I know some of you have cruised this area - nobody recognizes it?

Sorry, fallard. I can see the resemblance but Sandy Cay has palm trees, we wouldn't have it to ourselves for an afternoon in February and, most importantly it's not north of Eleuthera Island, which is in the Bahamas. I suppose I should have said NE of Eleuthera because there is nothing due north until you hit North Carolina/Virginia. But to NE there is the ......

Nope. Sorry, I hadn't looked at the other answers.

Look North.

The Mooring base is Marsh Harbour, so the usual charter cruising ground is to the north side of Great Abaco. Ebs001 and Mark have both been to Marsh Harbour so I though one of them might recognize it - I guess it was tougher than I anticipated.

It was created in the eighties when a large channel was dredged. I think Iíve run out of clues except to say that I used the existing clues and Google and was able to find it, so it must be possible.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well done! Shell Island, Abacos, Bahamas also known as Spoil Bank Cay, because it was created from the dredging spoil - you can see the channel in the satellite image. Just west of the northern end of Guana Cay.

Sorry Rob, Shell Island, Panama City Beach, Fl. was on the right track but it was the wrong Shell Island.
