I finally made it to the Bimini Bahamas and then to Abacos for the season. Thanks for all the help.

Thanks for the update. How about some details of the voyage?

Nice pic....don't cheat yourself by missing the Exumas. It is far prettier than Abaco...IMHO

Thanks, I have at least 1 1/2 years to cruise. Exumas is next year.

The preps for cruising took about 4 years. Reading this forum was a big help.

The crossing started by running aground in AngleFish Creek, North Key Largo Fl (charts are wrong) and we had a bad forcast. It was rough the first 50 miles but in the last 15 the winds came on the nose and really picked up speed. rough and wet. I had an auto pilot and a big motor to punch through the waves. I had been waiting for over 1 week to get a weather window and we took the best that we had and are glad we did.

Heading to the Berries and then to Sandy Point, Abacos. It should be a nice ride.

One week is not bad. I have seen many wait much longer to leave South Beach, and head east. Have fun, and please do write about the voyage when you have a chance.

I made a thread on another forum where you I posted mostly pics. Writing just takes me to long.

Yep, Sure was a nice trip with an autopilot. Gas is $ 5 per gal. Lots of good food here. I should be relaxed by Dec 14th.

If you see a power catamaran named Horizons anchored in Hope Town, stop by and say hello to our good friends Ann and Paul. They may be on a power boat, but they are avid sailors involved with the local sailing club.

Fuel is $5.00 per gallon, you say? When we were in the Baltic last summer, we paid up to $12.00 per gallon for diesel. For an economical power boat! Economical or not, it was quite the sticker shock!

Enjoy yourselves and keep us informed.

The pic of facing west from the Narrows on the North part of Man of War Cay. The sand may shift with every passing storm so the beach may not be as you remember.
