There has been a large easterly swell running, and although it diminished by the 19th, and the impounded water
was ebbing out of the river mouth, one sees those kinds of swells at many of the barred entrances. There's a pic somewhere of a fishing boat
that, desperate to go fishing
, got sunk by a larger wave than those. The boat
was re-floated and may still be in service
, but the repairs
ran into the tens of thousands, possibly exceeding $100,00 before it was serviceable. Most barred entries are posted with a number of warnings. That is a don't mess with mother nature sort of video, at best.
