Sailingdog, thanks for the input in response to my post concerning the Gulf crossing, Tx.-Fla. I did this trip 3 yrs ago, December, direct, via a short jog south before setting course Easterly for K.W., anticipating the g.s. loop, winds, and platforms and encountered prevailings, mostly, for that time of year according to relative pilot charts. I've over 70k sea miles, mostly under sail, lots of experience fitting out boats for extended cruising, crossings and with crew and owners with little or know experience. Good to see experienced sailors offering input and cautions, much appreciated and again Thank you. Todd I
