Am turning 50 and need to prove to the world Im not an old fart ...yet

So the plan is to take my new-to-me Catalina 30 from New Bern NC to the FL Keys. I want to actually sail some, so I will be attempting to go on the outside as much as possible, yet stopping in at wifi enabled marina's to continue doing my work so I dont need to use all my vacation. Departure is October/November this year. Am going mostly solo, but with a few (nonsailing) friends & families joining me along the way.

Having just sat down and started planning, Im realizing the immensity of doing this.

2 questions I have at this stage of planning:
1) Cruising guides - anybody have a favorite for the US east coast? I'll need to know which marina's are wifi enabled, something that is relatively new, and have not seen in most

2) Weather - havnt looked into this, so Im clueless.. is one of those custom weather services warranted? Cruisernets?

Thanks in advance
Dave in NC
