We sailed through Woods Hole on our way to Edgartown last summer without an engine. Several of the nuns and cans we passed were almost dragged under by the current. The eddies around the daymarks, lights and rock outcroppings were impressive. We were closely followed by a tug and barge, and so were glad to have enough wind to be going faster than them: eight knots under main and jib. I believe there is a period of slack water for about twenty minutes between tides. Coming out of Woods Hole harbor with no engine, that would give you just about enough time to get into position to provide spectacular footage for the tourists on the ferry. If you can't mount a motor, perhaps there are moorings in Falmouth or Hyannis that would be accessible without one.
