Re: Rhumb line between Key West and Galveston, TX

Considering the time you have to "know" the boat, and what the weather can be like in the Gulf, I'd suggest a sort of mixed route.

Key West to the east end of the canal below Lake Pontchartrain.

Canal through New Orleans and cross the Mississippi to the ICW going west. With crew, you can follow a barge through the night. (It's wide and deep)

Take the Calciseiu River south to the Gulf, then to Galveston.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
