Crossing bars with breaking waves?

I donít think my boat has the HP to overcome the drag of a drogue. Plus, I have a pretty square transom, a transom door that would probably buckle if a big wave hit, and my scuppers are too small to drain the cockpit quickly enough if it was swamped.

My plan, if I see the inlet that I wanted to come in is gnarly looking, is to just hang out outside until the tide changes or the wind/waves die down.
