man.... I have done this and it is NOT pretty if the interval is close...

We did 12' to 15' swells with almost NO interval all the way from Half Moon bay to the gate and I chummed the WHOLE way. And I don't *usually get seasick... honestly it was really really awful. and when we got to the new marina the insult to injury was that I had to clean the port side off...

If the swells will be that big and close you will prolly be under motor most of the way and hating life.

I hate to sound so negative, but honestly the only time I felt this bad was in 25' to 30' seas off the Atlantic coast of Panama... when I had the flu...

There is a reason the north route up the coast is called 'The Bash'...


ain't what ya do, it's the way that ya do it...
