Hey everyone! I'm looking for a few tips or advice, feedback etc.. Planning to solo sail from Florida to Bimini mid to late jan 2014. The boat is a Watkins 27. For those not familiar she's a slow overrigged boat 26.3 loa 10 beam 23 lwl 7800 displacement(wayyy empty) 15hp yanmar diesel. I don't like entering new water after dark so I'm looking at leaving quite early maybe 4 am on an ebbing high tide from Angelfish cr just N of Key Largo. The intention being this should make the first 5-10 miles not such a fight and starting off that far S may allow me to use the gulfstream and the typical S-SE wind to arrive in Bimini before sunset, which should be around 6pm. I would prefer to start even further S but I don't and never will like the idea of sleeping with no one on watch in a potential shipping channel! Any tips from those who have done this sail? departure choice, time of day etc will be appreciated! thanks!
