Re: U.S.-Bahamas, Crossing the Stream
The OP is a novice. Encouraging him to do things that are better suited for experienced sailors is irresponsible and reckless.
Some people seem to be full of bad advice.
Please note that I earlier suggested anyone with concerns about the offshore hop to the Bahamas take along a delivery skipper or other experienced sailor. The costs can be balanced against the fuel, food, and marina expenses you DON'T incur motoring down the ICW.
I do owner-aboard deliveries regularly. I have colleagues who do the same that I would be happy to refer anyone to if I'm booked or if anyone feels my counsel is self-serving.
Granted I have a warped sense of humor but I enjoy meeting up with people in the Bahamas who I saw in Norfolk or Hampton and have just arrived a month after I did. *grin*
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
