Curious what seas Jefferson owners are comfortable with. Just moved ports from Gulf to Atlantic side and much different conditions.

What matters is what YOU are comfortable with. Get out there and see. Plus a Jefferson 57, for instance is going to be a different story that a 42. Not to mention they had a variety of designs and hull forms.

Mr. R. Waves are waves are waves EXCEPT in the Gulf Stream when the wind has any north vector in it. So from WNW to ENE, beware.

In my experience with numerous boats. The boat will handle way more than you are comfortable with.

I think a 42 foot Jefferson should handle between 6 and 7 footers. Better have everything ship shape though.
