Re: St Marys inlet

Well, a 25 footer with an outboard on a motor mount might not be best suited for this sailing area then. Don't think I'm going to feel comfortable trying to tackle that inlet with the outboard popping out of the water. Bummer.

I walk along the inlet fairly frequently and, at least from what I can see from land, it usually seems quite benign. But of course I can't see all the way out to the end of the jetties where it might be quite different.

I know sometimes when I'm sailing near the inlet that the current is so strong that I have a negative ground speed. A little disconcerting to be flying through the water leaving a substantial wake, but looking over at land and see that you are actually moving backwards.
