eryka is on a distinguished road
If you're route planning, I'd strongly consider checking it at Morgan's Bluff on Andros. We did this in early Dec; 26 hours from Key Biscayne. The anchorage at Morgan's is great in all but a north wind, and you wouldn't cross in a N wind anyway. The immigration folks were wonderful - they are normally stationed at the airport but they came to us, and we filled out paperwork sitting at a picnic table at Willies Wet Bar right there at the waterfront. They gave us 6 month cruising permits, no trouble. We'd heard stories from other people who were only given 2 or 3 months.
