HerbDB We spent several months in Marsh Harbor and observed a number of people leaving boats at the marina and flying back to the states. Marsh Harbor is protected and the airport has regular service to and from airports in Florida. The Cays of the Sea of Abaco are a great cruising ground.

Vasco It's a great place to sail. The most reasonable place to leave the boat and it's as sheltered as you can get, is hole #3 in Georgetown. They've put in piles there and you can get a slip for about $400 a month. This is in water storage.

There are spots where you can haul such as Green Turtle Cay in the Abacos and Georgetown marine in GT but I have no idea of the cost.

SecondWindNC Many have done just that in the Bahamas; it's all a matter of finding a place where you feel comfortable.

A couple from our dock is headed down now on their PSC 34 and plan to leave it at Guana Cay to return to the states; they will be returning south and taking the boat down to the Exumas later. My parents have left boats in both Hopetown and Georgetown at various times.

Maybe someone else can speak more specifically about the costs, but I wouldn't think it'd be too outrageous.

Leaving the Boat in the Bahamas

I have kept my Pacific Seacraft 37 cutter for a year in Grenada, and another year in St. Lucia. I found good marinas in both places where I could get boat watching while I was in the states. I am thinking about doing this in the Bahamas next year. Is this possible? Is it a good place to sail? Will my boat be safe? Is the cost reasonable? Any and all comments are welcome. Note that I draw under 6 feet, and I understand that is the magic number for sailing there. Thanks!
