I plot, plan, think, and worry - but eventually cross pretty much every time I've wanted to. Some of the trips were nasty, a couple scary, and one dangerous due to sudden unexpected fog in the central convergence zone near Smith Island with several big fast ships on radar.

But, they are just a part of the Pacific NW cruising and boating experience.

Make the trip with a sharp weather eye and a plan to bail out and wait in Makey Harbor or Alek Bay. I've waited for a weather window in each place many times and have enjoyed each time.
Good answer! Wish I'd said that.
