What is the name of your boat? We are sitting in Long Island aboard Loose Change. If you wander by, say HI!

Sounds like a late start, but we are right behind you. We are hoping for one last northern front to come through in about 10 days, so we can catch it leaving Jacksonville Fl. We haven't determined our route yet to get on the other side of Cuba. We'll see what the weather Gods give us. BEST WISHES on your trip.Maybe our paths will cross?.......i2f

Great!! Just wondering why Biscane and Bimini? Try FT. Pierce to Abaco via White Sand Bank and Great Sail or West Palm to West End. Don't miss Abaco!! Easy

Whoo Hoooo!!

Congratulations! Hope you have a fantastic trip!

You can find plenty of places to anchor along the ditch. Just stay clear of the channel and have your anchor light on.
