With a new(to you) boat, it might be a good idea to start out with a few short hops to ensure everything works the way it''s supposed to and will hold up properly. It would be less than fun to find out in a dead calm that the engine overheats after an hour or two, or that the batteries don''t hold their charge to keep the nav instruments on all night. A surprise like one of those could make taking the ICW attractive in comparison.
