To those that have pets on board. I sent in my International moneys order, and the proper form on the 16th of Sept, 2017. We left Bakers Haulover for Bimini on the 24th of November. Without having received any formal paper work back. To this day, my mail delivery/receive service has not received any paper work. Tis the Bahamas…
With that in mind, I cleared into Bimini. The very nice lady at Customs, went through the usual paperwork, and questions. When she asked if I had any pets on board, I said yes, but, and then I went through the above paragraph with her. I showed her the receipts for the money orders, the Nassau form, the health certificate for Bentley, etc.
She looked at everything, shook her head, pushed all the papers back to me. So, on my cruising permit, next to the dingy and motor, the skiff and motor that I tow, the fishing poles on board, and the slings, is listed…………..ready for this……… (1) dog….
What a great country…not tied up in red tape at all…denO and Bentley

We are planning a crossing from West Palm to the West End around the second week of January 2018. This being our first trip we would like to travel with others planning to cross to the Bahamas. We travel in a Carver 450 Voyager so our speed can vary to 20 MPH. Please let us know if you might be interested.
Sea Conditions for Crossing from Ft. Laudeerdale

Can anybody tell me where I can get accurate sea conditions for crossing the stream. We’re heading to Bimini. From what I can see on the off shore reports it looks like 2 ft seas, with a NE wind. Can I rely on that information? Also, anything we should know going into Bimini.
