SW Mexico to SW Florida
We want to get our 40' cutter (Caliber 40) from San Diego to SW Florida as quickly and easily as possible. We have done a lot of US West Coast cruising in the last 20-years and now want to move us and our boat to SW Florida to begin cruising the US East Coast, Bahamas, T&C, etc. This journey from San Diego to SW Florida will be more a delivery than a cruise but we do want to take as much time as possible getting there, BUT want to be in SW Florida by mid-June 2016.

Once established in SW Florida we will return to the east coast of Mexico and Central America as part time cruisers based in Charlotte Harbor, FL.

We've sailed from San Diego to SW Mexico several times and understand the schedule for that part of the trip.

If you've done the Zihuatenejo/Acapulco to SW Florida trip tell me about the timing. I think I understand the schedule for crossing the Tehuantepec but would appreciate any advice about your actual experience.

We've talked to several folks who've done Colon to Florida but never got the actual detail of timing the trip.

Share your experience - Please!

SW Mexico to Balboa
Colon to SW Florida

any other thoughts you can offer about our planned trip.

Re: SW Mexico to SW Florida
Curious no replies. But I suspect your enroute now.

I am headed for Charlotte Harbor myself.
