Hello everybody so My girl and I took my new 310 Sundancer "Luna Sea" up the canal and out the Manasquan inlet, well, just because it was a beautiful day and we played follow the boat in front of us. There were absolutly no issues in spite of what I seemed to read about going in and out could be treacherous, Im sure depending on weather conditions. Well once we got out there were big swells but many feet between them so no problem there. Man I was very impressed with the seaworthiness of this boat, I didnt have to use the trim tabs or anything, (just the stern trim to keep her level, but what a smooth ride. Hats off to a 10' beam. (Ya know I read an article about Formula's and how there steep deadrise and top heavyness causes them to ride side saddle, dunno how true but my Sea Ray definatly rode true with no pitch, roll or yaw. So with smiles on our faces, and good weather all around , the water was open and deep so we headed north and recognized Asbury Park, where we had a beer and then turned around to head back in., maybe a few miles. Only other time I was on the open Ocean was a trip to Nantucket on a Ferry, and everybody got sick. This time it was exilarating, loved every minute of it. So now thinking Id like to head up to NYC one day, soon, and wondering how is it , going around Sandy Hook, any tips or things I should know. I would appreciate any and all answers. One last thing I did make a trek once from Liberty Landing Marina to Highlands (Bahrs restaraunt) in my friends 30 ' Baja and halfway between the Verranzo bridge and Sandy Hook the water got hugely open and giant swells that in spite of his bow being up waves came right over the bow and we took on much water. was a bit unsettleling but mostly we just got wet. Up much higher in the Sea Ray but dont feel like going thru that again! Anyway, thats it. Advice , or tips please. and thanks!
