If you are headed down to the Islands from Florida
(BVI etc, not Bahama's) I have read about the Thorny Path and I-65.. but not much is said about going West around Cuba
, looks like you could stop by Cayman Isls, Jamaica
etc even if you are not permited to stop at Cuba
like most Americans... looks like this route
might save you from some of the problems of the Thorney Path and is not as far from land as I-65... I know there must be a reason... I am just too new to know... help ?
