My grandfather won the Bahr’s shark tournament by catching an enormous hammerhead shark on July 8, 1984 – the day I was born. If it had been a Mako shark my mom would have named me after it. Instead, I acquired the nickname ‘Hammerhead’ among my family, and my mom decided to name me after a Fleetwood Mac song.
Here are some boating-related photos I dug up. The first few taken in the Bimini Islands, the rest were taken in or near Monmouth County, NJ.

Hammerhead – but not the one I’m named after.
Just some casual shark hunting.
The Sea Bright bridge, NJ. The Bait/Tackle shop is a Dunkin’ Donuts now.

Barak – Rumson, NJ. John’s get-up IS the late 70s. Hope I don’t get in trouble for this one.

You can just tell the weather was perfect that day.
BARAK II, the second Bertram.
Hammerhead. Raising hell on the Bertram at a young age.
