Thanks for your thoughtful answer. I did have a better understanding from your last post to Gary.
I have no experience traveling in the ICW. When the Admiral retires that should change. We will enjoy a slow trip down and up the coast, spending time in many of the places we have been visiting over the years. We don't make it west of Boston in our own boat now.
This is another example of the valuable resource fellow Sailnet members are. I would have made the decision based on the muffins alone!
