Spanish Cay, Bahamas

I just checked in to the Bahamas at Spanish Cay Marina and it was great. New managers, former cruisers. They couldn't of been more helpful and by the end of the day we had 8 sailboats here and no one else. The Clearing in was a snap and we got 180 days. I told the lady that I wanted to stay for a year and she laughed and then told me she could give me 180 days. Just a great stay.

If you don't mind, what were your charged for checking in? Last year Spanish Cay Marina was supposedly charging $50 to check in and one cruiser on another forum reported that the marina '...didn't want to bother with sail boats.' It sounds like your experience was somewhat different.
