I am a recently retired (merchant) marine engineer
and am new to the forum if not to cruising. My girlfriend, the lovely and talented Dianna, and I are readying my Edel 43 cruiser for a short (6-week) cruise
through the Bahamas
next week from here in Key Largo
. Itinerary is open but probably Exumas
, Long Island
and maybe Eleuthra. A patchwork crew made up mostly of my retired union brothers from the MEBA will assist and enjoy as well.
We are toying with returning via the Middle Bight of Andros as we received a good report from Skye, a Shuttleworth
32. We were on a Gemini
cat then and now draw more water
at 3' 09". If anyone with any direct experience with this trip would care to share their insights please don't hesitate.
