    The Gulf Stream begins when the Loop Current, Florida Current, Caribbean Current and Antilles Current have all merged into one, the Gulf Stream.

    This doesn't happen until the last two, the Florida Current and Antilles Current, merge somewhere around Georgia/South Carolina.

    Hopefully this works.

    Yep, there are places just off the northern coast of Cuba where in just a couple miles it drops off to almost 1000 fathoms deep.

    The Florida Current is a thermal ocean current that flows from the Straits of Florida around the Florida Peninsula and along the southeastern coast of the United States before joining the Gulf Stream Current near Cape Hatteras. Its contributing currents are the Loop Current and the Antilles Current. The current was discovered by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León in 1513.

    The Florida Current results from the movement of water pushed from the Atlantic into the Caribbean Sea by the rotation of the Earth (which exerts a greater force at the equator). The water piles up along Central America and flows northward through the Yucatán Channel into the Gulf of Mexico. The water is heated in the Gulf and forced out through the Florida Straits, between the Florida Keys and Cuba and flows northward along the east coast of the United States. The Florida Current is often referred to imprecisely as the Gulf Stream.
