Don you have truly been invaluable with the info you provided me and I really appreciate it. I will plan to model my route with that in mind. With my 5 foot draft are there any sections in this route I should be especially concerned about - what was your boats draft and height?

Re: First time cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Long Island NY via ICW

We are currently at anchor in Atlantic City on our way to Bahamas. Over the winter I will update that article.

That hysterical laughter you hear as you sail a way in your "new" boat ..... is the seller.
