Montauk Monster

I came across this beauty yesterday afternoon in Fisher's Island Sound, 1.5 miles SSE of Stonington, Point .5 miles W of Napatree Point.

Re: Montauk Monster

sea turtle?

my racing crew saw a 6 footer a month ago in raritan bay, my father and brother have seen dolphins off coney island, and I have seen seals by sandy hook as well. Great white sharks are being seen regularly off cape cod beaches now.

looks like sea life is finally coming back, it's a good thing...

Two weeks ago on our trip to the Sound we spent two nights Ted up to the bulkhead of the Montauk Marine Basin ( $2 ft) . It is where the fishing fleet comes in and also gasses up. We saw in two days 2 6 foot great whites and a larger tiger amongst some of the catches.

They're part of the 'Kraken' family.
Usually appear after too much rum.

Dunno, but the "floaters" I saw when I lived in Mill Basin as a kid in the seventies weren't very reassuring.
