Unhappy Another Needless Death

The reports in the Providence Journal and the local TV reports about a CT 14 foot boat turning over in the rip on Sugar Reef with the loss of one life. How many times have I stated that Sugar Reef has some of the best fishing in the area, but it is a very dangerous place for small boats? The waves break over the reef, and are no match for small boats very easy to take a wave over the stern , or take one broadside in a turn. My heart goes out to the family of the man that lost his life needlessly. When fishing the reefs between Watch Hill and Fishers Island be extremely careful it is no place to get lax. A day's outing can spoil ones life easily.
