My husband and I are planning a trip to the Gulf in the spring of 2021. We have a Sea Ray
440 Express Bridge and currently stay on it 4-5 days a week. Our plan is to upgrade to a bigger boat
full-time. Our trip in 2021 will be a trial run so that we can make the trip in our familiar boat
and see how we like being full-time, as well as see what we need in our next boat. We plan to leave in February and take approximately 2 weeks to get to Mobile Bay. We will be leaving from the Knoxville TN area and taking the Tombigbee down to Mobile. We plan to take another 2 weeks to get to the Sarasota/Siesta Key area, stopping in Destin for a few days. We will probably head
back up to Tennessee in April or May. We have so many questions about the trip down, cruising the ICW
, best places to anchor
, best places to visit, etc. I have tried searching for information in this forum, but there are so many threads and I see a lot for sailboats rather than cruisers. Which forum should I ask my questions in? And please feel free to add any advice or info to this post as well!
