Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Aaron,

The last time I was in the Marquesses was about 15 years ago. At that time there was a deepwater cut from the northwest side that led into a relatively large, deep pocket in Mooney Harbor. The water at high tide in the cut was about 5 to 7 feet deep and the pocket was 20 feet deep. There were loads of monster cuda in the pocket, and a fair number of lobster. Is the cut still there, or has it filled in? I was thinking seriously about anchoring up there on the way to the Dry Tortugas--just as a stop-over point.

Cheers,

Gary
