the hudson canyon is a very significant deep water trench... but different to west coast canyons, because of our extended continental shelf.

I don't care if it's 8 feet or 10 feet, I am staying on the sand. My days for that are over. You guys can have fun, and deal with all of the kooks who go out and think that they are Laird on a freshly waxed gun. I'll keep my geriatric knee to thigh or waist high days where everyone complains it sucks, but at least less people are out.
