Wow, looked up the C&C
44 and the average mast height is about 62.5 ft to 63 ft. With 66 ft that pretty definitely negates using the Intracoastal Waterway anywhere there are fixed bridges - which is pretty much the whole thing. Don't forget you have to add in any fixed antennas and lights, etc. sticking up above the top of the mast.
- - So you would be able to do the Delaware River and C&D canal to the Chesapeake Bay
down to Norfolk, but thereafter you would be "outside" in the Atlantic Ocean
. And there is plenty of nasty water
out there that time of year, not to mention having to round some nasty capes.
- - You might be better heading out to sea to Bermuda
then the Bahamas/Caribbean before turning west to Panama
