eryka If you're route planning, I'd strongly consider checking it at Morgan's Bluff on Andros. We did this in early Dec; 26 hours from Key Biscayne. The anchorage at Morgan's is great in all but a north wind, and you wouldn't cross in a N wind anyway. The immigration folks were wonderful - they are normally stationed at the airport but they came to us, and we filled out paperwork sitting at a picnic table at Willies Wet Bar right there at the waterfront. They gave us 6 month cruising permits, no trouble. We'd heard stories from other people who were only given 2 or 3 months.

Rick, did you go NW Providence Channel and essentially run "offshore" the whole way from Florida to Nassau (seems like that's what you did), or did you to go Bimini, check in, and then run across the bank? We're a few years out from this trip, but already are route planning.

Keldee best place to cross is from Angelfish Creek leave at pre dawn and head for Bimini and be there by mid afternoon.Loved being able to stand at the bow shout "land-ho".Always wanted to do that ,great fun
Anyone who crosses the Gulf Stream with north in the wind are masochists as far as I am concerned I like it to be fun!!

carl762 Sounds like an amazing trip. Would scare the heck outta me at this point of my rather limited sailing life.

Melrna Three of my friends crossed yesterday. NW winds with 2 foot seas.. A nice run all the way across. Chuck reported wind 120 degrees off the port side, running full speed at 8 knots. Damm I am jealous.

AlanBrown Sanitie,

This may be what you're looking for. They offer wet and dry storage. Check out their website.

Indiantown Marina is located on the St. Lucie Canal
which links Stuart on the East Coast to Fort Myers on
the West Coast via Lake Okeechobee and the
Calloosahatchee River.

Good luck!
