Florida to Abaco

Leopard 46, currently in New Smyrna beach, will move south then cross to Bahamas with Abaco as destination. You could stay on in Abaco for several days to a week depending upon when we arrive. Would like crew to join me in NSB. Prefer someone located in Florida, I'll pay to fly you back to Florida, I'll pay boat expenses and food during crossing, you share food/beverage expenses only while we cruise in Abaco.
Would like to depart New Smyrna beach in about a week, weather dependent. Let's get down to West Palm beach then cross over.

I'm male 63, easy going, looking for NON SMOKER. Boat is in good shape with lots of recent upgrades. You don't need to have massive experience, but knowledge of the Bahamas would be helpful. Will entertain anyone who can stand night watches and doesn't easily get seasick.
Let's talk.pm me.

Re: Florida to Abaco

Thanks to all who responded to my call for crew. I apologize that I was not able to contact every one of you personally before now.
The boat, crew and I are now in West Palm Beach waiting for a weather window to cross over to the Bahamas.
I'll need crew again in late March to get the boat up to the Chesapeake Bay. It will be about a 5 day ride up the gulf stream, winds permitting.
I'll start a new thread for that trip.
Again, thank you for all the interest in this trip.

About 5 days, assuming we don't have weather delays.

Re: Florida to Abaco

Mayagirl, thanks for your interest in that trip. I don't know a departure date yet, but when it gets closer I'll update. I'm on the Bahamas now and will be mostly offline for quite a while.
