Capt. Andy Grossman, who owns the Brigantine business, also runs a beach tow service for 4x4 vehicles that occasionally get stuck in the soft sand.

The beach tow company 4X4 Assist also gets calls from people in regular cars who got in too deep trying to navigate the beach sand and drive to the water's edge, even though cars aren't allowed on the beach.

Somewhere along the way, the Captain started taking photos of these beached cars and now they have been compiled in their own calendar.

Here's January's beached car...

The calendars have been such a hit, they sold out of the first print run and had to order more.

The calendar comes in two sizes: 8 1/2 x 11 inches for $25 and 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches for $20; it's an additional $5 to have it shipped. The proceeds are being donated to True Spirit Coalition, a local organization which helps provide meals to local families.

If you'd like to order one, be sure to get your order in before the end of the year, as the tackle shop is closed in January and February. For more information, call (609) 264-0440.
