Friday, November 28, 2014


Sea of Abaco: Keith of Dive Abaco reports it’s "rocking and rolling, and not recommended".
Whale Cay: Nothing heard.
North Man-O-War: Susan at Mermaid Point reports elephants on the horizon, a 3-4’ roll with a 1-2’ wind chop.
South Man-War: Neil at Ruma Kami reports it’s breaking all across the reef.
Tilloo Cut: Nothing heard.
Little Harbour and North Bar: Different Drummer went out this morning, reports the LITTLE HARBOUR cut is do-able, and there are 3-4’ seas outside; Wellington at Pete’s Pub adds that it’s very rough offshore.

Gordie at Cigatoo reminded us last winter that, on our charts and gps, 1 degree is 60 nautical miles, 1 minute is 1/60th or 6,000.076 feet, and one second is 101 feet. Thanks, Gordie!

Thanks so much to our volunteers who give these reports!

Please remember that we are just trying to help out with these reports. You are the captain of your vessel so the decision will be yours alone.
Updates thanks to Jill P.
