Actually, I have talked to several people that do deliveries between the Virgin Islands
and the states, and also sail Lake Erie. They have said that the worst weather
they ever sailed in was Lake Erie, and if you can sail the Great Lakes
... you can sail anywhere.
I have been on Lake Erie in 14 foot waves as a ferry
boat passenger and sailed in 9-10 footers. The lake can be a kick some butt!
