Why would I tak the ocean side instead of the sound side? Doesn't the ocean side have lots of speed restrictions if inside the inlets and if outside gets really big?

We have always run right up the Sound through Plum Gut... Depending on the water conditions you can run 50's with no problem.... Indy has pretty much summed up the sound conditions.... As far a s fuel - not sure the best port, Port Jeff has a long channel and i'm sure boat traffic will be oh so much fun this weekend!

Watch for an easterly wind...it'll be a *****, and you'll know it once you pass under the Throgs Neck.
If its flat enough... stick the LI side.

Fueling in Manhasset Bay?? 87 octacne once you come around plum point at Capri... gas dock is right there.
93 Octane at LaMottas... all the way west, and then north at the big red/white umbrella. Stay in the markers and out of the moorings.

ENJOY!

Norwalk Cove Marina has a good gas dock not too far off the beaten path, it's directly across from Huntington Harbor on the CT side.

Dude...you're in for a light SW blow today, absolutely perfect conditions for a ride out east. I am totally jealous, have fun and enjoy every second of that ride.

I was thinking of you yesterday as I was well into the misery of my work. The trip up the Sound is a favorite of mine, east end of Long Island rules too. All I could think of is continue to work hard and I'll be into another boat some year.

Came back today... man was that rough. Could only run 40 and was getting a really good pounding on mixed up water with a somewhat westward bound swell.

Here's the weather that says the waves are less than 1.5' http://www.wunderground.com/MAR/buoy/44039.html

But, man those were not 1.5'! Maybe they measure differently?

3.5hrs total time moving averaging about 45mph.

My friends who are driving back from montauk haven't even left yet!

Time for a nap.
