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.
