thomas Band with my old friend and Wonderspace drummer Tom Contreras and some other guys and we had some regional success and recorded a lot. I also built a successful recording studio business and wrote a lot of big TV commercial Jingles like Sands Casino with Cher, Pennzoil, Liz Taylor’s Passion perfume, Sunkist and many more. 
I moved my Production Company, Real Sound Media, to Nashville TN in the 90’s and concentrated on songwriting, composing and producing other artists and have done quite well at it and still enjoy it today."   READ MORE ...

2017 Ray Nuchereno Memorial Poker Run Photos & Videos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/8/2017-ray-nuchereno-memorial-poker-run-photos-videos 2017 Summer Vacation

A last minute decision had been made late Friday morning to take a road trip with my wife, youngest of 2 daughters and two dogs and head north to Buffalo where we planned to stay for a long weekend.  In general , I always wanted to get up there to show my daughter Niagara Falls and were almost going to do it last year but it wasn't in the cards. This year an additional reason for me to go was to pay my respects to the loss of Ray Nuchereno.  Having covered the Buffalo Poker Run for 5 years I come to learn Ray was a huge supporter of the event and his loss sent shockwaves through the power boating community.

While I had no intention initially to shoot the event, plans change by the minute with me and the family and when it was decided to skip breakfast and wait for lunch, that opened up the opportunity to go watch the boats go by. 

Giving additional thought of some of my best customers participating and one with a new boat, I would be a fool not to be shooting while I had the chance.

As you will see in the galleries, this was no attempt to actually cover the event, as Elite Poker Runs had already secured a photographer and they had all the coverage they would need, so I simply shot the first pack of boats that had gone by and well over 100 shots of the general public boaters running on the Niagara River that day.  It was only a brief glimpse of what was taking place that day, but to be able to meet up with people I have not seen in a few years made one part of it worth the trip.

Perhaps one day  I will go back to shooting to what people got accustomed to with my event coverage, but for this year at least, this past weekend was just a little getaway time...

In Memory of Ray Nuchereno https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/6/in-memory-of-ray-nuchereno Written by Matt Trulio 

SpeedontheWater.com

 

A beloved and respected longtime member of the Western New York Offshore Powerboat Association based in Buffalo, N.Y., Ray Nuchereno lost his battle with cancer and died yesterday at his home in the Tonawanda. He was 59 years old.

Nuchereno had fought multiple myeloma for several years. Among the many performance boats he owned was a 42-Fountain—his most recent was a 47-foot Fountain—he named Multiple What in a nod to his courageous fight for life.

“He was WYNOPA’s biggest supporter,” said Tony Scioli, a member of the club and the founder of Elite Poker Runs LLC, which is running the Western New York Poker Run (formerly the Buffalo Poker Run) this year. “The Buffalo Poker Run wouldn’t have been what it was without him. He was good for bringing at least $10,000 in sponsorship money every year. He was one of the nicest guys you would ever meet.    READ MORE...

More than 100 veterans from New Jersey and New York enjoyed thrill rides on land and sea last Saturday as the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club hosted former military and their families for a day of fun, fellowship and appreciation during Operation Shore Fun in Atlantic City. For the fourth year in a row as part of its Atlantic City Rally, the NJPCC thanked veterans for their service with powerboat excursions, a free day at Atlantic City’s Steel Pier amusement park courtesy of the venue and a complimentary cocktail reception at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino that evening.

Members of the Combat Wounded Veterans of America, Mission Transition and Disabled American Veterans participated. A brief squall rolled through the area and delayed the action, but that was the only hitch in an otherwise flawless day. READ MORE...

Of all the rides I could have snagged while covering yesterday’s New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club 20th Annual Atlantic City Rally for speedonthewater.com, I ended up on a pontoon boat. And it turned out to be an absolute blast—maybe even a bit of a revelation.

A 30-foot Bennington Tri-Toon Triple D powered by twin 300-hp Yamaha 300 outboard engines, my ride is owned by longtime go-fast boat enthusiasts Doug and Sherry Falcone of Brick, N.J., who do most of their boating in the Morris Town, N.J., area. And it wasn’t just my first ride in a state-of-the-art pontoon boat—it was the first time a pontoon boat has entered an NJPPC event.  READ MORE...

First Responders "ALL IN" for the Search of Smith Bros Race Boat https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2017/5/first-responders-all-in-for-the-search-of-smith-bros-race-boat It has been over one week since the accident between Repeat Offender Offshore Race Team and Smith Brothers Racing/CRC  at the Offshore Performance Association's Pt Pleasant Beach Grand Prix had taken place in which claimed the life of David Raabe and sunk the Smith Brothers/CRC race boat. A mandatory non-criminal investigation is still ongoing with the assistance of the NJ State Police and no criminal charges are expected to be filed. Both Rich & Pete Smith had been treated and released and the driver of Repeat Offender J.P. Byrne remains hospitalized and is expected to make a full recovery.  READ MORE by MaryAnn Spoto 

The Smith Brothers race boat remains on the ocean's bottom at this time but has been finally located over the Memorial Day Weekend. From recent storms the clarity of the ocean water was degraded, leaving the Divers very little visibility. They caught a break on Sunday May 28th with an incoming tide and the water clearing up. The boat has been found upside down making it even more of a challenge for the Divers to place air bags inside the hull in order to raise the boat. It took most of the day to get the boat right side up and ran out of time for the day so they postponed the recovery efforts until Tuesday waiting for the most recent bad weather conditions to subside. 

