28 DAYS from MD to GA?Good morning All,
I am looking around and wanted to try to start planning for a future delivery. I would lke to have a captain transport a 28' Bristol sailboat from MD to GA. I am still planning the trip but so far I am seeing a 28 day to 8 week trip down the ICW. Is this an accurate estimate on how long it would take. Would going down the outside of the coast be any better wind wise or travel time. I have a large keel of 5'3" and about 2,800 LBS. Is there any suggestions on what I need or should have onboard for the trip. I am still a beginner so if more information is needed please let me know.
Thank you for your time and assistance.

The distance is roughly 600 miles. Assuming a conservative 40nm/day it should take no more than 15 days. This should be an easy trip. Even with your 5.3' draft, the ICW would be a logical choice for a delivery with a new to you boat.
