You might try on this FaceBook site (if you're into FB) ...
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2221...?ref=bookmarks

It's the ICW Cruising Guide by Bob423. Bob has done the AICW tons of time, he posts his track and there are now 1,800+ folks who are members of the site. Lots of folks posting routes, tracks, marina recommendations and asking questions about the same.

I envy you! I wish I could be doing the same this year. There's a long, dark, cold winter staring me down.

Did you leave earlier this year? How far south will you come past Ft Pierce?

Safe trip.

Not sure I will make it.

Please don’t tell me you go as slow as Ted, I have to take one engine out of gear and turn the other off and occasionally bump the one engine to stay behind Ted. I was thinking I could leave a few hours after you guys and get ahead to get the party ready when you arrived, Watfa could have the meal prepared.

I think Irv was offering to put your boat on his upper deck, piggyback so to speak.

If I get underway at 2am, I should be inside Norfolk by early Friday afternoon and heading into the protection of the Dismal Swamp Saturday morning.
