Wave height is one measure, frequency should be added to the measure. 8 feet is nothing. Try going through the cape cod canal with a 30 knot breeze blowing against the current. You will learn that wave height is only a small piece of coping.
Then 8 feet becomes something as yo fall off the swell and drop.

I'd love to see the link to the boat that hit 35' breaking seas without damage.

That particular canal can be a dangerous place in the best of weather. It's made worse when you have a boat the size of the Eagle screaming up your backside, looking for channel room.

At least, that's my recollection from 20 years ago. I don't get up that way much anymore.

You better leave today and get as far south as you can. A low pressure is supposed to develop and come up the coast. Right now it is predicted for Wednesday / Thursday and somewhat off shore.

Do you need to be...that depends on your schedule.
Should you be...that depends on your location, crew & equipment.

We leave today, we are planning 35 miles a day until we meet up with our Canadian friends. should be a nice little ride. The forecast is a bit.... mild.
when we hit the ocean we may have less the 5 knot winds.... at least it will be smooth.