I have been following the progress of the search and recovery all week and hope the boat can finally be recovered on the next attempt. 

A huge thank you is well deserved for all of the personnel that have been donating their time and boats for this recovery effort.

2016 NJPPC August Brunch Run Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/8/2016-njppc-august-brunch-run-photos ONE HOT BRUNCH  !!!

Sunny, 97 degrees and 80 to 95 mph as I filmed and shot stills of a number of boats on the NJPPC August Brunch Run to the Captain's Inn today.

Even the wind at those speeds was not making it any cooler, but that did not stop me getting some colorful shots of the day.

2016 Thunder in the City Poker Run https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/7/2016-thunder-in-the-city-poker-run One event I have had on my bucket list for a long time, Thunder in the City of Chesapeake City, Maryland.

Fortunately I was able to reschedule plans for Saturday and make the trip to Maryland at sunrise the next morning.

NJPPC members packed the wonderful outside deck of this establishment for a great buffet featuring all the best of breakfast delights as well made to order omelets. Another great social event by the NJPPC . If you are local to the Captain's Inn, I highly recommend stopping in on a Sunday morning for their breakfast buffet by land or by sea.

At the time I was just going to send them the clip, but once I got to thinking, I figured I would add a bit more of the event to it for them...

Formula Drift at Wall Stadium Speedway https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/6/formula-drift-at-wall-stadium-speedway Today I was a camera operator for Send It Productions recording for CBS Sports TV Programming with the Formula Drift Car Racing Series  as well as on the Live Feed for Livestream  at Wall Stadium Speedway for the Round 4 of the Series.

It certainly was a different type of racing considering  I am used to shooting performance boats running in excess of 125 mph and other off road vehicles but very much of the same shooting techniques. The weather conditions could not have been better as well as the crew from Send It Productions

I look forward to seeing the final edited TV Shows to be aired on CBS Sports Network.

Below is just a small video clip from my point of view of the track station at the Northeast corner of the track or in this case Turn 3.

2016 NJPPC ATLANTIC CITY RALLY PHOTOS https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/6/2016-njppc-atlantic-city-rally-photos I've been hard at work rummaging through the 3,600 plus images take from Friday's Rally to Atlantic City.

Thank you for everyone's patience as this has been an insane last two weeks having  shot 4 events with a total of 7 days of shooting and over 1,000 miles driven. All and all I have literally over 10,000 images plus video to sort through. 

The good news is I am getting closer to being finished with the photos from the Atlantic City Rally.

The images may be accessed by clicking on this image below.

If you had not signed up with a $100 deposit, I have not focused on any images that I may have, solely due to the current workload . 

I have the option available if you are interested in having me process the images of your boat from the event, just simply make a payment of the deposit by CLICKING HERE. 

I will make a final announcement here when I am finished with uploading all of the images that had a PAID DEPOSIT.

Participant Event Coverage Deposits https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/6/participant-event-coverage-deposits               Having an overly mass amount of content shot at every one of the events I attend, I feel it is time to focus on the clients that truly are interested in purchasing the products. Over the last few years I have been kindly asking for minimal deposits to show commitment that the client is willing to come back after an event and proof the content. As always the Deposit is fully refundable should the client not find anything they are interested in purchasing or if I was unable to get the coverage due to the client's mechanical breakdown or any other reason. These past two weekends more than ever, I have shot a total of 7 days at 4 different events and drove well over 1,000 miles. 3 of those events were in 3 consecutive days. With that, I come back with over 10,000 images and now a whole lot of video footage. 

              So to cut down on unnecessary workload, I will be working on and focusing on clients that have paid a deposit. I know there are times people may not get the opportunity to make the payment prior to the event (which is preferred) so that I know who to provide coverage to. That is why I have now setup a Deposit Payment Link on the website.  If you would like me to spend the time processing the images of your boat, car, truck or any other subject, I will be happy to do so after a Deposit has been made.  Galleries will be made and ready for the uploading of the content but will be Password Protected until paid.

I am sure many of my clients can understand the need for this.  Far too often I have done all of the work to only have people come in and screen shoot the content and post to Facebook . Not sure why they need to do that when I offer SHARE LINKS on all of my content on my website to the major social media networks.

Upon placing an order a Coupon Code is used. Once the code is placed in the box upon Check Out, the order is credit for the full amount of the Deposit.

All orders are proofed before being authorized to go forward to the Printing Process. At that time is when I inspect that all deposits have been credited properly. So if you forget to put the Code in and I know you have a Credit, I will make the adjustment manually.

Thank you,

Tim Sharkey

Written by Mike Yowaiski / SpeedontheWater.com

The 2016 Offshore Powerboat Association racing season opened yesterday to a healthy 35-boat fleet in rough seas off New Jersey’s Point Pleasant Beach. Dreary conditions including rain and wind kept most teams from practicing on Saturday, but the skies did stay clear long enough for the boat parade in the small town. Sunday’s water conditions included 3- to 5-foot seas—smaller than predicted—out of the east, and that made for some wild action, especially in the turns.

