  sometimes its hard to find the right

paddling partners for a given stretch of water. I don't know you, your friends, or much about ocean like conditions, but we should all listen to that little voice inside us. If you're having reservations then consider your options. You could find a stretch of water that is more compatible for the group or get a new group to complete what you want to do. You owe it to your paddling buddies to be honest. Tell them your concerns. You could purpose a compromise by: limiting open water time/crossings, renting better suited craft,or trying a shakedown trip. Its bad karma to go against your little voice.Only do what you're comfortable with when it comes to others safety. It is okay to lie about the takeout. Its always "just around the bend" or "a little further." Everybody expects that.
