Suggest using the Explorer Chart Books for the Abacos as they are the most detailed and current...way better than the Maptech. You can get just about anything you need in Marsh Harbor so you''ll have no real provisioning concerns. I do suggest that you bring as many engine and critical parts spares as possible as such stuff is quite expensive to get shipped in there and it takes a while. Of course you''ll need the $300 fee for entry...bummer. But the water is gorgeous and the people are friendly and there is a great cruising community there...lobster season ends april 1st so you might want to arrive a few days earlier! <grin>

Hi everyone. We''re taking our Island Packet 40'' to the Abacos in April for the first time. We''re doing the usual info gathering,ie; web, charts, etc. Is there any general or specific info we should know about, say from those of you who have just returned or go often? I understand the hurricane''s have changed things somewhat, looking for info we can''t find anywhere''s else. Thanks a bunch!!!
