Last weeked I was in the Silver Beach area with some friends that live there.It was a calm day and from the beach the water or waves didn't look to bad. I would like to plan a trip with my 18foot jet boat,would I be alight? I have just heard stories of how bad it can be. Thanks.

I guess if you didnt venture very far from the launch and make sure its a nice day with no wind, you might be o.k. I've been out there on nice sunny days and 20 minutes later the waves are over my head on a 30' proline!! and thats only a mile off shore!!

Thats the one, Bring ALL your safety gear, registration, make sure you are totally legal thats why I run mufflers in my v-drive, make sure you don't drink until AFTER you are done driving the boat, then just smile when they pull you over and say F^&* you very much !!!!:)hand

I took my 10' GW Invader out there last year. If it is a calm day, the rollers between the piers will be your biggest obstacle. They can be intimidating. I've been toying with taking my 18' Hydrostream out there on a calm day. What is holding me back, is not sure if I have enough gas tank for it. With the closest ramps being a 30 minute troll out to the pierheads, I don't know if my 16 gallons will get me there and back with much time to play.
