I have been caught in a couple of storms..but one stands out in my mind. I think it may have been the same one that High Tide was talking about. We were on my father's 28ft pacemaker..somewhere between the outer wall and the cape may rips. We were fishing and I mentioned to my father that there was some nasty clouds out towards brown shoal way. We waved it off as a passing storm. It eventually got close and the wind started to pick up. It was blowing a good 15-20 with 3-4 footers..this wouldnt be for long. The wind picked up fast to well over 30..waves I guesstimate to be 6-8. We then procedded to haul a$$ back to Lewes. We got in safely..but drenched. Once we got the boat tied up..the rain got horizontal and the wind was over 50 mph! When we got home we watched on the local philly station that 3 people were lost and something like 20 boats were capsized. I'm just glad my mother was with us to help 'coax' my dad to get in!
