I took a trip with ECY from Pensacola Fl to Key West Florida. The trip took about 5 days (we left Monday morning, and arrived Friday morning). It was a good trip to get some offshore experience. The first 2 days were beating into 10 to 15 knot winds, the third day was spent mostly motoring, and the last 2 days were in gale force winds from the north with 12ft waves. It wasn't a smooth ride, but I was happy to see a few different conditions.
