Re: Taking the boat north next spring
With climate change what it is today, and El Nino/El Nina going strong or not, I'm not sure that any references to habitual weather patterns are going to hold true.
Since you have the time to wait any bad stuff out and pick you weather windows and sail accordingly. You can move up the ICW in almost anything and pick your offshore passages with care. As the reliability of the weather forecasters is rather iffy, make sure you have an inlet you can use within range, should you see an approaching evil t-storm.
I absolutely loved XM-weather when it was available, but it may be a bit expensive for a one trip deal.
