Meanwhile, back to the log...Wasn't making any in either the AV3 or the MC, so I desperately headed around to the ShrinkyStink to see if some could be had there. No such luck.
Oddly, the water just outside of ShrinkyStinky in front of the boat ramp is much rougher than out in the MC. It's as though the chop is bouncing off a vertical cliff and then amplifying, but there are no vertical cliffs to be found for at least a half a mile, and the angles don't make sense for them to have an effect. The dangerous and scary MC had a flatness factor about equivalent to GI's flatness factor today, while AV3 and SS were 100% smooth.
