My wife and I are planning a trip from AB down to the Keys. I have looked at both options of ICW and out in the Gulf. Naturally, the ICW provides a ton of protection from the unpredictable GoM along with easier stops for food and fuel. My question is, how long should we plan for the trip down (by either route assuming fair seas) and where are the best fuel stops? We should be riding along at about 24 knots and I am planning on three full fuel loads at 250 gallons and will have Active Captain at our side, but would rather hear from those who have actually made the trip. Finally, any suggestions on where to anchor or moor while down there.
