Since nobody else has answered yet, I'll offer what I can which unfortunately isn't a whole lot. First, I assume you are familiar with Van Sant's "The Gentleman's Guide to Passages South" - He hits on major stops along your route
all allowing for deep draft.
I can personally only speak of points from Georgetown
north. The bank side might be doable, but many of the typical anchorages
would be problematic. I soloed back to Florida
on the ocean side which is of course deep the whole way. I believe everyplace I ducked in for the night would accommodate you, but verify with your charts
Glass Cay cut just north of Georgetown
offered a nice secluded anchorage without the rat race
. From there north stops were: Lee Stocking, Bell, Allans (Allans might be pushing your draft - though I anchored east of it instead of inside.), I anchored off Rose Islands instead of dealing with Nasasau. Of course Nassau
has plenty of draft. I've heard from several people dinghy
theft can be a problem there. In the southern Berry's I've anchored at Chub Cay, (I can't remember the draft, but think it was reasonably deep), Berry Island Club (which I'm fairly certain is deep enough) The owner of the Berry Island club offered rides to town in his truck for a reasonble fee. In the north Berry's, I anchored in Great Harbour which I think would accomodate you with no problem. I've never stopped at Cat or Bimini
, hitting the stream right away instead both times.
The Abacos are are out of your way but worth a small detour if you have time. I have much better knowledge of that area, so send me a message if you'd like ideas.
While I've never done it, I know some typical stops coming north are:
, Coneption, Long and on to the Exumas
In addition to the Ocean side, you might be able to sail the banks entering at Cave Cay Cut with a stop at Staniel and then somewhere north like Allans - Long days, but doable with a good SE wind
. I'd probably stay on the ocean side, with that draft, but I think people have done this.
Hopefully someone who has more experience than I will shed some more light on these stops for you.
