    I downloaded the form and instructions to receive a permit to bring my dog to the Bahamas. I sent a money order for $15 ($10 for the application and $5 for the fax service). It has been about 5 weeks ago and still no permit. I noticed on this site the the fee has gone up.

    Am I still covered? How do I get my permit if they don’t fax it to me? Is there a time frame for the vet’s health certificate? Is a shot record sufficient? Can I get the permit when I get there?

    Any response and help is GREATLY appreciated.

    Thank you

    We are presently located in NC and waiting on the season to end before heading to the east coast of Florida. (West Palm Beach area) and looking to head to West End in mid to late November. We are looking for other boaters to join in the trip. We are in a 30′ Bayliner and cruise around 20knts. We will eventually cruise our way through to DR and then on to home in Cabo Rojo, PR.

    Thank you,

    A good friend and long, long time boater. Mike Anderson known as “Mikey” has passed away on his beloved boat Silent Flight, in Salt Pond, Long Island. Mike and I go way back to the days of St. Thomas, in Elephant Bay for 10 years…89 to 99 and before in the Bahamas.

    Mike was a solo sailor for most of his sailing life. He was always happy, and loved his rum. It is unclear how he died…suspected heart attack. He will be missed. Dog lover…avid spear fisherman and maker of lobster jerky.

    He was also a collector of glass fishing floats…because he went to places where the average cruiser never goes. He once told me he had 15 on his boat and a storage room full someplace else…..

    Bimini Sands Marina to reopen on September 21st
    READ MORE!

    Posted: 17 Sep 2017 04:39 AM PDT
    Bimini Sands Resort and Marina today announced that their property, located on South Bimini in The Bahamas, has emerged from Hurricane Irma without significant structural damage and is slated to reopen its doors to guests on Thursday, September 21, 2017.

    “We couldn’t be happier to report that Bimini Sands has weathered the storm and we’ll be ready to welcome our friends and loyal guests back to their home away from home very soon,” said Brad G. Michael, Bimini Sands’ Resort Coordinator. “I am grateful to our dedicated and hardworking team, who have been working around the clock to ensure our resort and marina are back up and running as soon as possible.”

    Bimini Sands is already making ice, has gasoline and diesel. The fact that the property suffered only minor damage to gutters, power slips on the docks and a few satellite dishes, can be attributed to its prime location, which is heavily protected by the island’s native mangroves.

    Irma Update for Ragged Island
    Posted: 14 Sep 2017 03:44 PM PDT
    Ragged Island was devastated by Hurricane Irma. Apparently, the seven people who were not evacuated from the island survived, but the town itself has been deemed “uninhabitable” by government authorities. Most of the buildings are leveled, except for the Silvertail Lodge and a few others, and no government structures were left standing. The oil depot at Gun Point was also wiped out. The folks that survived the hurricane have also left the island. This is sad news for the many cruising boats that visit the Ragged Islands during the winter season. There will be none of the already limited facilities available. Boats cruising to the Ragged Islands are truly on their own.

    Most Bahamas marinas open
    Posted: 14 Sep 2017 06:29 AM PDT
    The marine recreational sector of the Bahamas’ tourism industry is up and open for business. Most of the member marinas of the Association of Bahamas Marinas (ABM) are reporting no damage from hurricane Irma and are open and ready for business.

    “This hurricane caused great damage throughout the region and the southern Bahamas,” says ABM President, Stephen Kappeler, “and we sympathize with the citizens of the islands that were so badly affected. We are also deeply concerned about the welfare of citizens of the state of Florida, whose lives have been so disrupted by hurricane Irma,” he said.

    “However, we are greatly relieved that hurricane Irma by-passed so many of the islands in The Bahamas and spared most of our members from damage or dislocation,” said Kappeler.

    Peace and Plenty Hotel in George Town, Exuma, reported moderate damage to their dock but little damage otherwise.

    Exuma Yacht Club suffered serious damage to its docks. A major rebuild will be required.

    We had a report of Big Major’s Swimming Pigs with no harm done. The Central and Northern Exumas did not seem to suffer any damage except perhaps for beach erosion and some downed trees.

    Long Island was spared any major damage. The odd thing was all the water being pushed out of the bank side, leaving the western flats exposed.

    A video of Acklins showed a walk along the western shoreline revealing thousands of dead fish washed up. Again, water was pushed off the bank side exposing flats and habitats.