The first race of the day included  READ MORE...

Among Scott Sjogren’s publicly stated goals in creating a show-stopping showroom, complete with a lounge called “Club 48,” in his relatively new ShogrenPerformance Marine facility in McHenry, Ill., was to hold special functions in an inviting, upscale setting for his customers and their guests. That happened for the first time last night when the global Mystic Powerboats dealer hosted more than 70 members of the Northern Illinois Offshore Club for the organization’s monthly meeting.

Story by Matt Trulio / SpeedontheWater.com 

For those of us not lucky enough to be in Dubai, UAE, for the opening of the 2016 Dubai International Boat Show (March 1-5), the fine folks at MTI were gracious enough to send us several images of the company’s new MTI-V 57, its first 57-foot center console.

The pre-production model, which is powered by quad Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines and reached 68 mph during a test session on Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks, was built with a little less creature comforts and more fishing features than MTI's production version will include. As you can see from the rendering in the slideshow below, the production model will have a more substantial cabin and console.  READ MORE ....

SATURDAY TEST DAY, PARADE & JENKS PARTY at the Pt Pleasant Beach Grand Prix https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/5/saturday-test-day-parade-jenks-party-at-the-pt-pleasant-beach-grand-prix A long day for sure on Saturday and Sunday will be even longer.  The rain held off for most of the testing today and we could not have been luckier that the rain had stopped in time to hold the Parade. I personally have not seen a Point Pleasant Beach Parade in such a long time and the town pulled out all of the stops with the 1st responders and the Beach High School Marching Band. It was a sight to see !

2016 OPA Pt Pleasant Beach Grand Prix Block Party Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/5/2016-opa-pt-pleasant-beach-grand-prix-block-party-photos       The Pt Pleasant Beach Grand Prix sponsored by Jersey Mike's Subs Race Block Party on Friday night had a great turnout of spectators and boats lining up the streets in the downtown area. Racers were available to speak with one on one, bands and DJ's kept the music playing throughout the entire time. Restaurants were packing people in for food and drinks which helps a great deal for what may have been a more quiet Friday night the weekend before Memorial Day. Also observed was a crowded boardwalk earlier in the day. People in town and the visitors that came to see the race this weekend are really excited!

Latest weather report for Sunday shows Cloudy to Partly Sunny  with seas ranging 4 to 5 feet. Certainly going to see these boat flying ! Come on out and enjoy the races and all that goes along with it!

Americas Cup 2016 New York https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/5/americas-cup-2016-new-york After a 96 year absence from racing in New York Harbor, Americas Cup returns this year with their hydrofoil designed vessels.

Weather on Saturday made for a disappointment of having to cancel 2 of the 3 races scheduled due to the lack of wind. 

Fortunately I stuck out having checked my Wind Alert App showing increasing winds by 3PM and the 3 event went off without a hitch.

Skater 318 https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/3/skater-318  

Story by Matt Trulio - SpeedontheWater.com

Steve Lane can’t wait to get his hands back on the first Skater Powerboats 318 catamaran, which as it happens is his first catamaran, this spring. Then again, Lane, a retired 51-year-old businessman who lives in Toms River, N.J., is a patient guy. Thanks to a variety of factors including delivery of his 31-footer’s twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard engines, the build took longer than expected. The early summer 2015 shakedown cruise Lane had hoped for on his home waters of Barnegat Bay became a moment behind the wheel during the cat’s dial-in and setup session on Wisconsin’s Lake Winnebago near the headquarters of Mercury Racing.   Read more....

2016 WINTER STORM JONAS https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2016/1/2016-nor-easter-jonas This storm had to be the most extreme conditions I have ever shot in.  Wind, Hail, Sand and Salt Water pounding hard with predictions of over 50 mph gusts.

This storm's venture was more about trying to learn something from it.  The key focus is the steel wall  that runs along Mantoloking and Brick. In comparison, I shot Bay Head which has a rock wall.  There is quite a difference in energy reduction of the waves landing on the beach after viewing the video .

2015 Hudson River Fall Fun Run Photos & Videos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/10/2015-hudson-river-fall-fun-run Sharkey-Images returns to the Hudson River Run after a 4 year hiatus.  

I was first introduced to this event when then sponsor Mahopac Marine had invited me to come shoot their event in 2009. The Fall Hudson River Run doesn't get much better when you can capture the foliage at its peak. It inspired people to keep their boats in a little longer which eventually with such a demand from the people they wanted a Spring Run as well furthermore extending the boating season a bit longer by getting the boats in sooner during the Spring. I have shot the event 7 times since 2009.  Every year was very unique in its own way and this year was no different.  Jonathan Godfry picked up the event 3 years ago when the previous organizer, then Anthony Rogosich had run out of time for the event due to family obligations. The event was off my radar for the last few years not that I did not want to attend what became an annual ritual for me, but a lower attendance had showed up for the events the last few years that it just did not make business sense to go that distance . Just about 2 weeks before this year's event I was getting messages from many of the people asking me if I would come shoot the event. I pretty much summed it up that I would love to, but I need to be assured I have a minimum number of people to commit if they wanted a helicopter and myself to come to the event. Within a few days we had enough people committing. Then the next thing was people asking for video. People love video. I didn't want to say no but now we just had to up the ante  to cover the time it was going to take to shoot and edit a video of the event. Once again within a day or two we had people commit. This prompted me to purchase a new Full HD ACV Cam . Inturn I brought onboard an assistant George Wilde to be shooting video with a 2nd Rented HD Camera. This was so I had full video recording the whole time while I switched back and forth between my Still Camera and the new HD Video Camera.  I look forward to working on this Video Project which is expected to take an estimated of a month or two depending on how quickly we can receive people's onboard camera footage.

