Cam,

Having kept my old Islander 28 in Barngat Bay for 10 years I can count the number of time I went in the inlet in the afternoon. Out in the AM is usually never a problem, but the afternoon with the SE onshore breeze and the tide heading out leads to 10-15 ft breakers across the inlet onto those jetties or the old submerged one.

We hit it on a perfect day and were prepared to go on to Atlantic city tilll 9 PM. I was prepared to go back out the inlet as i came in if it looked ominous...it was gentle as apussycat....go figure. Its reputation however is well deserved.

Dave
