I have never done a trip like this and am looking for advice, things to watch for and anything else you think is important to know.
I am looking to drive a 32 ft sport fishing
boat from Fl to Antigua
in Nov, she has twin 454 gas engines and holds 260 gal. There will be 4 persons on board(epirb and life raft) one of which has a captains license
but all experienced with boats. I think it will take about two weeks to do the trip(plus or minus), fishing/trolling most of the way. I have found out that not every marina has gas/petrol and it can be as much as $7 per gallon. Anyone do something like this and know about how much fuel
? I have calculated a few ways and get different numbers. I want to island hop the entire way and only do day light hours for the most part. Can you stop at all the islands and gas and ice without stepping off the boat as to avoid customs
and immigration? We will make a few over nights in hotels for a break and to get off the boat. I have heard not so good things about the DR(planning on two stops) and the Mona Passage
can be nasty. Any help or advice is greatly appriciated
