11-01-1995 Noise Unlimited report on boat noise

NPS removes references to tests of Jet Ski noise at full throttle in a 17 year old study of police jet skis in New Jersey and attempts to pass this off as a study of Drakes Bay Oyster Company motor boats in the dEIS.

September of 1995,  Noise Unlimited was requested by the State of New Jersey, Department of Law and Public Safety Division of State Police, Marine Law Enforcement Bureau, to test and report on the noise levels of boats.

Engines were tested at idle with the microphone 5 feet above the water line and 2 feet behind the transom of the boat as well as at full throttle 50 feet away.
