Have been in and out of Barnegat Inlet about 8 times, only once was it anywhere near as easy as Montauk Inlet. Big currents, ocean swells, sandbars on both sides, In Dutch "Barnegat" means breakers, and they're not kidding – a minute after this video was shot #MonTikiLargo was going over foam-topped rollers. Thrilling is an understatement! #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
Wade Devlin-SchererI regularly fish the North Jetty there. Have to wait 2-3 hours after stated low or high before current slows down. Appreciate the challenge of this inlet. Coast Guard comes out each morning and crashes into those inlet waves to keep ready to break out in any inlet conditions. Much success on the rest of your trip south.

Denise CooperMy husband has lived on LBI since he was born ... Even he is uneasy going out that inlet. He does not do it with me on board !! I'll take the zero.
Safe inside Barnegat inlet. Three knots of outgoing tide jacked up the southeast swell, making the trip through the jetty mouth a little more white-knuckled then I would have liked, and gave Capt. Gerry an appreciation of what a cakewalk Montauk Inlet is, even on the worst days! #MonTikiLargo #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
Lunch at 5kts on #MonTikiLargo. The staysail and foresail are set to induce a very slight weather helm, which is countered by a shock cord to the wheel. The main is run loose. When Largo rounds up, the main luffa slightly, and the boat falls off; but if the boat falls off too much, the main powers up, inducing more weather helm and bringing Largo back on course. We sailed this way for two hours, during which time Capt. Gerry made lunch and we caught a small bluefish that will garnish tonight's rice-based dinner. #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
#MonTikiLargo is in lower New York Harbor, making her way to Sandy Hook. The plan is to anchor overnight, then down the coast to visit family in Barnegat Light. #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
James Wharram Designs "Pahi" series as based on his flexi-space interior living concept. With "I'd rather go sailing than build cabinets…!" as his motto, interiors are spare, every bit of joinery is structural, and storage arrangements left to the user. This offers big rewards of space, grace, and comfort to those who can truly pare down their material existence and "live simply". With our Pahi63MkII (drawn especially for us by JWD) we've extended the flexi-space concept on deck, creating a vast and roomy day cruiser for up to 100 guests. But with a few minor additions - the patio set from #RanchoRyan, a four place setting of Correll from K-Mart, a stainless steel camp stove/oven, and yes, an espresso pot - our family's workboat is transformed to a family cruiser; easily managed by a crew of two, but with room aboard for eight or more family and friends to sleep, eat, rest, relax, enjoy the water, and enjoy each other's company! #MontaukCatamaranCompany #FamilyBusiness #whatdoyoudointhewinter ...

Wind's switched to light east-southeast. We glide along by moonlight. The only sound is the water over the hulls and the barest creak of the wood masts. #MonTikiLargo #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less

A bright, warm late September day is a good day to start refining the shape of #MonTikiLargo's seahorse figureheads. #Montauk #woodwork #woodcarving #Handmade #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
We're getting to the end of our season, and getting #MonTikiLargo ready for her journey south. When we're not using it as a dance floor the sprawling center deck makes a nice place to do outboard maintenance! #Montauk #MontaukCatamaranCompany #SailingSeason2017 ... See MoreSee Less
Yet another wedding rehearsal dinner outing on #MonTikiLargo! We really love these wonderful gatherings of friends and family, and Largo's huge US Coast Guard approved deck make it so easy for everyone to eat and socialize, even under sailpower alone. What a great way to bring two families together! #Montauk #Wedding #MontaukCatamaranCompany #SailingSeason2017 ... See MoreSee Less
