Everybody goes outside at the Whale passage except for the very shallow draft,- 3' or so. Manjack and Nunjack are commonly said for the same place. My only suggestion would be, if you are waiting for weather at Lake Worth inlet, take the poor weather day to motor down the ICW to anchor in Lake Sylvia in Ft. Lauderdale. Though your distance to Memory Rock or Indian Cay will be a little further, you will more than make up for it with your ride on the Gulfstram current. We usually leave Port Everglades at 6am and cross onto the Bank at Indian Cay by 3pm. Our trip from West Palm usually takes about 1+1/2 hrs. longer. Take care and joy,Aythya crew
