Wow, We too are in our late 60's, and live on the Gulf Coast in Louisiana. What a great idea and very doable for many of us. Great thread, thank you!! We are thinking of heading to the Keys in Oct./Nov. this year but are not sure about adding to that plan yet.

Years ago we had a friend who did something similar. He had some difficulties as he chose to cross from Mississippi to Veracruz and then head east, along the Mexican Coast to the tip of Yucatan and across to the Keys and back to N.O., La. along the coast. From Veracruz to the Yucatan it was all hard to weather in a 35' ketch. His wife left him after that leg and hasn't been seen since.