Fundraiser for James "Buddy" Lange https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/9/fundraiser-for-james-buddy-lange Buddy was born with Cornelia De Lange Syndrome, a developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body. At 4 days old he had heart surgery to repair his heart temporarily until he is a teenager in which he will have to have another heart surgery. He has possible mental defects, a cleft palate which will need to be repaired, he can only eat thru a feeding tube and has sensorineural hearing loss. Although there is hope for Buddy, he still has a long road ahead of him. Along with Buddy's battle comes financial strain for medical expenses. All donations will be greatly appreciated by the Lange family and will go directly to the family to help with these medical expenses.

 

If you are unable to attend and would still like to help BUDDY, please click on the image below to access the GOFUNDME website to make a donation to Buddy. 

Thank you!

2015 BUFFALO POKER RUN https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/8/2015-buffalo-poker-run This was my 5th year shooting for the Buffalo Poker Run. Each year the event just keeps getting better and better.

I believe I set a new record in the amount of images taken for a single event.  A bit more than 6,500 images were taken over the course of Friday Night and Saturday.  Needless to say that is taking quite a bit of time to rummage through, sort out and identify the boats that had placed Deposits for Photo Orders.

The good news is I am about halfway through the images. Those that had placed $300 Deposits, those images are now all online. I am currently working through the $200 Deposit Packages and will follow up with the $100 Deposit Packages thereafter. 

All images will eventually end up at this link:  2015 Buffalo Poker Run Photos  

​I thank you in advance for your patience. 

It will be announced here when All images are online. 

There are several boat manufacturers that I have no Deposits for: Crownline, Motion, Pantera, Spectre, and Velocity.  I know for sure there is a Pantera and a Sonic that got some crazy air... Special Offer has been extended and Deposits may be placed here:  Special Offer

Thank you once again to the WNYOPA & the Buffalo Poker Run  for another well run event...

2015 NJPPC ATLANTIC CITY RALLY PHOTOS https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/7/2015-njppc-atlantic-city-rally-photos Written by Tony Esposito for http://speedonthewater.com

When your weekend-long boating event is being threatened with rain, you look for silver linings in every cloud. Fortunately for the organizers of and participants in yesterday’s Atlantic City Powerboat Rally, no one had to look that hard. The weather cleared long enough for the 70-mile rally—renamed this year from its former Atlantic City Poker Run handle—to happen under cloud-dotted skies.

New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club president Dave Patnaude explained the thinking behind the event’s name change.

“The words ‘poker run’ have a connotation of big boats,” Patnaude said. “Calling it a rally and changing the format opens the event to more boaters."

Instead of the traditional card stops of a poker run, the New Jersey event had predetermined rally points where the fleet would regroup and re-launch. The event attracted 30 boats, from.......  Read more

Paterson Great Falls https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/2/paterson-great-falls With wind chills reaching sub-zero degrees, I ventured to the Paterson Great Falls in Paterson, NJ in hopes to capture the Falls iced over . For the most part they were. I started off just before sunrise shooting the Generation Plant then made my way to the top of the Falls on the north side to capture the sunrise. While there I shot some of the surrounding area including the dam.  Once the sun was up I needed to wait for it to come around and line up with the center of the valley.  The shoot lasted a little over 4 hours but was a great experience. I hope to come back in the Spring after the winter snow begins to melt there will be a much more active Falls and a larger volume of water coming over them.

Big Moose Lake and Snowmobiles in the Adirondacks https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/2/big-moose-lake-and-snowmobiles-in-the-adirondacks It was quite the adventure to travel into the Adirondack Mountains this passed weekend. Arriving on Friday to come shoot an event happening at Big Moose Lake on Saturday. I read a lot of promotions about this event and I was expecting to see well over 100 snowmobiles racing.   1st stop was the Big Moose Inn where it was stated on the event's Facebook page that testing was going on and there was an expectation for a great turnout on Saturday. 

See all images taken this weekend in the Adirondacks:   CLICK HERE

As I arrived at the Big Moose Inn, (which is a great place by the way) I was a bit shocked at how few people were there. I spoke with the owner of the INN to confirm  the start time for Saturday's event. I was told 11:00 AM. It is my understanding that the event is not actually put on by the Big Moose Inn they only host it, there is a separate organizer for the event itself.  Not much was happening Friday night so off to the cabin I went to prep my equipment for the next day.

150131A 262-1150131A 262-1

On Saturday upon arriving at the course, there were snowmobiles everywhere! I thought this was a good sign until I learned just how many were actually there to race. One person close to the event stated there were approximately 55 registered entries. While making my way through the crowd out on the lake in my Dodge 3500, I was stopped and asked to pull out a guy's truck who had got stuck in the snow, a friend of the organizer of the event I was later told.  No problem, we hooked a strap on it and pulled it right out... I am sure someone would have done the same for me had I got stuck. 

