I've made this trip, and my dad will be leaving from Beaufort Inlet tomorrow (11.15) on a Pacific Seacraft 34 to make the same trip.
In very general terms, you head ESE from Beaufort Inlet until you're across the Gulf Stream, then head more or less south. Four to five days offshore, maybe six, depending on wind and boat, and landfall at Marsh Harbour is what I've done. I think the owners of the 34 are planning to keep the boat at Guana Cay for starters.
You could also go offshore but hug the coast inside the Gulf Stream, and then cross the stream farther south, if you're worried about being so far offshore, but that would take longer.
Hope that helps.
