    Wide Bay Bar

    Iím thinking about heading out through the Bar this weekend as Willyís looks ok for DI point. I havenít done a lot of Bar crossings and heard some horror stories about this bar so unsure what to expect. Iím an experienced boater on the open water but donít know how the swell, wind and tide will affect this bar.hope to head out Saturday morning and back either in the afternoon of Sunday morning if weather permits in a 6m Aluminium boat. Any advice greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Tracker! Low tide is late afternoon. Is there any issues crossing at low tide ?

    Fifty bucks says it will be sloppy as. Almost 2m swell , windy on Friday, close swell. Best time to cross is an hour each side of the tide.

    Jag, I use the fishermans gutter, gutter style entrance that veers of to the south of the main bar. Much less water moving through it than the main bar and a heaps shorter run. Heaps of blokes on hear use it.
