Crossing the Gulf in a slow 31 foot boat can prove a daunting task. I would not encourage anyone to do it in a 6 knot boat unless they are steeply aware of the mission at hand and have the requisite skills to read weather, have immersion suits, carry a life raft and have more than 1/3 fuel on board when arriving at the next stop. Add to this having a seaworthy vessel, crew skills and maintenance knowledge for the waters being considered.

I have no idea as to how the OP and his vessel fit the above criteria. He doesn't need to stray to far from Seattle to get a feel for these waters. Whether visiting Barclay Sound, going to Port McNeil or all the way to Elfin Cove - questions are easily answered. Those are sure low to the water and big straight up windows forward on the C31.
