Bahamas Hurricane Holes

I had always planned to go to the Bahamas after hurricane season ended, and be South of "the box" prior to the start of the next years season. The plans have now changed, it appears that I will be headed to the Abacos in April ... and will still be "somewhere" in the Bahamas during hurricane season 2007.
I have heard that good hurricane holes there, are few and far between ... does anyone know of a list? Or have some recommendations?
Bob

Thanks Fishspearit for the excellent resource, I have printed out ... and have many new waypoints to add. I have to ask the forum ... what's going on? In the past, a new thread would stay on for a minimum of 24 hours ... I posted this one 9hours ago ... and it's already gone. Many forum members are night owls, by removing it so soon you also remove the chance that they will see it and respond ..... what's up wit dat?

Bob, what do you mean "gone?" I just saw this thread near the top of the heap. Please explain?

Sean,
That's really weird .... I could not see it on the computer where I work, or my laptop here on the boat .... yet you could? Beyond me!
