FIRST TRIP TO THE BAHAMAS

Postby sailkane » Sun May 24, 2015 8:04 am

We bought our boat from Rhumbline ( a PDQ 34 , 2005 75 hp.) service was excellent start to finish and even after the sale they are always there.

We left Stuart Sunday, headed down to Lake Worth. Crossed over on Tuesday to West End.
Our first Gulf Stream Crossing and it was smooth. Since then we have done Great Sale Cay,Spanish Cay, Green Turtle and are heading to Great Guana today on our way to Marsh Harbour.

The boat is beautiful for the two of us and a big Lab.

Great Island boat.

That's great to hear. Enjoy it.
I'll be doing the Bahamas for the first time in November. Any tips are appreciated..

U.S. Customs decal.... Forget the small vessel option from US Customs and boarder protection....it was no help.

We bought at Costco 3 cases of gallon jug water for drinking and cooking(18 gallons total.

Food is expensive and not readily available. Bring most of your own.

Boat is so easy to handle and pilot over there. Any othe questions please ask.
