Interesting question with a few considerations. I’ll start with the weather
. Early season storms come from the Atlantic/Africa, but late season storms (your proposed window) are typically borne in the Gulf. If one sprouts up, you’ll have a lot less warning, so just be aware of that. It’s not a deal killer- it’s just a thing.
This coming from a gun owner- you can safely wash that concern out of your thinking. This is essentially a delivery
. Many happen... often, and guns
don’t really play a role in them. Puerto Rico
is not the same as coastal cruising in Honduras
. You’re better off putting your attention in more realistic aspects of this-pretty simple- trip.
Hotels will introduce a limiting factor. It can be done, but will be (I think) needlessly challenging. Motor
until dark and anchor
, or press on through the night until a convenient stopping point comes up, then stop. It’s not realistic to expect hotel
accommodations on that particular trip....
Run from Miami
to Boston, and that’s a different story- you’ll be in the ICW
and I could guarantee you sun downers from a waterfront resort every single
This particular trip will require motoring more than the sunny 12 hours and would require some nights not spent in a hotel
Still worth doing in my book.
