Hi, i have been a member for a while, but recently acquired a Duffy 46 on the East Coast. I have been talking about doing the ICW for years, so i am about to start moving the boat South from Long Island Sound.

How long have you had the Duffy and where have you boated so far? Is the ICW just for a trip or a permanent move?

Welcome aboard.
It is always nice to do the ICW with a buddy boat who has made the trip before.
You can follow along and take notes for the future.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of good cruising on the ICW. I have done Norfolk to Stuart, FL numerous times and still enjoy finding new places to stop along the way.

Duffy 46

Only pictures i have are from the listing/survey. If i can figure out how to post those or a couple I take myself, i will. I bought the boat near Syracuse, brought her through the Erie Canal and down the Hudson and into Long Island Sound. She was in beautiful condition, although noisier than the sailboats i am used to. I hope I can keep her in the style to which she has become accustomed So far so good.

Lobster or SF version, meaning flybridge or not? Wilbur Yachts or Atlantic Boat from Duffy yard? Both Wilbur and Atlantic, although Atlantic now officially the Duffy builders and still at it and the Duffy and Duffy yard apparently still active and building commercial and recreational.

Where on the Sound are you? I'm in the Housatonic river with frequent trips to Port Jefferson, L.I. Probably be there later this week. Supposed to be close to 80, doesn't get any better in October around here.

You can post pictures by hitting the "advanced" button and then adding a picture or several as attachments.

The boat is an aft cabin flybridge (ala a Grand Banks 46 classic) built by Atlantic in 2007 on a stretched Duffy 42 hull
