|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.|

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!!

Waves up to 6 feet, very rolly but fast. We usually cross before a front and the front usually hits us on the bank. This time the winds before the front were very strong, a very mild front and then the winds stayed NW rather than clocking more so we crossed after the front. An enjoyable trip. Warm and sunny in Nassau.|
