During our last Speaker Series event of the year, Dan Crabbe will provide an overview of the Toms River Seaport Society and its Maritime Museum on Water Street. Then Erik Weber will dive into past nautical ages and uses of the Toms River from the pre-colonial era to the present.

Dan Crabbe has been a board member of the Toms River Seaport Society for the last 15 years and was president for nine years. Presently, he serves as treasurer. He and his wife, Nancy, are avid sailors, racing and cruising on all sizes of boats. He is a member of the Cruising Club of America and has been an officer of several sailing organizations. Dan co-authored the book “Chasing Roosters” with Gary Jobson, and he was inducted into the Barnegat Bay Sailing Hall of Fame in 2019.

Involved in local history since around the same time, he was hired as director for Toms River Seaport Society & Maritime Museum.

This free event will be held via Zoom.
