The gulfstream is about 60-70 miles off of Jacksonville most of the time. And, the seas even on a good day are normally never less than 3 feet. My son and I were pretty avid offshore fisherman and we had a fast fishing boat . . . cruised at 45-50 and would top out near 70. My son, who BTW is no kid as he's now 37 always had us racing to the stream beating the heck out me and I am sure that's where I lost the inch! I measured myself about a week ago, called him up, and gave him hell. Everytime we made the trip out to the gulfstream I would grumble that he's making me shorter . . . and I was right.
