No, I think if you have adults on the boat a 32 would be fine. The only part that seems to be regularly rough is the 50 miles on the outside from Sunshine to Key West. It is also possible to go on the gulf side from there but it takes more navigating and doesn't give everybody a chance to run them like they do on the outside. But I have also been on the outside when it was like glass too.

Outside was actually boring last year both ways. Smooth smooth smooth.
But I've seen just the opposite.
Last year on Monday from the middle of Biscayne up to Lauderdale was nice with a little throttling and after dropping Clark for airport I ran offshore at night to Pompano and that had to be one of the best runs I've ever made. 2 AT's against the lighted South Florida skyline and shoreline..what a sight!!

Agreed. We were down there in '06 in a straight Tiger with big power and 6's and got caught in a storm. wasn't safe to get the boat out of the harbor. We had flights to catch so rented a car and had Murray tow the boat back It was an eye opener to see the water kick up like that and start raining huge drops. Taking water over the bow of a Tiger isn't fun! And I sh!t you not, it went from calm and sunny to straight sh!tty in the matter of 30 minutes to an hour.

Let's get a group to go back too. That's always the problem, big groups going down, solo going back. We're rolling back to Miami on Sunday mid morning.
Hey Tank, see you there. We're in for the Thursday run, Boca on Saturday and back to Miami on Sunday.

This is Gary with Asset Trader running the last 50 miles on the outside in 2004: http://www.flpowerboat.com/new/photo...D04-16-090.cfm

It is one of the best shots Stu from FPC has ever shot.
