Have you ever seen ocean water during a storm????

I hope some of you Pa, Md, De people will back me up on this...Run up the C&D canal in Elkton Md when there is four or five sportfisherman boats coming thru

I would bet you could find more than one six foot hole in the water

And yes caused by nothing more than boat wakes.
