Slow Cruising South along the ICW

Evening folks.
My wife and I are about to cast off the dock lines and head off... we''ve got no place to go and a lot of time to get there!

Everything I''ve found so far on the ICW tends to be about getting down to FL relatively quickly in the fall.

Perhaps that is the only way to do it, but we would really like to spend some time along the way to enjoy the various areas.

Ideally, we would like to take from 6 months to a year to make the trip from Maine to the Keys... with about a month or so in a few key areas along the way. From there, we''ll be heading to the Caribbean for a year or so, etc., etc., etc.

The most likely start date would be early July... any thoughts on when to leave the NY/NJ area to best accomplish our goals? (actually, we would be starting out from East Dennis, MA)

Or do the weather patterns not allow for such a trip?

Any thoughts and or comments are greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,
