I've been to the Edge plenty of times in my 21 Contender with a single engine. As long as your boat is maintained and you have all safety gear and sea tow, your 236 should be fine. Maybe you can do the buddy system with someone else, if your not confident enough to try it yourself.

Buddy boating is always better.
Always safer with a another boat choose by just in case.

I have a seafox 237 I take to the edge and farther. Last trip in October, we went out to the yellow gravel and loaded the boat with scamp 40 miles out of orange beach. A 23 can go anywhere you want to go. You just have to be aware of Mother Nature and what she is capable of.

That boat will make the edge no problem. I go all over the Gulf in my 21' CC single engine.

you can make it out there on a good day in a small boat. i have a 20 and thats where i mostly fish. i will not go out there alone (without a buddy boat) when the water is this cold. hypothermia can kill you pretty quick in the winter months. been wanting a raft and a eprib.

I don't have a raft, but I do have an epirb. I tend to stay my butt closer to shore in the winter months. Just have to choose the day and always have a good float plan.

We used to take our 19ft aluminum hull, 90 hp FORCE out to the edge all the time. Just gotta pick your days and know whats going on around you. Some people are overly cautious and will tell you, you need 2 motors, epirbs, SPOT, food for 6 months water for a year and yadda yadda just to leave the pass, truth is trust your gut, if your not comfortable leaving the pass in anything less than a yacht then don't but there are thousands of us that don't mind. If I die tomorrow on my boat all of my family knows i will have died doing what i live and went out how i wanted to, so it don't bother me to push the limit a little.
