If that's the case

The CG station is right there, not more than 10 minutes to the rock.
That rock has claimed quite a few lives, Small craft warnings are the norm in this area. The water temperature here is probably around 55 deg, cold enough to render you helpless fairly quickly. That's why a life jacket is so important. Most people won't survive more that an hour in the water up here.
