Yesterday was the perfect day to interview Tony Frisina, the owner of Frisini Motorsports, which builds the Sonic, Hypersonic, Frisini catamaran and Spectre catamaran lines. That’s because thanks to Hurricane Sandy, which was due to slam the Jersey Shore with all its might a few hours after we spoke, had him housebound. He was trapped at his home in Barnegat Bay.
“Right now, we’re all forced to stay in,” said Frisina. “No one is allowed on the roads after 4 p.m. Between Friday and Sunday, we moved like 65 boats into our Arrow Marine Services facility in Toms River [N.J.]. We store 125 boats there. I could have taken in more boats, but by noon on Sunday I had to start turning people away. We didn’t have enough space or equipment to store more boats on.”
