Miami to Bimini
I get ONE week off every year (I own a business and my wife owns one, too).
I have two options 1)the week of Thanksgiving or 2)the week of Christmas/New Years.
I have a strange idea that I'd like to trailer my 24' Spindrift down to Miami and cross to Bimini.
I have made longer trips in her (Pascagoula to Pensacola). I have made trips in "open water" (in the reletive protection of the Gulf Of Mexico). I have been sailing for 30 years - the last 10 years along the Gulf Coast... It doesn't seem difficult, but that is precisely what bothers me..
Am I crazy? What am I missing? It's like I can't see the forrest for the trees..
It this common? It seems like it would be. Does that Gulf Stream really set the boat off bad and make a 50 mile trip more like a 100 mile trip?
what is it I am missing?
