Re: Should I go?
I've made the trip from Boston to Provincetown once, in my 37' Gulfstar. The conditions were almost exactly what is forecast, except I think the wind was slightly more south. I can tell you NOAA underestimated the size of the waves by a good margin... I think they were 10-12' at the furthest point from land. The wind also ended up being slightly stronger. We made excellent time though! I would not have attempted it solo, and there were times on that trip I regretted attempting it at all. After reflecting for a while upon arriving in Provincetown, I decided I'm glad I did it, and it gave me the confidence to handle similar conditions in the future. But definitely not solo, not unless I had a ton more experience doing solo trips (I've never soloed my boat).
