I am pleased to see that most people agree that questions can be answered without sarcasm and an attitude. Nobody knows everything and usually those with the most experience realize just how little they actually do know.
With that said I have a question. I will be leaving Charleston in the next few days. Being singlehanded I am conservative about jumping out of the ICW. If I remain 3-4 miles offshore, respecting the shoals that exist further out in places, will I be far enough from the Gulfstream to ignore it? Having read about this and studied the data from NOAA I would assume so. BUT, I would like to hear from folks with experience in this area.
