The Navesink River used to be a major oyster supplier and garveys of this type were used for working the oyster beds.
While at the moment there is no active oystering, Monmouth County Friends of Clearwater operates a replica oyster garvey that is used for public sails and exhibition. In the summer the garvey public sails are the easiest way to enjoy the Navesink. The Adam Hyler is a regular visitor at the NMHA Rendezvous.
The crewbook is updated to reflect changes in Pete's Banjo.
