Re: Daytona-Long Island?
24' boat and open Atlantic for any ten days, and I'd expect someone's going to think they got trapped on a roller coaster at some point. Even heading and and then ducking in...the ducking part won't be quick in a 24' boat, more time lost in and out.
With lots of patience and an eye on the wx, still might be a nice trip, but I'd make sure to file a float plan with someone and keep checking in. And don't be afraid to change your mind and go up the ditch if you get beat up outside.
