Re: Newport/Martha's Vineyard/Nantucket--your feedbacked needed!
Woods Hole is really not bad if you time it right. It's plenty deep and wide. Just stay in the channel. Quick's Hole is not dangerous as long as you watch where you're going. Make sure you don't wind up trying to negotiate Robinson's Hole without local knowledge. If not going over to Menemsha, going inside the Islands on the Buzzards side is quite a nice trip. You can wait out an adverse current in Hadley Harbor before going through Wood's Hole.
