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

Not sure why you would go outside on a boat of that size. Not to be a nervous Nellie, but I would go through the Long Island Sound, stay close to the RI coast and then go through Vineyard Sound. That way you are always close to some port, should something go wrong. If you get a perfect weather window, maybe, but that is not a very large boat and you will not exactly be averaging 6 knots..
