Transit Time? NY-FL

We plan to go into the ocean, not down the ditch. how many hours of travel time should we budget for?
the end port will be tampa. beginning, albany.
i have heard there is some place in the Carolinas that you should take the ICW because the ocean in that area is crazy, where is that?

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

I'm sure currents and winds will be different but our boat left Fort Lauderdale and next touched a dock in Huntington, NY 7 days later. They stayed offshore, did hit a storm of the Carolinas and lost the steering at some point in there. Fortunately, the autopilot still worked so they video-gamed it home. LOL

Yep! And that was with a stop by the Coast Guard when they came into NY Harbor at 11 pm at night in April of 2002. They were not letting them out of there easily!

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

well we have a racing boat, so during my watch (16 hours) we will be in top form, but before the wifes watch i will switch to the 64% genoa and throw in a reef. then if she gets into trouble, it takes a while.

Going around to Tampa will definitely make a longer trip.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

You'll be against the current the most of the way.

What is your passage planning speed?

as a rough guess I'd budget 3 weeks for this adventure.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

Perhpas you can add a few extra days to that as you are going against the current the whole way, and wind on the nose often after cape Hatteras. But if its a direct passage, no stops, you should do it in 12-13 days or put it a better way, thats how long it would take me

I've always thought if you reef for someone elses watch thats like telling them you dont trust them. They will sit there... bored... resentful... and go to sleep. For that length trip anyone will be quite proficient half way through.

I was in St Augustine, Florida in november last year and it was cold as hell.

A good watch system for two people is
0000 - 0400
0400 - 0800
0800- 1300
1300-1700
1700-2400

person on-watch cooks.
