And yes, this side of the lake is notorious for being akin to the mid-Atlantic. I Stay upriver unless I am in a big boat. If I am in the tooner, I keep north of Pt Venture.

Regardless, the story is tragic.

Rick is a good guy and this is a terrible tragedy..
My prayers go out to the family.

As for the wakes,Travis while 60 miles long is also
only .5 - 1.5miles wide in most places and all the wakes get amplified,the fact there are 40-60ft cruisers and yachts running around doesnt help..
Thr crossing between Devils Cove and Carlos and Charlies
is rougher than a lot of ocean inlets I have been thru.
