    Why would you ever want to take a 17ft boat anywhere outside the 9mile bank? Either you have NO respect for the ocean or you are just dumb! Sure the weather can be grease in the morning but it can turn on a dime, YOU WILL get your ass kicked trying to get home or even worse take a nasty swell that will fuckin sink you! Never disrespect the ocean and weather! Be smart and don’t get yourself killed!

    My stupid ass has taken a 17' boat to the 43 many times. Had my ass kicked a few of those times, but NEVER ONCE have I felt unsafe. I know my boat though, and what it's capable of. A17' boat actually isn't too bad, they usually fit right in the trough and roll with the swell. Won't be a fast ride, but not exactly a dangerous one. The wind chop would have kept me home though, that's just torture! Lol


    Congrats on the fish guys! Know your vessel, be safe, and fish on!

    Since you're so passionate about it you can always buy me a bigger boat.

    I grew up surfing and diving. I'm pretty decent at being able to read swell and wind and know how to deal with condition and read reports/buoys. You going to tell me not to surf big waves because I don't respect the ocean? This isn't our first go around with being in the ocean or dealing with waves and winds. We are all or have been lifeguards. Being in and on the ocean isn't something new to us. We respect the ocean and know that it doesn't give a shit about us. Call it what you want, but we got the fish we were after and we got them while being safe. But like I said, if you are that concerned then I'll take a Parker 2320.

    Yeah man there was one day where we turned around knowing it wasn't a good idea but other than that we've been fine. I know the limits and can work it to get out nice and slow when needed. The wind definitely wasn't fun but it was never a safety concern.

    Thanks!

    A wave that can sink you at the 43 ... can also sink you at the 9 miles bank. The issue is not so much how far out you are, but how prepared you are for an emergency. Getting sunk at the 9 miles bank with no radio and EPIRB is just as bad as being sunk at the 43 with no radio and EPIRB, either way you're not getting help for days and will probably die. On the other hand, should you have both on hand, getting sunk at the 43 might be better because it's a parking lot right now and so more people will hear your distress call than the 9 miles bank.

    With water temperature around 72 to 75, I'd consider it relatively safe to go off shore on a small boat, as long as your emergency equipment are in order and the weather is nice. The coast guard may need a few more hours to get to you at the 43 over the 9 miles bank, but that shouldn't be an issue as long as you have a life vest on. Late fall and winter is a different story, of course.

    Absolutely. Either way its too far to swim. No EPIRB but I plan on getting one soon. Always checking to make sure the radio works throughout the day. Always have wetsuits, mask, snorkels, floats, fins, spearguns, flares, whistles, dry bag, and a small mirror onboard. We make do with what we got. We take precautions but still send it.

    Hah! Ski boats kick ass

    Have a 16 ft. aluminum skiff for 30 years. If the weather is right I'd go 20M out. Mostly stick within 14 M which I feel is safe. Last weekend forecasted crap conditions.

    You guys are young, dumb and full of cum. Have fun.

    I gotta agree with Frank. I'm fortunate in that I can afford the larger boat. But even when I was younger and couldn't, I never took my 17 footer out that far. Just plain dumb, no matter how much on the water experience one has. Even a former lifeguard.

    Just my .02, not worth much more than that. Glad everybody made it home safe.

    How long ago was that? I wouldn't take a 17 feet boat off shore 20 years ago, either. These days, it's different, both because of much better weather predictions, and because of much better emergency services and communication equipment.
