    Who are the Brown nosers? eom

    but tides are not all the same.

    If you go
    to the panhandle of Florida, the tides are only
    about a foot and in the Keys, it is about the same.
    Some parts of the world have higher tides than others
    and the greater the distance between high and low
    tide, the greater the currents and the more difficult
    it is to manage a boat.

    The tidal currents
    along the Georgia coast are tricky. Anyone doing
    coastal fishing is better off with a smaller boat. There
    are times I wish I had a bigger boat but in reality I
    would not use it as much. When I want to fish deep, it
    is cheaper to charter a boat a few times a year.
    Cost is the reason that I keep my boat at a marina. If
    I had my boat on a trailer, I would need a bigger
    car or truck and this would be added insurance.
    Hauling a boat over 300 miles one way is expensive. When
    the numbers are put on paper, using a marina is less
    expensive than keeping a boat at home. The downside is that
    I only use the boat along the Georgia coast.

    I provided the information so that Jeykll can do
    his "research". Only someone who knew the area could
    have provided some of what I wrote. I'm closer to him
    than he realizes.

    In fact, between Jeykll and
    Cumberland, there are some shallows that must be avoided when
    heading between the two islands. On the ocean side of
    Cumberland, at the northern end, there is a creek that often
    has good trout fishing. A big boat cannot get in that
    creek and a smaller boat can only get in there at high
    tide. If a boat stays in that creek too long, it will
    have to wait for the next high tide.

    There is
    an old saying, "Those who do not tell the truth, do
    not trust the words of others." I'm beginning to
    believe that this saying applies to you and your buddies.
