CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
I agree. If you're looking for frequent anchorages and sailing the ins and outs hugging the coast and taking some of the ICW, sailing will be limited by all the tides and currents. If your'e choosing a segment of time in the Lower Keys, I'd select spring or fall. You get a lot of tiresome northers in the winter and too many still days with the afternoon thunder squall in the summers. Maybe it's best to trim a little off the first of fall too, so you're past the higher hurricane risk, maybe mid-october, if the tropics have settled, until december or march through may. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
