looking to cruise with new boat from Miami to Cape cod

I am looking to possibly purchase a newer boat in Florida and cruise it to Cape cod. I have never done this type of extending cruising and was wondering what resources and recommendations you would suggest for planning this type of trip. all of my experience has been around cape cod and the islands day tripping, never extended trips, but I want to learn. Looking to purchase a 37' downeast moving up from 25' lobster design center console. thanks for the help

Look for info on cruising the ICW to start. If you want to take the open ocean route, search for blogs on the internet that have done the trip and search here. Cruising guides are a big help for specifics on entrances, anchorages, and marinas but don't offer much weather or trip planning info.

Re: looking to cruise with new boat from Miami to Cape cod

Piece of cake. We did it up and back to learn how to manage our 63' steel shrimp boat with no previous experience. Easy anchorages all the way and some beautiful stretches. The barrier islands of SC are fabulous. Stay at a mooring at 79th St in NYC for a while, best hotel in the city. Take a friend, the ICW can be boring.
