From Deer Isle Option

If you are going to be in Stonington, you might want to explore going to Vinalhaven from there. Could be a loop by using MITA islands north of Northhaven. The crossing is shorter, but it is still something to think about.
I have not done it, but I know several who have gone to Vinalhaven from Rockland. Based on their experiences I concluded it is not inherently a huge deal, but having a right skill set, being prepared, and picking the right day weather/tide wise are all important to avoid having an "eventful" day on the water.
