I believe you're correct.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well I reckon its all yours Seady ... I know Plum Gut is correct cos well, mmm, shuffle of feet, I cheated, sort of.

When I did a google of "tide race whirlpools usa" one of the pics that came up was a tale about how running that race through Plum Gut makes the trip to Shelter Island a bit quicker.

Some fella by the name of Bene505 posted it on some forum called SailNet back in 2009. Not sure why but the names sound vaguely familiar to me.

btw .... I've never had that happen before which is almost surprising.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The second picture sure did look like the "tea kettle" light between Orient Pt and Plum Island. I've been through there, but never experienced a whirlpool, maybe because I don't like to run the Gut when the tidal currents at at the high end.

I have experienced eddies that influenced the boat (heeling and jawing) in the Cape Cod Canal when the current was up to 7 kts. At least I was going with the current (11.5 kts over the bottom) and the railroad bridge stayed up!

tdw -- almost. Seaduction beat you to it.

It was a very calm day when we motored through and saw the whirlpool. Likely you won't see it otherwise. It must have been 20 feet across and an inch or two lower in the middle. We circled back to see it again. It's a bit rare to have a perfectly flat sea there.

Regards,
Brad

That's how I got my win. the boat in Seaduction's picture looked like it is named "PRIDE OF T..." so I googled that, with the word Lake and Castle.

You use the hints on the page and the tools within reach.

Brad

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Errkk ... I didn't see SeaDuction's first post, only the second one referring to the Orient Light. Mind you, that was enough to see that he had it.
