When people post about a weather window, ostensibly looking for validation, or a buddy boat, it is easy to assume lack of experience, or that input on weather forecasting/passagemaking is welcome. That's how it reads (skims) but sounds like you have it all figured out and you're just wondering if anyone else is doing the same thing you are? Subject lines are easy to overlook, especially long ones where words like "...on Thursday" are cut off.
If your rhumb line is for Jax, you will be 25-30 miles out, and Waterway's point may be that the 20 nm delineation is not to be taken literally, nor the forecast itself. IF I understand it correctly, 4-5 people recently fired up their epirbs in 8' seas off the atlantic seaboard. You should have a sweet ride if the forecast holds for late week int othe weekend
