I could use some help planning a trip from Annapolis
south on the ICW
I will be bringing my Prout 37 cat dwon to Florida
this spring. The end of May I will arrive by car at Annapolis
and have the boat put in the water
. We plan to leave within a day or so of this and have about seven or eight days to get as far south as we can. From where ever we end up I will have to leave the boat for a couple of weeks, then return with a couple of friends and make an offshore
trip, along the coast, straight to the Saint Marys inlet and my homeport near Fernandina Beach, Florida
. I have the charts
and guides I need, but am looking for some pointers from those who have made the trip before.
It looks like a two day run down to Norfolk. What is a good overnight stopping point halfway down the Chesapeake? We will consider anchoring
, or a marina.
How far can I expect to get in 5-7 days travel from Norfolk? What is a good marina choice to leave the boat a couple of weeks that will be safe and not break the bank? It needs to be near a good inlet for the remaining trip south.
