Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost

From the charts...that whole area looks outright dangerous for a boat that size. Or for anything bigger than a bass boat.

And it looks like a 4nm run from the point where the channel exits Barnegat Bay to the inlet itself, so unless the USCG put up a couple of picket boats THAT far in to turn back traffic, they'd really have a cluster(ahem) of boats trying to get down the channel and turn back, if they closed the inlet to allow salvage or survey. Looks like a real nasty run in even the best of wx.
