Hi all, I am one of the Husbands friends being referred to in these posts, so I thought I would chime in and shed some more light on the subject.
Sorry Shusher....You thought you could hide from me.....LOL
The Boat is in the BVI's, her husband and "Friends"
will get the boat up north to it's final resting place, no worries how, and when.
Her husband and crew will get the boat checked out in the BVi's, he is there now doing part of that.
The boat could sail through the Bahamas or skip the Bahamas and go right to the states.
OPTION A - BVI's
She could spend a week to 10 days in the BVI's and then the boat will make its way without her to the US.
OPTION B - BAHAMAS
She could let the boat makes way to the states via the Bahamas, (it will still get checked out in the BVI's), then landing in George Town Exumas
, where she could join her husband and friends, and spend a 7-10 days in the Exumas
, while making it's way to Nassau
, where she could get reasonable flights home with the kids
Then the "Friend" has graciously offered to deliver the boat to the states and cross the gulf stream
with her husband. Captain
could then deliver the boat from there to the North.
: I think the question is, if you could only spend 7-10 days, where would you rather spend it, BVI's in the two lagoons, or Anchoring
and sailing the Exumas? Don't worry about logistics, they will be taken care of either way.
By the way, her friend, one of which is me: Check my blog Blogging aboard Black Diamond!
. I have crossed the gulf stream
a few times, and have spend 3 months cruising the Bahamas with my sailboat which has a draft
of 6 1/2 feet, and have only touched a sandy bottom once. I have sailed most of the Bahamas, the Exumas being my favorite. I've completed the trip to Nassau
a few times. Sailing from the tip of the Exumas to Nassau can be done in a day cruise. We can easily get the boat from Georgetown
, to Nassau in 7-10 days, with beautiful day sails
on the inside of the cuts, and spend each evening at a different anchorage.
