South Florida Cruising

Recommended Posts

Anyone have experience cruising to the Florida Keys from Naples? With only 147 gallon fuel capacity in my 310 Sig I am a little concerned at making the leg from Naples to Key West. I have twin 5.0 mercs with Bravo IIIs. Has anyone doe the leg?

I have never done that particular leg, but what I can tell you is that I know Marco island to key west is approx. 80 miles. I have the sig 290 with 115 gal capacity, and the 5 liter Volvo duo prop drives and can easily go more then 100 miles with 10% reserve. I hope this helps. I saw you're from St Pete. where do you keep your chap? I am in Tampa.

Thanks for the response. I have developed a fuel burn chart and I'm pretty confident that even if bad currents or weather are encountered I should have plenty. I did change my route and will be departing for Key West from Marco. I live in Tampa, but boat is in St Pete.
