want to know if you can trailer a boat to the Florida keys and make the crossing there ( 98 miles)
Yeah, that's a big difference then boating down the coast. But then you still have cost of fuel driving down with a tow, and all the expenses in
The way gas prices are now, I honestly can't see it being worth it. Flights pop up to Cuba for 5-600 dollars sometimes tax incld.
Depending on where in Canada you are, that's about 4-5 gas tanks for the car, but I assume truck for towing? My truck was about $80 to fill last time
So you are looking at around $400 roughly each way, plus cost of hotel stay unless you do shifts driving... throw in some food, etc. By the time you
do it all, I'm not sure if it's worth it.
And for $600 you can rent a vacation apartment
in Cuba for the month.
I can see where the boat might make up for some costs once you're there, but... personally I'd rather spend the time in a villa or apartment. To
each their own though.
