Not sure how you paste in a pic like that, but if you look at the Sailflow data from Kings Point, it shows about 50. From LaGuardia Airport, it does not even show a peak -- instead the gust line suddenly appears way up high heading downwards. I heard at the time that 62.5 knots was recorded in Manhasset Bay -- have not been down to my club to see what data they have. I've been in 45 knots several times, and this was something completely different.
