Boat Delivery from Tampa to Port Arthur

Hi Yall,
A friend just purchased sailboat in Miami. He's asked me to help him sail it to Port Arthur,TX where he will put it on a truck and ship it to Long Beach. Has anyone out there sailed this route before? If so, could you share your experience and some tips with me? What are the prevailing winds in that area? How much sea traffic and avoidance of oil platforms? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The boat is an Irwin 38 cruiser, center cockpit, and shoal draft keel of only four feet. We plan to go just south of the rhumb line to Corpus Christi instead of Port Arthur. I think the mast is 56'.
