Manasquan is actually one of the easier/better inlet in NJ.
Maybe I'm being ridiculous. But realize most cruisers usually only run a particular inlet (except their home inlet) once, twice, maybe three or four times in a lifetime. I've had scary moments (on relatively calm days) in a number of big, well-marked, heavily travelled inlets on the U.S. East Coast
when it suddenly became apparent a big ground swell was coming ashore with me.
Manasquan looked too tight and too tricky to me from the chart. So I stayed away. But, as you say, maybe I'm being ridiculous.
