Default Buoy off Alabama/FL

44 miles offshore, rockin and rollin', 19' seas. The one to the south of this broke free and is adrift.

Wave height of 19 feet. How far offshore can I go in my 19 foot Key West CC under these conditions?

I've got a Minn Kota 24 pound thrust trolling motor that my grandfather gave me. That should work as a kicker.
