Pavlidis' guides are very good. Wilson's is good for planning.
Explorer Charts.
Depends where you're going, if you're headed to the Bahamas bank and Tongue of the Ocean Miami would be better.

Explorer Charts ONLY
Dodge Guide to Abacos
Pavlidas Guide for rest
Key West is no place to jump off and Marathon CAN be done but why bother. Go to KeyBiscayne and anchor in no name harbor for the right weather...then leave through the Florida passage and be in Bimini in 6-8 hours.
