Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

The plans seem to rarely pan out, so we quit making specefic plans and just say we have this many days and this much money. When we've used up half of the money or the time it's time to turn around !
Trying to time coastal hops to a schedule in the past has resulted in some unpleasant and scary runs. Particularly along the jersey coast and the Delaware bay. Each of those have ,in the past, spanked me pretty good and showed me who's running things.
Not to mention the crew gets angry on rough hops, and you don't want to upset the cook and cohort.
As for key West, well, they don't call it Christmas (wisteria) island for nothin'
I've been fascinated with the fabled live-aboard community their since I heard about it about 8-10 years ago and have known a few sailors that have spent a year or two.
I've wanted to go and see for myself if the stories are true or just stories.
wife says I'll hate it and be bored in a week.
One way to find out.
Today, after breakfast, maybe a little skip down the jersey coast.
