Texas to Key West
I''m getting ready for a Texas to Key West trip to be made in the next few weeks with return one month later. I''m planning an offshore route and a near coastal return since H. season is getting close. My question is regarding the offshore passage in terms of route. I''m using the usual resources--pilots, Gulf stream data, Cornell, Calder, Van Sant, etc. I can''t find Calder''s Western Caribbean guide which I suspect is what I would really like to have. It kind of boils down to going south first then east or east first then south. I would really like to get to deep water early rather than stay on the choppy shallow shelf for half the trip.
If you''ve made such a trip in early summer, let me know your route. And Jack (Whoosh), please let me know your thoughts as well.
