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..
My thoughts exactly. You can still try the round-the-clock passage, but you have a harbor nearby if things go bad or the weather turns. Can't imagine day after day banging into heavy weather in a boat that small with only two to share watches.
