Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost
Honest, Dave, the little ruler on the computer said 4nm from the channel mark out to midinlet, ignoring the significant curves in the channel. Either way...I would hate to see a parade trying to turn around on that run. I'd be more afraid of the inevitable bozo, broadside and drifting in the wind, than an empty channel. And if there was a string of them (what IS the plural for bozo, anyway?) the way they collect at simple bridge openings...Nuh uh, I can see the USCG wanting very much to avoid any chance of that.
No doubt in coming weeks someone will bump into the tower and find that boat. Or some enterprising folks with a Whaler and a fishfinder will go out and find it sooner. The charts don't show TOO many Greyhound busses parked out there, and the water isn't really deep enough to hide them for long.
