I picture me in a 38-42ft full keel boat someday with a NEW engine would be so cool.
The CCC Canal is like the C&D times ten with current. We have been in the CCC in a ripping current of 5+ knots.

The approach from the south up Buzzards Bay can be a bit rough also when wind is against current.

+1 for Sicciuate
