xort, in the northeast there is LOTS of run-off from the rivers and the coast. Lots of fertilizer making lots of plankton blooms, too. Visibility may run from 4-40' but calling it "good"...we natives tend to call six foot visibility "good" up here. Ain't gonna be like Abacos.

You will want a double watch cap or wet suit hood on your head, so it doesn't hurt when you keep banging it against the hull. And at that point, six foot vis is about four feet more than you need. (G)
