The only possible significance for boaters if it grows to be like the two breaks to the north (big IF) is that they will save a run around the tip (something like a mile linearly). That ain't much. Google Powder Hole if you're not familiar with it's locale.

About the only thing we can say for sure is that things will become unstable... oh wait they always were

That part of South Monomoy has been thinning the last several years, not building like to the north around the southway. I'll place my bet on that breach persisting, if not immediately, in the near future.

The photo is a breach on a saltwater pond, according to a response I received from the refuge.

I googled Powder Hole but;my parental block wouldn't allow it to load.

Anyone visiting the Powder Hole area needs to be mindful of closed area signs of course. Tight lines

Thanks Jim.

So rather than the north facing inlet, the outlet on the Natucket Sound side now cuts anywhere from northwest to west (i.e. more directly) and thus there is no impact to navigation nor increased exchange of sound waters with the Atlantic side (e.g. the "guzzle").

The impact on fishing would be that it may promote a rich tidally available food source for spring and fall stripers to pillage, if not a full invasion than a likely feedbag on the ebb and more interestingly it would likely be revitalized habitat for other estuarine species of the very delicious variety that don't run very fast

I can also presume that the photo is looking south southwest to the gap between Nantucket and the Vineyard and that the breach is of significant size thus the Powder Hole will be excellent habitat perhaps all through the year due to it's proximity to the atlantic (about a mile).

Spoke with Kate yesterday (photo taker / Monomoy official).

The breach is as suspected, a more direct second break in a westerly direction (vs northward inlet). I'll row down there and take a look once it warms up a bit. Should be a good workout and an interesting exploration.
