Six months after last posting
on this particular topic (River trip). We are two weeks away from taking our Gulfstar
Hirsh 45 from Sarasota
to Chicago. We will sail to Mobile, take down the mast
, and begin the river trip. I have all the electronic charts
, and paper charts
for the Gulf, but none yet for the rivers. Does anyone know of a resource for used charts?
We will be leaving Sarasota
about June 13. The hurricane
season will have officially begun. If anyone has any suggestions for good protected anchorages
or places we can head
for while we make our way to Mobile, if storms are predicted, we would love the advice. We have spent time in the panhandle and can think of a few places there but are not famililiar with much too far west of Penscaola. We will probably not stay in the intercoastal, but sail in Gulf and scoot in places to anchor
at night. We are thinking we may do one overnight to cut off part of the corner.
