Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

Yes, it was weird because there was not even a lot of wind and the ocean itself was fairly calm but both Jones and FI inlet had these large, potential washing machine type waves caused by the GSB pouring out into the Atlantic.
The waves were against the tide which seemed to pile them up in height as they slowed down.
As we neared the ocean we saw nearly 50 boats anchored in Toe Nail Cove as they ate lunch and watched the white water out the inlet. We went straight on out and apparently lived.
