Saturday was a cloudy, overcast day. But that did not stop us from going out to explore.
One of the places we went was a sandy outcrop called the “Sore Thumb” which is on the north side of Fire Island Inlet. This small peninsula is a popular spot for 4-wheelers to drive out to, and it forms a cove that a great spot for boats to anchor during the summer months. Saturday we mapped a large area of the cove with bottom contours using our new Garmin side imaging sonar. On this cloudy April day, we had the whole place to ourselves.
Here is a great drone video of Sore Thumb:
This Youtube video shows some of drama that happened a few years ago when a large number of boats rafted up in this area during a busier time of the season. It appears that the boats were not far enough into the cove; and some the current of Fire Island Inlet caused some mayhem.
