We are taking our O'Day 35 south from Annapolis,MD on October 2nd. We plan to do the ICW to Beaufort, NC and then go outside to Charleston. We will continue on to Datona going outside when possible, if not, down the ICW. We plan to stay in Daytona until mid January, then move south to West Palm Beach to jump over to the Bahamas from March 1st to mid April. We plan on staying in the Abacos until heading north back to Maryland. Since this is our first long trip I would appreciate any suggestions from thost that have done the trip.
