Boaters should have no problems the next few days while all of us can enjoy the transition from deep freeze to spring-like temperatures. Normally the shift from cold northwest winds to south with much higher temperatures would  involve windy conditions with rain — but that doesn’t appear to be the case this week. The current small craft warnings will come down by midnight, and the Sunday forecast is for west at 5-10 knots. The wind shifts south at 5-10 on Monday — and to west on Tuesday at the same speed.  We’re lucky to get a three-day stretch of calm like that in mid-summer — and it’s practically unheard of in mid-winter.

The Ocean Explorer was scheduled to sail from Belmar for blackfish today, but there was no report. The Big Mohawk will sail for tog at 7 a.m.
