Since a month has passed I'll follow the thread drift. We've cruised the East Coast US for many years, including the coastal hops and ICW route from the Carolinas to the Keys. Is this your route,- you mentioned a gulf? Plans to find an island to stop and camp at each noon are not realistic. There are some good places for this, but they won't be presenting themselves frequently or by your schedule. What is the route that you are considering? Take care and joy, Aythya crew
