Downloading Gulfstream coordinates

Is anyone here aware of a place/way to download the current coordinates for the Gulfstream? We were coming South from New York earlier this week and I realized how much I needed the precise coordinates, especially of the western edge. It could the Western edge be in a simple .gps file or a spreadsheet.

I was relying on a map, and now realize that a small distance is quite a few miles, and the precision would come in handy. I am using Coastal Explorer software and would like to know import the date to use when planning my routing.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

PamlicoTraveler,

The Navy used to publish a table of coordinates defining the north wall of the Gulf Stream off the East Coast. I used it in 2005 to plot points in my laptop navigation software for route planning from the Abacos to the Chesapeake, around Cape Hatteras. I think it used to be on this page, but for the life of me, I can't find it there now. They do have some nice graphical formats, but the coordinates were very handy.