By this time 11AM came and went.  This event did not go off until after 12:30 PM.  On the plus side, the fast ones ended up in the first few heats... 

​As the day went on I simply lost  interest. It seemed there was too much time between heats. 

I came to this event to see how well organized it was, having been asked to cover this event back in the Fall, I initially agreed. I later decided it was in my best interest not to commit to this event this year until I saw the event first hand. I gave plenty of notice to the organizer so he had enough time to find someone else to commit to what he needed done.

Quite the shock came just after the 3rd or 4th heat. The organizer came to me and told me to stop taking video. All the spectators around me were puzzled at why he was telling me to stop shooting video. As to not cause a scene, I agreed to put the video cameras away. Not that I needed to, but at the rate the heats were going I just was not interested in shooting the video at this point.  

Video Cams all packed away and keeping warm, I continued to shoot stills as the heats continued. The organizer then comes back asking what I was doing? I stated I was shooting stills for myself.  Needless to say he wanted me to stop that too.  Well, after traveling 6 hours to get there I was not going home with empty cards.  He seemed to have forgotten that he was on a public lake. His event or not, he cannot stop someone from shooting it. There was no ticketed admission to a gated area and this certainly is not NASCAR.  Besides the fact, I was apparently the only person asked to do so while many others lined the track shooting their stills and their video and I did not see him say anything to them. 

With just a $20 entry fee for racers, my first instinct was how could this possibly be professionally run ?  Out of $1,100 in entry fees, not quite sure how they can pay people to work the event that  I know are not volunteers... ???

It is quite unfortunate that just this one individual from the organization (Andrew) left me walking way from this event and never looking back.

Rather than embrace the 3 additional cameras capturing his event that he did not have to pay to get there, he wanted to shut them down.  He could have seized the opportunity to perhaps use my footage as well as what he was getting from some of the others.  No big deal.  It gave me a little more incentive to come to the Adirondacks. After less than 90 minutes shooting at the event, I found myself packing up the equipment and headed off to my first real Snowmobiling experience for the rest of the weekend with some great friends. 

From the photos I got throughout this entire trip and the 2 days of snowmobiling on the lakes and through the trails, it will be a weekend I will forever remember.  The Big Moose Event was just a bump in the trail and like anything else you just move on and learn from it...

Speed on the Water Portfolio: Tim Sharkey https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2015/1/speed-on-the-water-portfolio-tim-sharkey Written by Matt Trulio 

Monday January 12, 2015

 

Photographer Tim Sharkey is, through and through, a New Jersey boy. Before, during and after Super Storm Sandy a couple of years back, which laid waste to much of the New Jersey Shoreline, the local Brick Township shooter continually put himself in harm's way to capture the coastal communities of his beloved Garden State coming apart, and then slowly coming back to together—work that continues today. No local photographer has dedicated more time and energy, without compensation, to chronicling the devastation of Super Storm Sandy and the coastal restoration still going on in its aftermath.

Atlantic City, NJ

 

The Annual FUN RUN brought to you by the Oyster Creek Inn was held last Sunday. 

Although the weather was just ok, it was certainly not Apache water by any means. By 12PM the Sun gave way to clouds and overcast, and shooting photographs from any great distance becomes excessively challenging. Although these images are not the best representation of my work, it was still an amazing shoot to capture several Apache Powerboats on the great Atlantic Ocean at the same time.

Generation Next https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2014/5/generation-next Generation Next

Written by Matt Trulio

 

Despite the fact that the race teams, offshore racing fans and the leadership of the Offshore Powerboat Association put a brave face on it, the cancellation of last weekend's race on Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey had to be disappointing. When 30 teams show up for a race that doesn't happen because the elements—in this case a too-high lake level thanks courtesy of torrential rains—conspire against it, there's plenty of disappointment to go around. (The good news, of course, is  Read more ......

Tales of the Jersey Shore Season Two https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2014/4/tales-of-the-jersey-shore-season-two

Special Announcement from Producer, Author/Historian Emil Salvini:

 

Tales of the Jersey Shore highlights the historical relevance and family friendly side of the NJ's shore cities. The show is raising money for season two on NJTV.

The television program “Tales of the Jersey Shore” has been asked to return for a six episode second season on NJTV. To meet this demand my small crew and I are running a Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary funds and continue to bring quality programming to public television. 

Tales, which began as a grassroots blog and Facebook group in 2010 and has since grown to over 45,000 followers, was started by Historian and Author Emil Salvini as way of more accurately reflecting NJ’s beauty and spirit than its television counterparts that played on harmful State stereotypes. The show prides itself on highlighting the historical relevance and family friendly side of the shore while promoting local tourism and educating it’s audience on the important role New Jersey has played from it’s earliest days to today. 

The campaign aims to raise $60,000, a fraction of the cost it would take a traditional high definition show to produce a season. With this campaign you have the peace of mind knowing you are giving directly to the continued production of this popular NJTV show and not to general public television costs. 

