The practical answer...I have never been in a situation where it works out that neat.
So right. We had a pilot (2 guys on a jet ski with a handheld VHF) talk us in when we crossed a bar in El Salvador. You could only cross at high slack. The goal was to not get overtaken or overtake a breaker. We hit over 10 knots surfing down the face. Coming out was just as much of a challenge where timing and the throttle were critical.
