Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost
"Ha...thats the difference between the ruler and"
Not really, chef. I was just using the ruler to check the distance, and routing it (instead of a ruler) from R40 through Oyster Creek Channel, which is the preferred one on my chart since Double Creek would force a shoal crossing, actually gives a run of just under 5nm from the R40 mark to the outside of the inlet.
Add the notices about shoaling, changes, marks being moved...It's easy to know what to expect, if you're comfortable with maps and charts. (I actually know someone who swears they can't read a road map, the image makes no sense to them.) My only confusion was over the remarks about a submerged jetty, since the chart shows only one of those, to the south of the inlet. The main jetty forming part of the inlet on the north side shouldn't be a big surprise to anyone, unless wreckers moved the light on the end.
Why do I think those fellows are going to take up golf next month?
