Craft Advisory, which is in effect from 10 AM to 4 PM EST

in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.

* WINDS...25 to 30 knots with gusts to 40 knots

* WAVES/SEAS...7 to 10 feet with occasional seas up to 13 feet

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Small Craft Advisory means that wind speeds of 20 to 33 knots
