Hi. Reading so often that Long Reef is the place to go, I am tempted, after 4 years of boating in the harbour, to get out there. I have a Quintrex Sport bowrider 470, and 60HP 4 stroke. Max Speed 50 kmh on flat water. I am thinking of getting a VHF radio and Epirb, which is around $500. To justify this expense to the finance minister I wanted to know how often is the weather allowing an easy ride out there, and how long is the ride? Since I fish mostly with my son, I am very much risk adverse, so any swell above 1m would be a no-go, as for the wind, it would have to be less then 10knots. And yes, I can go out only on the weekends. Or is there anything closer in? Thanks for the info
