One other question - can anyone recommend a site for up to date weather
in Cuba? Look forward to hearing from you.
As others have said, so long as your boat is not-USA documented, and everybody onboard is not a USA citizen or legal
resident alien, you should be able to sail directly with no problems.
- - Having a State registration
is simply a matter of having the boat in the particular State (say Florida or Texas) continuously for more than XX days (90 days in Florida). So that should not be a problem.
- - For weather see: Radiofax Charts - New Orleans
These are the daily weather fax charts
showing winds and waves forecasts for 24 hours to 72 hours.
- - You will most probably be within range to receive the NOAA weather on your VHF radio
Wx channels if you have a good VHF
