Have spent my entire life on the gulf coast and having worked offshore on the oil rigs gives me a little insight. After the first real cold front comes through the Gulf can become a very nasty and scary place to be. I have on several occasions been on a 175 foot crew boat and been concerned for my safety. I would not go out on any extended voyage until spring time. In between cold fronts does make for some great day/overnight sailing chances.
