As most of know Old Inlet was breached during the storm and remains open with water flowing through both high and low tide cycles,someone told me that you can actually get through it on high tide with a boat,can any one else confirm this,has anyone been there with a boat or inside it with a boat?

My brother was over there in a 17ft Parker and as the approached the breach the hull was hitting bottom so they stopped. I don't know what tide it was but they stopped. It's all the washed out sand from the dunes settled int the bay and its shallow. He also took this pic

I am very interested to see how this breach is handled. They couldn't WAIT to fill in Pikes when it broke through years back. If this cut actually does become an inlet I think it would do wonders for the Great South Bay. I guess we will see what Mother Nature, (or Park Service) brings

There was an story in newsday the other day saying all the breaches will be filled eventually,I would love to see stay open and maintained if possible.

Old Inlet

The water was flowing freely when I was there, but a ton of sand has been deposited where the docks were. NO Chance of getting boat through there. You can try going around the back side of the duck house and come in from West. It will probably change again after this next storm. I took the first video Wed after storm, the one from the plane must be super low tide but the amount of sand is unreal.

Those new breaches are very controversial.
One side says that they are exactly what the GSB needs to recover.
The other side's issue is flood/storm protection on the mainland side (and FI homeowners).

I wish there was a way to accomodate both sides but I don't see it happening.

I took a ride over a few days ago. The approach is shallow but there wasa guy on another site that took a few pix as he went through the cut in a Carolina Skiff. There was no way we would attemt it in our deep vee hull.
I think that they will repair the Smith's point breach and Cupsogue quickly however the Pattersquash cut is part of Fire Island National Seashore and we all know how screwed up they are.

There area couple studies done on the effects of breaches/new inlets for the GSB. I found one about Old Inlet and another about the posssibility of a "new" Fire Island Inlet- (threee spots, Lighthouse 1800's), Jetty (1840's) and current location. They all seem to say that the bay wound change but couldn't say if the sealife would be better or worse off.

Be careful out there on the water.
Lots of debris, lumber etc.

I remember when there was the breach east of Moriches Inlet and homes were lost, I almost hit a semi-submerged washing machine (or dryer?) in the east/west channel just east of Forge River.
