Re: U.S.-Bahamas, Crossing the Stream
We did 75 miles doing roughly 6 knots @2500rpm. When I say in a day, days were typically 7a-5p. I think we could run offshore, but inside of the Gulf Stream from SC to Jacksonville, FL. After Jacksonville, the Stream starts pressing very close to shore, so I envision fighting the current too much if trying an offshore leg from say Jacksonville to Ft. Lauderdale, although I have not tried so I speak from research and hypothesis, not experience.
