Here is the plan, anyone done this. thoughts?
Ok my boat, 1989 21 foot Sunbird cuddy cabin. Power plant 1989 Johnson 110hp converted from V.R.O.
Fuel capacity 48 gallons.
The plan trailer my boat to Fort Walton this afternoon with a friend. Launch and anchor up on the inside. Hopefully with a bit of protection from the wind.
Grill a steak, catch some bait. Try not to freeze.
At first light. Out Destin Fl pass, troll west to Pensacola Pass. End of trip Navy Point ramp.
About 65 miles + or -
Following seas the whole way.
Staying with in 3 miles of land the whole way.
The not so good.
Cold as hell
High wind till about noon.
Having to go to a party with the better half Saturday night.
Trying to decide.
2 weeks ago went from navy point ramp to 3 barges then to Pensacola bridge rubble. Back to ramp fuel consumption 30 gallons. No trolling.
I am sure fuel will not be a issue. But will carry 2 five gallon cans of fuel for a reserve.

sounds like a winner - just stay warm (with layering) and alert.
sounds like you already have a float plan w/ your wife, and hopefully VHS and EPIRB.
