Re: Gulf stream predictions on PassageWeather.com
The gulf stream info you have is accurate the vast majority of the time in that area, although I don't know what you mean by veering east or south. The stream in that area is about 30 miles wide and consistently runs south to north, with occasionally some southward flowing countercurrents, which are usually found close in to the Florida coast. With the trip you have planned Westend is the last you'll see of the stream.
There are various other sites out there, such as NOAA's Ocean Prediction Center - Product Loops and others. Beyond that you could always hire a pro like Jenifer Clark's gulfstream.
Have a good trip.
