Sailing Beach Boys' "Kokomo"

Has anyone ever sailed the locations (in order) mentioned in the song "Kokomo" by The Beach Boys?

Re: Sailing Beach Boys' "Kokomo"

Okay, let's set aside that the "Kokomo" in the song doesn't actually exist, doing the other places "in order" would make absolutely NO SENSE.

Why would you go from Aruba to Jamaica, then to Bermuda, and then all the way BACK to the Bahamas? You're right there. Stop in the Bahamas on the way to Bermuda! And of course you end up back in Jamaica (unless the "Montego" in the song is just another imaginary place, and does not refer to Montego Bay).

No, no sense at all. They're all nice places, worth visiting. But definitely NOT in that order!

The song says "in the FL keys" .... I haven't found that but there is a Kokomo beech in Hawaii. That would add a few miles to the Quest...

There's a lake east of Kokomo, Don't see any sail boats on Google, but there are some pontoon boats, there's no beaches that I can see.

The ramp is on the wrong side of the highway bridge at the south east end
