You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Coondogger, at the very least use a weather router service like Herb (Southbound II), and be prepared to dart into the closest shelter, Charleston SC or Beaufort NC south of Cape Lookout, and wait for a weather break. You will have about a 12 hour window before is gets really crappy. Keep in mind that northerly winds against the Gulf Stream build immense seas, steep and close-together, breaking indiscriminately. You will have winds on the nose, so this is going to be a beat in every sense of the word.

Sail2001-

You are aware that Coondogger hasn't been back on the board since sometime in late 2004, and that his most recent post is over two years old... as Cam has kindly tried to point out, right??

Hmmm.....he wanted to make the passage in Feb O4 and he hasn't posted since then! Maybe his trip didn't go as planned. I have kitesurfed down there and it can be a very scary place. One time i was surfing and my leash broke. The rip current sucked me away from my board...maybe 2-300 feet in a very short time. By the time i got to shore it was almost out of sight!

I think so, but could you do it in a 47 foot sailboat? My guess is the masts would be too tall for some of the fixed bridges.

HS...Mods can't do that but maybe Admins can! I like the locking idea when a thread is over a year or so old.

Midlife...I have done it on my boat quite a few time at 52'...as long as yer mast is 64' and your draft is 6' or less you can still do the whole thing as long as you are willing to wait for tidal help in a couple of places in SC and GA.

Actually... I think it should rather be when a thread is inactive (no new posts) for six months. A thread might be over a year old, but if it is still active, there is no point in locking it.
