Re: Informal, unscientific survey

In the Northport ,Centerport ,Huntington, Lloyd harbor area which in all reality is a pretty small area of perhaps 5 to 7 miles on the water

We have the most absurd marine police presence outside of a war zone

1.Eatons Neck CG station WHICH MAKES SENSE and one would think this could cover things pretty well

2.Northport harbor master/police/fireboat

3.Centerport harbor master/police

4.Ashroken harbor master/police It a different word for Eaton's neck

5. Lloyd Harbor harbor master/police

6. Huntington harbor harbor master/police

7. Suffolk county marine police which operate out of Huntington harbor

Now in terms of help and rescue the Suffolk county marine police have a fabulous record and the CG is pretty dam good

After that ever weekend inside a fairly small body of water all these departments patrol ALL the time

The only real action I see is the small speed trap at the tip of sand city

It never seems to control the excessive wakes by large powerboats inside the harbor were the speed limit is 40 MPH but common sense would call your wake excessive when you stuff the bow of my 29' boat

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
