You should be able to hear Herb from Jax, altho'' you may not have the time correct. Here''s the blurb off Herb''s website
"South Bound II, Herb, provides a daily ship-routing/weather forecasting service, as a hobby, on marine HF/SSB frequency 12359.0, starting at 2000 UTC until 2200 UTC or until completion of traffic. 8294.0 and 16531.0 are used as alternate frequencies as announced from time to time, subject to propagation."
That''s pretty early on 12 Megs and you may need to wait a while to pick him up (2100Z or so) altho'' I am surprised that is the case. Herb transmits from a suburb of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Were he in the Bahamas, you would probably not hear him at all.
As a suggestion, you might try to listen to him on another boat''s rig at the same time as yours, to compare signal strengths.
