Re: Titusville to Jax

That is a long way to motor up the ICW. Are you sure you don't want to go outside at
de Leon and up to Mayport? At least you would be sailing the entire time and not motoring and you can do overnights on the outside. Looks like over 130Miles on the ditch.
Wouldn't you have to drop the hook at sunset? I would think it would be three days motoring the ICW and than another good day to Doctor's Lake.
BTW, what is the bridge clearance on the highway 17 bridge?
I can look it up, I don't remember. I thought all the sail boats stayed on the river side of that bridge.
Is the boat sound? Have you spent anytime with her? You said you recently purchased the boat, I highly recommend some "Shake Out" time on board before taking off from Titusville. Even if you just plan on motoring, get familiar with her before you depart.
I actually would be interested in this trip, but I can't meet your time frame.
