I have a 6''4" draft and have spent a total of about 9 months cruising the Bahamas. My recommendation is to skip Bimini, go for the deep water to the north, anchor out overnight on the banks and check in at Nassau. Going south to Georgetown, use the Exuma sound south of Staniel Cay. Stay out of the Abacos, unless you want to deal with only traveling at high tide. Whatever you do, don''t try to get back to the States north of the Abacos...you won''t make it even at high tide.
