Also, why do you say it's not as bad as it used to be? Very interested in the electric propulsion
, by the way.
I would say about three hours give or take depending how fast you motor. I think it's about a 17 nm passage
. There use to be quite a few reefs
and rocks in the Hell Gate area they were taken out back in the 1800's. Now it's just a little patch of turbulent water
but, nothing too scary just keep a good hand on the helm
. I've sometimes gone through when it was like glass too. Last time I had 20 knot
winds on the nose and and wind
against current and it was a little rougher but, nothing extreme.
