Thanks for the info. Was originally going to Nassau first, then the Exumas. Have decided instead to go to the Abacos as this is our first cruise with our daughter. My wife and daughter are flying into Freeport so I'm meeting them at Old Bahama Bay. I may take you up on entering the bank at Memory Rock, though, if it's much easier and deeper than Indian Cay channel (my draft is about 5'8").
Speaking of which if anyone is crossing the Gulf Stream to Grand Bahama next week and wants a buddy boat let me know.
