Planning to sail from Miami to Bimini

I'm planning to leave this coming Saturday night from Miami to Bimini and being back Monday night on a 37'. It's my first time from Miami to Bimini.
Condition look good for Saturday night, more challenging for Monday.
Should be concern for Monday night?
I appreciate any suggestion

Mauro

Re: Planning to sail from Miami to Bimini

Not a very long weather window tomorrow evening...how stout a 37' boat do you have and how is your engine...maybe better to just motor or motorsail the while way there. Do you have a good working inboard engine? Also, remember Bahamas is now $300 over 30 foot boat...ugh

I just checked the weather. If this is your first time, you would not want to cross. Wait for another week.

Good luck.
