Re: Gulf Crossings

A good cold front can spank you. Read my write up on BFS.

I've heard of die hards that wait for a cold front to blow down to get more speed going south. Having been out in a few fishing, I would rather wait.

How long did it take you?

What is the best source of the Gulf stream location?

Did you try to ride it to gain speed?

What were your starting and ending points? I am thinking of going up the coast to Venice, and cutting straight across to Cozumel.

What are good check in points for Mexico? Is it better to get a VISA in advance? I heard some people get hassled that only have fuel bills, there is an online site that you can order a Zarpe, have you done it that way?

I know this may vary by season, but what is the worst weather you encountered, and how long did it last? Thanks.
