Re: Preparations for a Manhattan to Nantucket straight through passage on the south s

The most difficult task will be steering. Keeping watch and maintaining a compass course for hours on end is not something I look forward to, especially at night. Think seriously about getting the tiller pilot and beefing up the battery bank for that, it will make a huge difference, trust me.

Nevertheless, best of luck and enjoy - it will be memorable.
