The crossing was rough. We had a bad weather forcast and it turned worse 15 miles from Bimini. 20+ winds on the nose. Hard on a 26 footer. I had enough power to push through it and an auto pilot. Nice. We had been waiting for over 1 week for good weather and we took the chance. I am glad that I am here and not waiting in Fl.

It is best not to have any winds from the north and less than 10 mph from the east. This makes into an easy day sail.

The crossing is often and certainly potentially the hardest part. Now that you're in paradise there's no reason to move if the conditions or the boat aren't quite right. Go slow and have a blast.

F you man, I just had my boat hauled (the town will not permit me to keep her in the water past November) and I'm freezing my ass off here in Long Island NY. Your story and picture does inspire me though. Congrats and happy Thanksgiving.

I left from Anglefish creek, N. Key Largo. Had a little help from the streem to Bimini.

Here is a Pic of Mermaid Reef Marsh Harbor Abacos Bahamas

Can I come??? ha ha ha

It's supposed to be 10F tonight with wind chills below zero. The picture you took warms me up just looking at it. Congrats on an achievement I know you have been looking forward to for a while. Glad to see it!