In season two we are looking forward to exploring topics like the history of NJ's influential music scene,  Maritime lighthouses and diving bells, classic amusement parks from years past and more. As always our goal is to educate and entertain at the same time. 

We pride ourselves in offering multiple perspectives and a variety of expert interviews in each show to make sure we are doing episode topics justice and telling a complete story.   

 For more information visit www.TalesOfTheJerseyShore.org or call Associate Producer Greg Russo at 732-784-7263.

Martells Tiki Bar vs Superstorm Sandy https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2014/3/martells-tiki-bar-vs-superstorm-sandy  

February 23rd, 2013

Republished:

March 25th, 2014 

Point Pleasant Beach, NJ 

Martells Tiki Bar Pier on the beachfront of Point Pleasant Beach was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Unlike so many other areas, Martells managed to reopen just 3 weeks after the storm, according to Assistant General Manager Ed Brannagan . 

Sharkey-Images has been following the progress of Martells restoration and they appear to be on target to have their Pier open for Memorial Day weekend if not sooner. For now, while under construction, the entire inside facility is "OPEN for BUSINESS".  

Have a look at the video below to see just how far they have come since Superstorm Sandy .

Sharkey-Images was on the scene minutes after the first fire truck arrived and documented such a fine job all first responders had done in containing this blaze to just the one house. With all of the dry leaves surrounding this hillside property, had the responders not be there to act so quickly, this fire could have spread to other surrounding homes in the neighborhood .

2014 NJPPC Winter Party Photos https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2014/3/2014-njppc-winter-party-photos 2014 NJPPC Winter Party held at Chef Mikes Atlantic Bar and Grill in Seaside Park, NJ.  

Chef Mike has been very active in supporting the club as well as everyone's favorite event of the year, Shore Dreams for Kids.

NJPPC has selected Chef Mike's restaurant for not only the amazing  gourmet food and his support, but decided this location was much closer to home for many of the NJPPC Club members over the choice of the Atlantic City venue.  Also keeping in mind the effects of Superstorm Sandy not only on the member's primary and secondary homes, but also to support Chef Mike's Atlantic Bar and Grill during this difficult time of recovery and rebuild of the barrier island.  Fortunately, Chef Mike's Atlantic Bar and Grill has a protective sand dune and is at one of the highest parts of the island and sustained little to no damage.  

The location of Chef Mike's Atlantic Bar and Grill is at the southern most part of Seaside Park with oceanfront views.  With having the party here, the NJPPC and Chef Mike hope to introduce the place to people that may have never been there and also to get the word out that the restaurant is open for business.  It is just minutes south from the Route 37 bridge.  As many will tell you, the food and the atmosphere is certainly worth the trip.  Beachside dining just does not get any better than this !

Patnuade Launches Boat Brokerage Site https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2014/1/patnuade-launches-boat-brokerage-site Matt Trulio/Speedonthewater.com 

January 15th , 2014

 

Dave Patnaude, the longtime president of the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club, has launched a new website called eBoatBroker.com. According to a press release from the new outfit, the site is a "one-stop" portal for boat brokerage, financing and insurance.

eboatbrokers logoeboatbrokers logo

"What makes eBoatBrokers.com different is what we don't do," said Patnaude, who handled marine lending for Essex Credit for seven years and Bank of America for three years, in the release. "We don't hand off a buyer to another contact at a lending institution or insurance company. Instead, we handle all three transactions. AeBoatBrokers.com, the client works with a single individual."

According to Patnaude, eBoatBroker.com will go beyond standard online listings by maximizing exposure on major sale-and-purchase sites—most notably ebay and craigslist—that are not exclusive to the marine world and, as such, reach a broader audience.  Read more ...

2013 Shootout hosted by American Snowmobiler Magazine https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/12/2013-shootout-hosted-by-american-snowmobiler-magazine Sharkey-Images is always looking for new and fresh subjects to shoot. This past weekend was no different.

Sharkey kicked the weekend off on Friday Decemeber 13th in Woodgate, NY for the annual American Snowmobiler Magazine Shootout.

"Working with American Snowmobiler Magazine was a pleasure. Everyone at the event could not have been more helpful in my positioning for the shots at the Starting Line" said Sharkey.  Although the snow kept coming down for the first half of the event, Sharkey held cover by shooting off the back of his truck. Once the snow cleared he made his way around the track searching for additional angles .

Remembering Joey Gratton "In His Own Words" https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/11/remembering-joey-gratton-in-his-own-words by Tom MacKnight

I was one of the lucky ones that could call Joey Gratton a friend. He was there for me many times and supported me because that was Joey. This video was made from leftover interviews and footage I did for my offshore documentary. If it wasn't for Joey, I probably wouldn't have been able to make my documentary or my move to Sarasota. Take a moment and remember Joey today.

Two years ago today. Still in our hearts Joey Gratton!

2013 Solomons Island Fun Run https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/9/2013-solomons-island-fun-run SOLOMONS ISLAND FUN RUN brought out a wide array of powerboats for a great day on the water.  

Boats ranging from center consoles, a pontoon, right on up to a 44 MTI .

This day was simply a FUN RUN with a little bit of Poker thrown in. Everything was optional but as they say, "You got to be in it to win it!" .

