Re: Advice For Trip from Jax to the Keys
Welcome to SailNet.
Some of the questions that you have are basic skills that you have if you take a basic boating safety course. Before you leave you should know how to determine time/speed/distance, the required safety equipment that you need for your boat, etc. I highly suggest that you invest (<$100) in a U.S. Power and Sail Squadron or USCGAux boating course.
Given the age and condition of your outboard, I wouldn't suggest attempting any travel off the coast unless you are absolutely comfortable with your sailing abilities when you can't rely on the motor.
I moved your thread into the Destinations folder. There are a lot of responses there to others who asked the same questions about sailing the coast of Florida. You might want to spend some time looking there.
Best of luck.
