Any word on beach re-engineering following the big blow out at sea? A number of reports of erosion in the Truro / Race Pt area.

Wondering if things have changed in the Monomoy area?

I've been down there post-blow but inside it looks about the same from the first bowl north. Haven't gone down to the actual inlet because there was an incredible number of recreational boats in boaters' bay (the last bowl before the inlet).

Huge (HUGE) tides as well so it was hard to tell what changes would be present in normal conditions.

According to Keith, about 20 feet of sand has been pushed south into the southway.

WOW

By south into the SW did he / you mean off the last bar into the inlet crosswise?

Juro, believe he meant an additional 20 feet of sand added to the spit jutting into the southway. I'll check it out this weekend. FWIW, lots of flow thru the southway on moon tides, but pretty lame the rest of the time.
