Eel Bight

3 05 2010

The bight is a large bay, some 20-30 miles across. It is fairly well-protect from storms, but its rocky shores make it a less desirable harbor than Cobble Bay to the west. There are several rogue currents within the bight that can push an unwary boatmen onto the rocks. There is also strong southwesterly current in the open waters south of the bight. Small boats that venture too far out can be swept off towards Cobble Bay.

In the fall and early spring, the weather is damp, foggy, and chill. Daytime temperatures average only 45-55º F, with nights dropping down near freezing. Rain is frequent, as is sleet, and the wind can gust at times. More often the air is still, allowing fog to linger and thicken.
