Re: Routing Ft Lauderdale to Charleston, SC Offshore

You can easily tell where the stream is at night--its where the T-storms are. If there are T-storms forecasted, I go 20 miles west of the stream at night and watch the show, rather than participating in it.

Donít count on cell phone service anywhere on the trip after leaving Florida. Remember that the coast curves inward and when are out in the stream you may be 20 miles or more from land.
I have done Port Canaveral to Charleston several times and it is an easy trip in good weather if you head the advice and watch the weather.

Good to know. I was wondering how close we need to be to shore.
