Dave, one add''l thought...

If mast height clearance is a concern to you, consider picking up one of the guides that covers your route. I doubt you''ll have an issue with that small a boat, but you''ll need a guide or two, anyway.

One recommendation is Skipper Bob''s guide for this route (and back up along the East Coast). While he offers some overall guidance on the trip, his guide includes recs for every low-priced marina & fuel stop. Folks complain about his guides being out of date (good grief, how *could* each fuel price & slip charge be constantly maintained in a guide that''s only occasionally published...) but some info of this kind is far better than none. He especially favors anchorages, which might be especially helpful along your route.

The Skipper Bob guides can be purchased from Blue Water Books, West Marine, etc.

Jack
