Those of you who go up and down the east coast: ICW or offshore? Why?

I hope we get some interesting opinions here.

My preference is offshore for a number of reasons – a big one being that we have a 7’ draft. In ’06 we traveled the ICW from Norfolk to Lake Worth. It was interesting and I’m glad we did it but I don’t ever want to do it again. These days we use the ditch only between Norfolk and Morehead City because we want to avoid Cape Hatteras. But I think that with a good weather window I’d rather be outside for that area too.

I don’t like the bridges; I don’t like the few jerks who love to wake sailboats; I don’t like the short travel days in the fall; and I don’t like hitting bottom.

I like being able to go from Morehead City to Charleston in one overnight passage. I like being on the ocean.

So what’s your preference????

With a trimaran drawing just over a foot (with the board up), you must have been able to go pretty much anywhere you wanted to, huh? I mean, providing there was horizontal clearance. Sounds cool.

Anybody have advice concerning a 5.5' draft in the ICW?
will be interest3ed in responses to this since we draft 5'8" and will be headed up this spring. would alos like to link up with others headed north around 4/1. Also, any observations about going north in April? should only start on April first since it is a fools errand?
Reggie, see Mary's reply to my post one page back. I think that pretty much would apply to your draft as well.
