Dave, are you sure you're not looking at last
year's Ports and Passes? Mine for this year shows slack in Deception on the 16th at 9:30 and 4:19. Noon will put you at max flood of 7.3 knots! Slow going. Or maybe I'm missing something (like my glasses, perhaps?).
Don, If I go the inside and miss the 6 foot seas in the Straight, what will the kids do for fun? Their highlight is bouncing on the v-berth like it's a Disney e-ticket ride while I hang on to the helm for all it's worth.
Someday they'll get it...maybe.
Here's hoping for calm seas in the Straight. Sure saves a lot
