Statute or Nauticle miles? I know it sounds like we're busting your chops but the saying goes, "if you've got to ask it's probably too far...."

I don't know why you want statute miles, but from Shinnecock you're looking at about 78sm to the tip, and about 90sm to the hundred square.

Your GPS and chartplotter and fishfinder and radar and whatever other marine electronics you're using will 99.9% of the time be using nautical miles/knots.

You will knock 5,556,000mm off your trip if you run out of Moriches.

The distance between one point and another on the ocean is not always "shortest" by steaming a "straight line". In this case we are talking about 100 miles or so, but when transiting greater distances say a few hundred or more miles, you do a great circle sailing. Which would appear as a arc on a plotting sheet. The same principle goes for airplanes, a flight from NYC to Tokyo , the flight path transits over northern Alaska. This all due to the curvature of the earth.

Eric, very true, but that's for trips of thousands of miles. For "short" trips like from Shinny to the Hudson the shortest route is still a straight line.
