We get some duldrums, but also get our fair share of wind too. I could not give you a percentage as our numbers may be different from yours. But I suspect you will get along fine sailing most of the way (not in teh ICW). In the ICW, you really should run your engine. But if it is a 16 footer... certainly you will not be burning much fuel?

Anyways, have fun with it.
