...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR HAZARDOUS SEAS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM
EDT MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a Small Craft
Advisory for hazardous seas, which is in effect until 6 PM EDT
Monday.

* SEAS...7 to 11 feet.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that seas of 5 ft
or higher are expected or occurring, and are hazardous to small
craft. Mariners should avoid shoaling areas. Long period swells
can sharpen into large breaking waves in shoaling areas. It is
not unusual for waves to break much farther from shoaling areas
than is normally experienced. Remember that breaking waves can
easily capsize even larger vessels.
