have to do with the day. Its about a ten mile crossing.
You have to get up early. Penobscot Bay kicks up about ten am.. How high it kicks up depends somewhat on wind direction. Opposing wind and tide just makes conditions worse.
You have to paddle fast too.. No ten miles in ten hours. Do it in two to three. I haven't dared paddle across it yet though thought about paddling up to Lincolnville and then across to Isleboro.. When I have been on island cleanups with the MITA power skiff its always been bouncy and a wet ride.
