It sure was/is nasty "out east". We're in Lake Montauk. I've seen wind at anchor before, but this has a lot of gusts to it from the side, our boat's rocking and heeling some. (Not much pitching, we have about 100 yards of fetch right now.)
Have fun exploring the island.
I'll be scarce this week. If you are in Montauk next weekend, I'll buy you a beer or two.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing, anchors, batteries, rode length, fridge-or-not, freezer-or-not, and guns-on-board. I don't know why. It's a mystery!
