I've never sailed these waters, but years ago, on a cross-country motorcycle trip, I took a ferry from Cape May across the mouth of Delaware Bay in October. The seas were at least 8' and the wind was 30-40 knots. Cars were actually sliding and bumping into each and the ferry crew had to lash our bikes to the boat to keep them from toppling over.

I'm sure a 30' boat could handle these waters, but I'd certainly check the weather before venturing too far into the Atlantic.
