After all that howling west wind, the ocean should be calm tomorrow when the Ocean Explorer sails at 7;30 a.m. from Belmar into a forecast of northeast 5-10-knot winds and a 1-foot sea. They’ll also sail Thursday to finish the blackfish season. The forecast Thursday is for 10 knots again, but with a 3-foot sea. The seasonal pool will be decided that day, and it’s up to $4100.
The Atlantic City Boat Show opens tomorrow at Convention Hall and runs through Sunday. The World Outdoor & Fishing Expo starts Thursday in Rockland Community College Field House at Suffern, N.Y. and also runs through Sunday.
