Crossing South of Andros towards Cuba?

I hear a lot about crossing the 'Great Bahama Bank' from Bimini to Nassau, but never about the larger Bahama bank to the south.

I'm trying to plan a realistic route to cross south of Andros and into the Old Bahama Channel towards Cuba. There are some very old charts that show a couple crossings, but I assume that these were pre-Revolution days when Cuba wasn't the cruisers' void that is now. One went straight south from Great Exuma and one was a route closer to Andros headed southwest.

Anyone have any first-hand or reliable information? When I leave the Exumas, I'd like to head into the Old Bahama Channel and head west to cross Cay Sal Bank back to the Florida Keys.
