Intercoastal around Florida
We lived in Florida and caught a direct- and I do mean direct- hit from Charley and we caught some of Frances and Jeanne. We have moved and are presently in Georgia.
The reports that I seen advises care if you''re using the ICW from Venice south through Ft. Meyers. There my be debris and actually some sunken boats that may be a hazard. On the East coast, the problem is even more severe.
The advice doesn''t say not to use the ICW, just be careful if you do.
