I'll resuscitate this thread rather than start a new one. I'm revising plans for a crossing to the Bahamas
and then some time in the Exumas
and on down the Thorny Path. I have some flexibility in time. Right now I'm thinking of crossing from somewhere near Miami
and spending a week or so in the Berries before Nassau
to drop passengers off and reprovision. Any suggestions on:
1. The crossing and checking in. What about Miami
to Cat Cay and checking in there? Or is Bimini
2. Crossing the Banks to the Berries. It sounds like North Rock is the best entrance to the banks. We draw almost 5 and a half feet.
3. Any special suggestions for anchorages, things to see, snorkeling, etc in the Berries.
I realize that I need Pavlidis' book and I'll get it this week. But there are usually folks on here with pretty useful information.
