Great job Marine Bureau! I guess someone should tell Steve Levy and Commish Dormer how valuable and truly necessary your command is.

are these numbskills going to repay the cost to rescue them for having the brilliant idea to head out to see in 39 foot run-a-bout when seas are 8-10 feet?

8-10 foot waves don't form out of nowhere, these landlubber dumbos need to check the small craft warnings issued by the same agency that had the courage and ability to get them to safety.

As a licensed captain, I agree totally,except for the fact that today's weather called for 3-4 ft, with no small craft issued until mid morning tomorrow. NOAA forecasts are notorious for being wrong. Many times, you don't know the real story until you are out there, and by then it's too late. I also doubt that a 39 foot boat can be considered a run a bout. I run a 30 ft. twin diesel, and it can handle 3 - 5 foot fine. The print out for the bouy 20 miles from FI Inlet shows the highest seas to be not much more than 5 ft. With a south south west wind, it probably pushed the water higher as it approached the shore, where these boats probably hugged the shore to ferry up to Greenport as a group. Just bad timing, but a great job by the Marine Bureau ! Great to know you guys are out there !

It is nice to see them getting some good press. There have been some fine officers in marine bureau over the years.

Those wingnuts at the Woodmere Bay Yacht have no clue about boating!!!! Dopey bastards.. With all the money those members have, they should pool it together and buy some COMMON SENSE!!!!! WBYC is the laughing stock of boating community. WBYC went down the drain when they let go the only smart person there: The black caretaker!!!

A little dramatic, don't you think?

Sounds like the inexperienced boaters are getting ready for the weekend. Keep up the funny stunts and give us more stories to read.

While it may be true that the boaters should have known the conditions or that the inexperienced boaters are out and going to continue for the holiday weekend, I think it's important to thank our police who are the heros and who risk their own safety for those of the public. Way to go Marine Bureau!!! My hats off to you!!
Know the community supports you even if your County Executive doesn't. Shame on you, Levy for trying to put the public in harm by cutting our police force.

What a great surgeon Mrs Cassidy had in the ER at Good Samaritan hospital. Dr. Da Silva was so nice and he did such a good job. He is a great plastic surgeon.
