A friend asked me to help him on a delivery
from Ft Lauderdale to Nevis
. The boat's a Viking 48' with twin 670 hp diesels. He wanted to spend the nights in marinas
, so that was a consideration in selecting the route
I've attached the preliminary plan I came up with (Excel spreadsheet). It might give you somewhere to start your planning. My friend's since been looking into shipping
the boat on a freighter, so we may or may not end up actually doing the trip.
The trip from Nevis
to Trinidad would be easy daylight hopping from island to island. You can find diesel
on most of them. The cruising guides
by Pavlidis and Doyle are a big help on this route.
