Re: Best place to stop between Miami and New York

Philippe,

How long are you planning to stay?

My first thought is Brunswick Landing Marina, in Brunswick, GA. It's a good marina with decent rates and facilities. It's also pretty well protected. Many cruisers sit out hurricane season there.

Everywhere is quite a diversion from the rhumb line.
Except for Beaufort, North Carolina.
Thats the place you would stop in at if the weather round Cape Hatteras is too difficult to double. So you may have to stop there anyway.
It also gives you the chance to go inside Cape Hatteras in case of a hurricane.

Re: Best place to stop between Miami and New York

Your talking about well over a thousand miles and just about as many places to stop. Get a good set of charts and maybe a cruising guide and decide where you plan to be at the end of the day and where you can get in and anchor or stop at a marina. It would be impossible for anyone here to do more than make a couple of suggestions. Chuck

X100. Yeap, get a couple good cruising guidebooks, pick your cities and go from there.

I prefer stopping less places and spending more time on each one. Have fun and be safe.

Re: Best place to stop between Miami and New York

Plan your route with an eye always to the class A inlets to which you may be forced to bail. Getting into the ICW is usually a good plan to wait out bad weather and still make some daily progress. You need good charts, updated shallow water reports, and a selection of cruising guides like Skipper Bob or Dozier's. They all have something different to offer and are VERY helpful if not essential. Planning-planning-planning: currents, when and when NOT to try to enter inlets, shallow water, obstructions, bridge schedules, anchorages... it's a lot of work, daily work that can't be ignored. The East Coast of N. America with the Gulf Stream to deal with offers plenty of opportunity to get in trouble.

Re: Best place to stop between Miami and New York

it does.. and some areas are better than othes. The ICW in NJ is junk and best avoided.. but Cape May (cold spring inlet) and Atlantic City (absecon inlet) make good places to make a port of call. Both have excellent docking facilities just inside the inlet.

Just a suggestion though. Avoid AC on July 4th. The State Marina there will charge you $100 a night with a 3 day minimum stay

Re: Best place to stop between Miami and New York

It would be helpful to know what you mean by stop. Each night, every few days, once going north.

Also, why you're stopping. Sightseeing, fueling, groceries, laundry.

For instance, you can travel north from Miami up to the Beaufort Inlet in a series of overnight hops. Go offshore, catch the Gulf Stream up to Beaufort Inlet or beyond. Or travel up the ICW, stopping every night.

Re: Best place to stop between Miami and New York

What kind of boat? Are you talking about offshore or ICW? Easy to just get in Gulf Stream near Miami and stay in it until it swings East, then head for your landfall. Keep an eye on water temperature to verify you're still in the stream.
