Hello everyone, this is my first post, and I am not sure if I have it posted in right area. Forgive me If I don't.
I am looking at buying
a 1989 Morgan
41 Classic from Northern Florida
, and was wondering what the best way to get it back home would be. I have alot of coastal experience, and I have a friend with a fair amount of offshore
experience on the trip. I think I have 3 options for this cruise
, a) ICW
(Scenic but Slow), b) Following the coastline, up to 30 miles off coast to be able to get in if hurricane
is forcast. c) Offshore Head
out to Bermuda
then on to Newfoundland
. Oh BTW, I have 3 weeks to do this trip in. However, If I discovered I would run over, will be able to make alternative arrangements, IE put up boat for season and fly home, to return in spring to continue.
I am interested in any opinion, comments or tips to help with this trip plan.
PS. I am planning on getting Full suite of survey's (Hull,Mechanical,Electrical, Rigging) done before departing appropriate provisioning
, including cruising guides
, echarts etc, and will sail her for several days before heading offshore if that is our decision.
Hope you have lots of tips and opinions to help with this decision. Thanks, Jerry Belbin flopster
