Thanks, sounds like a good plan. When I was there before, 3 days, I didn't even go into town (although crew did). I was more focused on boat stuff, and it gave me some breathing space without having to entertain anyone.

As we get closer to this year's departure date, I'll know more to ask.

And maybe we'll cross paths one direction or other en route, too, like last time.

Echo'ing from above. AICW Waterway guide. AquaMaps w/ACoE surveys & Navionic Sonar charts. If you're a FaceBook'r, this is a very helpful group https://www.facebook.com/groups/ICWCruisingGuide/ . Bob423 has tracks (.gpx) you can download/use for planning for your entire trip. Fairly up to date information on a lot of the ditch from folks cruising it on a routine basis.

Checking WWG and AC for reviews of Isle of Hope/Thunderbolt/Westin... surprised Thunderbolt still does the Krispy Kreme thing. First time I ever had those was at Thunderbolt, 2001... like mainlining pure sugar!

Doesn't seem like the Westin hotel staff people have much of a clue about boat things...

I second the AquaMap/USACE recommendation. Maybe even more confidently once I get the app to work two days in a row... and with all the USACE survey data. That disappeared this morning, GEC support is looking at it...)

I agree on the ICW. However, it gets cold in northern Florida in the winter. The cyclic northern fronts come through with cold winds.

My wife and I live in Cape Coral, Florida on the Gulf Coast. Last summer we took a three month trip through the keys and up the east coast via ICW to the outer banks. I made a blog so my kids and friends knew where we were. I can share it with you and you can look at it from both directions.
