Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

I figured you might know Brad and family. I guess you and Lucas surf the ditch a bit, eh?

I asked about FI Inlet as the only time I came out that way it must have been in full ebb and the harmless 3' swell had grown to 10' breaking waves in the race of tide leaving the Great Shallow Bay. That was in a MacGregor 26' S sailboat with a measly 8 HP motor pushing us along. Some white knuckle moments I will not forget. Once outside the 'race' and breakers the 3' swells were entirely benign.