Several stops along the Patuxent River of Maryland were named with the other option of the order anyone decided to do them in. There was no "Official Start" so people left at their leisure . The only thing that had a time on it was the time a lunch buffet was to start at Clarkes Landing. 

So people had a chance to boat and relax throughout the day at several stops with many of their friends and new friends they met along the way.

This was a great way to kick off the Solomons Island Offshore Grand Prix being held the next day.

Seaside Heights Boardwalk Takes Another Devastating Blow https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/9/seaside-heights-boardwalk-takes-another-devastating-blow A fire broke out on the Seaside Boardwalk yesterday with an estimated 30 fire companies responding to the call. The strong winds made this fire spread very quickly to the north for several blocks . It was over 6 hours before the firefighters were able to bring it under control.  Gas mains were shut down as well as Electricity in the surrounding areas of Seaside Heights.  A huge presence of all types of law enforcement throughout the darken seaside town kept everyone safe.

"If You Build It" https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/7/-if-you-build-it "If You Build it"  

Written by Rich Luhrs

This month, we were fortunate to attend two Northeast performance boating events in two weeks. The first, the National Powerboat Association's New York City Poker Run—dormant for four years—showed a bit of hope for the future as a truly high-quality fleet turned out for the resurrected event.

What the event lacked in quantity—back in the day fleets of more than 150 boats packed the Hudson River two deep from shore to shore—it made up for in eye-catching quality. More than 30 extraordinary high-end cats and V-bottoms gave notice that the sport may be re-emerging as a viable nationwide series, either because of or in spite of local economic conditions. The weather sparkled, the boats were spectacular as they ran on the Hudson and NPBA's Billy Frenz and his team are certainly on to something. We came away thinking that there was at least some hope spinning around us.

And then came Atlantic City!    Read more ...

Atlantic City Festival of Speed : Why It Worked https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/7/atlantic-city-festival-of-speed-why-it-worked Story by Matt Trulio 

Yesterday, I spoke to Dave Patnaude, the president of the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club and one of driving forces behind last weekend's Festival of Speed in Atlantic City, and he was euphoric. After months of planning, the three-day event came off, by all accounts—particularly those of journalist Tony Esposito who was there to cover it for speedonthewater.com—without a hitch and earned raves from everyone involved.

Story by Tony Esposito

 

The three-day Atlantic City Festival of Speed culminated with exciting, lead-swapping, air-grabbing offshore boat racing last Sunday, but the real story isn't so much the race results as it is the impact the weekend of high-speed hardware may have had on the future of the sport through a first-rate example of how cities and race promoters working together can deliver high-quality, high-performance entertainment and a boost to the local economy.

"Amazing," "unbelievable," "a rush," and other superlatives that will never be read on a family boating site is how a group from the  Wounded Warrior Project described their day on the water with members of the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club.
The club hosted some 45 veterans and their families for boat rides and a reception in their honor as part of the Atlantic City Festival of Speed today. It's nothing new for NJPPC to give back to their community through events like Shore Dreams for Kids, a day of boating for physically and mentally challenged children and adult held each July.

NJPPC Kicks Off Atlantic City Festival of Speed https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/6/njppc-kicks-off-atlantic-city-festival-of-speed Story by Matt Trulio 

 

For 16 years the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club has kicked off its season with a Poker Run to Atlantic City, but this year took on extra meaning with the run launching the "Atlantic City Festival of Speed." The three-day event, which began with today's poker run, hosted by the Golden Nugget Casino, culminates with the Atlantic City Grand Prix offshore race this Sunday.

During last year's Atlantic City Poker Run, photographer Tim Sharkey had to battle with the weather. That wasn't a problem today, All photos courtesy/copyright Tim Sharkey/Sharkey Images.
 
Extra meaning as well because a majority of club members were hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy. While the area continues to dig out, many have just returned to their homes after months of renovation and folks here are ready to cut loose and let off a little steam.

The fleet of 35 boats ranged from Tom Menshouse's 29-foot Scarab to a 51-foot Outerlimits owned by Tom Tucci. There's a 40-foot Skater—the former  Read More ...

New York Poker Run Image Sales to Benefit Wounded Warriors Project https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/6/new-york-poker-run-image-sales-to-benefit-wounded-warriors-project Story by Matt Trulio

Last weekend, photographer Tim Sharkey shot the New York City Poker Run—revived after a four-year hiatus—on the Hudson River. Among the many images he captured was one of several boats from the run docked at Liberty Landing in Jersey City, N.J., with the Freedom Tower, built where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centers stood until the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2011, in the background.

Proceeds from the sales of this Tim Sharkey Image will go to the Wounded Warriors Project. Photo courtesy/copyright Tim Sharkey/Sharkey Images.

 

"The Freedom Tower was in the background on a bright sunny day, the event hadn't been run since 2009 and the whole thing said to me, 'We're back!'" said Sharkey. "I saw it all as a positive sign not just for the poker run, which had 25 boats, but of all the momentum to come."

In Riviera Beach, Fla., a few weeks ago researching a feature for the upcoming July/August issue of Speed On The Water magazine, I sat down for an extensive interview with Gary Stray, the team manager and head rigger for the Miss GEICO offshore racing team. During our interview, Stray showed me a scale (1:12) pleasure-version model of the 47-foot catamaran he designed and will build.