    Ragged Island took a bad hit with buildings destroyed.

    Bimini experienced water over the streets and many buildings with floors under water as well as marina docks under water and being hammered by waves. No report on the extent of damage.

    Sept. 9, From Dan at TCI Villas:
    Thankfully I still have not heard of any loss of life or injuries. We have heard back on the condition of most villas and almost without exception the damage is very minimal. A status on power/water/communications/airport is below

    Water – Statement from the water company – Following yesterday’s temporary switch on, Provo Water Company have identified and fixed a number of bursts caused by Hurricane Irma. We shall be switching on water supply again today between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., so once again encourage customers to fill water containers between those hours to have water available when the water supply is switched off again. We again request that any leaks or bursts observed are reported to 231-0705. This will enable us to record and attend to those leaks, to more quickly restore normal operations at the earliest opportunity. If you do not have cell service, you can report observed leaks via this page. Thank you for your assistance and patience while we restore the network.
    Power – Fortis trucks can be seen throughout the island making repairs. As soon as the airport opens Fortis said it will bring in 50+ additional workers to help get power lines restored. They estimate 2-3 weeks until power is largely restored. A statement from them is attached
    Communications – The cell phone voice network is mostly down however the cell phone data network is operating sporadicly. I have had success calling the island over the data network as opposed to the cell phone network. The free app “Whatsapp” can be used to make/receive voice calls over the data network.. This app also has a texting feature.
    Airport – PRESS RELEASE HURRICANE IRMA ?UPDATE? #2?: Flight Operations Soon Restored
    PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands, Saturday, September 9th, 2017– The Turks and Caicos Islands Airports Authority (TCIAA) announces that flight operations will soon be restored as we assess the aftermath of the storm and first focus on emergency and rescue flights.
    Scheduled carrier flights remain suspended within the Turks & Caicos Islands until further notice.
    Flight operations are expected to resume at all Airports as soon as possible, since the ” All Clear” has been issued.
    As the airport operator and air navigation service provider, the Airports Authority remains committed to the safety of aircraft, passengers, staff and other users of the airport. The Authority regrets any inconvenience caused and passengers are asked to contact their respective airlines for flight scheduling.
    The Airports Authority is grateful that we are able to survive this storm and will continue to focus on restoration efforts to ensure minimal disruption of service.
    END

    I previously mentioned that the beach in Turtle Cove is new and improved with a lot of sand. Here are some photos. This was taken in front of Conch Beach Villa (formerly Conch Pearl) which is just to the right of bridge road on coconut rd.

    I will continue to send updates as I know them.

    all best regards,

    We know that you, our subscribers to the Bahamas Chatter, are watching and praying that Hurricane Irma spares life and property as it passes through the Bahamas. We have let many of the facilities in the Bahamas know that we will be glad to post their updates and information here as they can send it. For any of you who have contacts and information on what is going on the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, and also suggestions for how to help, please send us a post here on the Chatter, or send an email to sara@explorercharts.com. We will be faithful to keep this forum open for news.

    We understand that BahamasAir has been flying residents off of the southeastern Bahamas and Ragged Island. As one Long Islander explained it, Nassau is the hub for all the Family Islands and when it is hampered, all of the islands suffer. It is not only the center for communications but also for distribution of supplies and aid.

    Here’s a heart-felt reply to our note to Chub Cay Marina:

    Hi. Thank you for your concern. After working so hard to get Chub back to where it was pre Matthew it is sad to see that Irma might undo it again. We have done all our preparation and have flown out most of our people. Now we just pray for the best. And not just for us but to all that’s in the path of Storming Irma.
    Stay safe everyone. Life is more important than anything else.

    Hurricane Irma Attacks Tortola from sailingscuttlebutt.com
    Surrounded by mangroves, Tortola’s Paraquita Bay in the British Virgin Islands is where charter companies hide their boats from approaching storms. But it proved to be insufficient when Hurricane Irma arrived on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

    Our thanks to Vicki Lathom and Barry Miller for this unusual shot from a radar app.

    Larry:

    Thought you’d be interested in a screen shot taken on a cell phone radar app that my partner, Barry Miller, just took of the eye of Irma. Look at Road Town, BVI. Right in the eye.

    Will the photo work for your Irma updates?

    We are planning to trek down the ICW to Florida this winter on our trawler. May be more interesting than desirable.
