If the object is to go from Key West to Cancun quickly, they have this new fangled thing called a Lear jett airplane. How out of touch would you have to be to travel at 64 mph when you could travel at over 400 mph.

Yeah and depending on which size It's starts at 15k each way. Jet ownership is not worth it. Chartering is where it's at.

The LOOP has been run by 18ft outboards in the 60s and by jet skis.

The question is how much comfort is required , to enjoy the adventure.

Not many places on the loop where fuel is not available , so a boat need not carry fuel for the entire trip from the start.

I had the pleasure of touring Pooh when it was at one of the Solomon Trawlerfests in the late 90's or early naughts. It was everything Mark says about it. It looked to be a very professional conversion and it has one of the best engine rooms around.
