Hi Clark
I have not dived the wreck New Jersey yet, it rest in 335fsw very close to 
the Virginia which rest in 390fsw. I have added several NG list to this 
email as I know of several divers who have dived those wrecks and are 
members of those list and I'm sure they will contact you privately. I do 
know that these wrecks lay in high current water and that just recently 
I've been told a group tried to dive one of those wrecks and had to be 
rescued by another boat other than the one they were diving from, those 
wrecks are best dived in the spring and fall when the current is not as 
strong I been told by the local Captains.

Hope this helps with your story
Capt JT
