Some of the stats about the crap in the bay as a result of the storm made me laugh... should be interesting to see how it unfolds.

There's been talk of dredging the lagoons by us in LEH but that's a local thing not State sponsored, there now trying to figure out who's gonna pay for it assome lagoons need it and others don't.

Doubt it will happen but you never know. They've been dredging BI for years and it just fills back in. Any reason the bay would be different? We went out of Manasquan today and Barnegat last week (departing from a lagoon in Silverton). Stuck to the traditional routes and it wasn't an issue at 20 knots. Then again, I know at least one first hand account of one who wasn't so lucky. He hit a few submerged objects idling from Point to TR. We didn't mark anything odd but did see a lot of debris floating and other anomalies, i.e., houses, boats, etc settled in the bay and surrounding marsh areas. The "buoy boat" was out and about today. Hopefully working on fixing the channel markers and moving if need be. We didn't take the time to watch them and see what they were actually doing.

After what I experienced in these last two trips, personally, I think they should address submerged hazards such as houses, boats, cars, etc, remark the channels accordingly, and rechart the bay.
