Bahamas cruising in a small boat
Thanks for the replies. My intention is to sail from Ft.Lauderdale to West End, then around the Abacos,and then start heading Westward via Nassau,Chubb,and Gun Cay.I''ve got a great boss that apparently has pity on sailors,or he just wants to get rid of me ;^)He has agreed to let me take up to four weeks vacation to do the trip. I''ve looked at the charts and envisioned numerous sailing scenarios, but to see the Abacos without backtracking, the West End route looked pretty favorable. You mentioned several items I''ve also thought of. All of which are very sound.I have a new Raytheon Autohelm 4000,and Raytheon GPS chartplotter installed on "Favorite Sport." Many other upgrades in progress. Thanks once again for the positive feedback. When I posted the note I thought " Ahh, man...I''m probably going to get the " you''re crazy! You can''t do it in a 26 ft.boat!" I''m the first to admit the crazy part could be right, but not about the 26 footer! Cheers!!
