I have a 57' Carver Voyager and plan to move the boat
south for the winter
. I'm currently in Cape May NJ destined for Myrtle Beach SC in the coming weeks. The marina I am heading to is Grande Dunes on the ICW
. This will be my first trip south of Cape May and am looking for advice
from anyone who has made this run on course options, best ports
to rest each night, contingencies for weather
at approximately 22 knots and am hoping with good weather
to run 10 hours each day. In talking with people, I understand that there are a few ways to go and want to consider all options for a safe and enjoyable trip.
Ideally I would like to run at cruising speeds as much of the time as possible and avoid too many slow areas, however also don't want to get beat up the entire trip by running outside.
Please let me know what your suggestions are in as much detail as possible! Thanks!
