  1. All very good points. My point is simply that our perception of very ****ty rough conditions is influenced by many variables (i.e we are bouncing around on the boat in 2 footers and the bow of the boat is bouncing up and down much higher than the actual wave height b/c use are going up and down the troughs, the lake looks nasty, it's windy, etc etc) and we instantly convert our perception into what we perceive the wave is in feet. I think the buoy data is accurate. If we were floating horizontal and the boat just went up and down without the bow bouncing up and down I think a 2' wave would be perceived as a 2' wave. However, when you add the variable that your boat is bouncing all over and your bow is riding the wave up and down like a roller coaster hill, you perceive it as much much rougher. I have no idea how to explain this in physics - and don't really care - but the distance you are travelling up and down the waves I think tricks your brain into thinking you are riding super high waves. I only fished one time in my life in conditions that were so rough that I thought I was literally going to sink my boat and the central buoy data was just barely over 4'........ I cannot imagine your experience of fishing in true12' seas Chris
  2. From the National Buoy Data Center website on how wave height is calculated: Detailed Wave Summary (Realtime data files only) #YY MM DD hh mm WVHT SwH SwP WWH WWP SwD WWD STEEPNESS APD MWD #yr mo dy hr mn m m sec m sec - degT - sec degT 2014 09 11 17 00 0.6 0.4 5.6 0.4 4.3 SE MM N/A 4.2 134 WVHT Significant Wave Height is the average height (meters) of the highest one-third of the waves during a 20 minute sampling period. SwH Swell height is the vertical distance (meters) between any swell crest and the succeeding swell wave trough. SwP Swell Period is the time (usually measured in seconds) that it takes successive swell wave crests or troughs pass a fixed point. WWH Wind Wave Height is the vertical distance (meters) between any wind wave crest and the succeeding wind wave trough (independent of swell waves). WWP Wind Wave Period is the time (in seconds) that it takes successive wind wave crests or troughs to pass a fixed point. SwD The direction from which the swell waves at the swell wave period (SWPD) are coming. The units are degrees from true North, increasing clockwise, with North as 0 (zero) degrees and East as 90 degrees. WWD The direction from which the wind waves at the wind wave period (WWPD) are coming. The units are degrees from true North, increasing clockwise, with North as 0 (zero) degrees and East as 90 degrees. STEEPNESS Wave steepness is the ratio of wave height to wave length and is an indicator of wave stability. When wave steepness exceeds a 1/7 ratio; the wave becomes unstable and begins to break. APD Average Wave Period is the average period (seconds) of the highest one-third of the wave observed during a 20 minute sampling period. MWD The direction from which the waves at the dominant period (DPD) are coming. The units are degrees from true North, increasing clockwise, with North as 0 (zero) degrees and East as 90 degrees. See the Wave Measurements section.
  3. I disagree - I think it's the anglers (me included) that overstate what they think the wave height truly is. A true 2' wave is pretty damn tall and I think many anglers fishing in 2' waves think they are fishing in 4 footers Just my two pennies, Chris
  4. Jimski - you have not replied. Could you please confirm if any use of a spray gun is a DEC violation, or only if you are a body shop? Certainly you must have facts to back up your original post
  5. Great video - thanks for sharing! Chris
  6. Are you sure on this? I thought that only applies if you are a body shop. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Kudos to Matt and Rick for setting this up......you guys rock It's going to be a great time - it has already been fun meeting some of the guys just at sign up! Good luck men/women/kids....tight lines and safe boating Chris

  13. Awesome video my man - great action
  14. I'll take them - I sent you a PM Thanks
  15. You have a PM - I'll take them and need them shipped Thanks, Chris
