Gulf Stream crossing weather gurus tomorrow am

Hey all looking for some outside opinions on crossing tomorrow.

NOAA says Winds forecast for n 5-10 seas moderating to 2-4 feet. Passage weather looks similar. Opinions are varied on the docks in West End after everyone here had an extreme drubbing two days ago in an unexpected storm. Everyones walking around looking a little shell shocked.

Just wondering what others have heard in the big wide world of weather media.

Did you cross? Looked doable to me, just not ideal. It doesn't look promising for the next week. Best wishes, and stay safe you guys.

We crossed. Man it was awesome. The winds piped up north 10-15-20.(thanks NOAA) and we got a really nice big ocean swell, stimulating not frightening . Glistening waves, excellent sailing. Nice crossing once our nerves died down.
