Re: Bad boat trip on Bethanny Ever After

A 75 ft boat could probably do it in that time frame but the story is total crap. The coast guard isn't going to come out a guide you to Nantucket. How did we ever make it to north america before gps. I've made that trip many times long before we even had a loran. Get out a paper chart, know your speed and currents and plot a course. There a lots of shoals in vinyard and nantucket sounds but they are well marked.
