You just have to pick your day very carefully, and be sure to watch for a wind that comes up late morning, and wind against tide going in and out of inlets. I'd suggest Belmar inlet which is much, much less scary than Barnegat.
An alternative would be to launch and hunt Great Bay on a quiet day as well, which has lots of buffs, OS, and later in the season more bluebills than you can ever decoy, as well as brant....
Either one could be done if you're willing to quit quickly the moment you get uncomfortable with the situation, if your motor is very reliable, and if you're ready to stop even if you're not even out of the inlet yet. Always a pain to cancel, but safer.... Water depths can be 30 to 70 feet so you need lots of anchor line and lots of decoy line to get them to hold as well as small Danforths or, my choice, heavy sash weights for the decoys.
A couple of good radios, a couple of good GPS's are advised. The CG can pick up transmissions from handhelds without a problem but they should be waterproof for rain and spray.
We find 3 guys in the boat is easiest: one for the motor, two for the decoy setting and retrieval. Possible with 2 but definitely makes one guy work hard.