Dan Sharkey's 80th Memorial Day https://www.timsharkey.com/blog/2013/5/dan-sharkeys-80th-memorial-day chosin_final Everyone's Cousin Tish Ferguson really knows how to put things into perspective.

 Here she honors my father Dan Sharkey.

A really great read ....

 

 

Uncle Dan's 80th Memorial Day - "A Song for Our Faithful & Loyal Marine"

"If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘ Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA."

 

Artist: Lee Greenwood 
Song: Proud To Be An American

 

In the winter of 2005 my incredible neighbor Pete Marone - a friend, local hero and a former mayor of Pt. Pleasant, NJ - spent hours sharing his astonishing personal history and experiences highlighting the time he served in the U.S Army as a member of 3rd Infantry Division's 50th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion during the Korean War. His photo album from the 1950's was like no other.

 

Daniel Sharkey formerly of Pt. Pleasant Beach and a proud U.S. Marine is my mom's older brother and at the time of this conversation my uncle had been my relative for 47 years.  It was the first time in my life I had heard that my uncle was a survivor of the "Heroic Ordeal" of the Korean War called the "Chosin Reservoir Campaign." 

 

Thanks to David Oxenford's history class at Pt. Pleasant Beach High School, I already knew the brutal and riveting history of how approximately 20,000 allied troops (17,000 of them U.S. Marines like my uncle) were attacked by 120,000 Communist Chinese forces between November 26th and December 11th 1950 during sub-zero winter conditions. 

This military effort became known as one of the great examples of bravery & teamwork of our time.  Against all odds they escorted 91,000 North Korean refugees to freedom.  How could I not know that my own uncle was actually there? 

 

Later we would realize that the "Greatest Generation" took decades processing these indelible experiences and images in the quite places of their own hearts and minds.  Their stories and challenges were often buried beneath their exterior and could only be revealed when they were ready.  Mayor Marone was ready before Uncle Dan, but once my uncle got to that place there was no stopping him and the good that would follow. 

 

A powerful feeling evolved as my uncle filled in the gaps of our family's living history which inspired me to leverage my keyboard to put a soft light on my uncle's journey so my own kids could understand and see how the contributions of the elder heroes in our family made a difference to the United States of America every time they were called upon to do so.  

 

In May 2005 Uncle Dan was honored as a Grand Marshal of the Pt. Pleasant Memorial Day Parade along with all the members of the "NJ Chapter of the Chosin Few." 

It was moving and emotional as fellow citizens in my little town honored the "Chosin" who died in battle at the Reservoir - and saluted the survivors - "The Chosin Few." 

 

Folklore has it that every other person along the parade route who had freckles that glorious day was absolutley a cousin!

Mixed in with other amazing local military heroes was my Uncle Dan (Marines - Korean War); in a shiny blue car was "Tis' Himself" Uncle John Conaghan (U.S. Navy - WWII), and there he was "our family's Happy Birthday Man" Uncle Walter Gunsiorowski himself (Merchant Marines - WWII) smiling and waving from a fancy two-seat red convertible.  

 

Cousin Michael Conaghan (U.S. Navy - Vietnam War) delighted the masses on guitar accompanied by his dad on violin during the actual memorial ceremony at our Community Park - the same way they always did when invited to do so.   

 

On Memorial Day that year and in the years that followed, our family built floats to honor the sacrifices of the brave men & women whose fight for freedom required them to give all.  We created gathering posts for celebration, reflection and storytelling as listeners of all ages found their way to our back yards.

 

We watched with pride as Uncle Dan and other survivors of the Chosin Reservoir made their way to Wall Street to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange.  His children, nieces and nephews stood shoulder-to-shoulder with pride as we literally danced with joy when Uncle Dan Sharkey - the son of our grandparents who were Irish immigrants - was elected and sworn in as President of the NJ Chapter of the Chosin Few.  It was a "bravo - well done moment" of the highest caliber.

 

Memorial Day reminds me of one of the gifts I cherish most about my uncle and that is he has always given the men and women in the armed services who lost their lives a consistent voice and a permanent place at our family's table.

He speaks for them and about them in our communities.  Uncle Dan fights with and for them when they need help; and when he believes they deserve to be remembered, honored and memorialized in a manner that matches their commitment to our nation, my uncle gets it done.     

 

His work ethic and consistent values which include love of family, a tireless commitment to others, courage and a deep love of country has influenced the lives of countless people.  

For the fun of it, I've attached his 80th birthday video which shows that Uncle Dan's first circle share the same assessment of him and his life's work that is posted here. 

 

The video entitled, "Dan Sharkey - An Incredible Journey" ** was a surprise from his daughter Kathleen and her husband John Greco during his 80th birthday celebration last summer.  An overwhelming surprise it was! There was not a dry eye in the house!

 

How Uncle Dan chose to live and the example he set after serving in the Korean War certainly helped our family understand the true meaning of Lee Greenwood's lyrics and refrain below:

 

"And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me."

 

We will never forget any of them, Uncle Dan.  God Bless you on your 80th Memorial Day… and thank you so much.

 

You have always honored our family and the tenets of Semper Fidelis by simply being yourself.       

 

Utmost respect & love,

Tish
