Re: Boat Delivery Boston to Florida

Boston to Lauderdale... 1300+ miles
Lauderdale to Panama... 1300+ miles

In a small boat you would be lucky to average 50 miles per day on the ICW and Fl to Panama is hard work in a big boat and not to be attempted in hurricane season.

That is a month for each leg and hurricane season is approaching.
Where will the boat be berthed in Lauderdale and Panama?

In Fl you would be better going to Miami...

We have done both trips, on the boat in our avatar, as a two person professional team and it is hard work on a big keel boat. The Panama leg would be dangerous in a Sharpie even if you knew what you were doing!

Truck it or sell it.
