question. Thanks Glenn for the diversion..now smacking my lips thinking of visiting Deals in Perry.
Castoff if you would like beach camping with your wife and minimize the open water exposure, leave EC and to to Picnic or Tiger Key.. Both voyages are relatively sheltered.
Another peek into the Gulf is possible with going down the Chatham River to Mormon Key. Watson Place is actually a fairly roomy camp if you do not mind company..(because it is big, it is often used by outfitters)
I too am adding to my Central FL repertoire.. I have paddled about 3/4 of your list but the guidebooks I have tell me I ave just started.
Don't know how long your trip will be but another consideration is how far sunk your hull will be loaded with the fresh water you need. I have had more fun with a more whitewater oriented boat when the water load is 100+ lbs. At least I can turn the darn thing. Less fun is a no rockered boat. But the Morningstar is not totally unrockered.
I guess I would go with the better deal :)
