    Praise for Explorer Charts
    Posted: 28 Jan 2016 08:55 AM PST
    In response to some recent criticism of Explorer Charts, I’d like to report that my wife and I used them extensively on a recent 9 month cruise and we have nothing but praise. We crossed to West End, then up to the Walkers Cay area, then down through the rest of the Abacos. Next was Eleuthera. We had the unexpected pleasure to meet Monty and Sara Lewis in Spanish Wells- nice folks! Then on down throughout the Exuma chain to Georgetown, and on the return trip north we skirted by Nassau, then over to the Berries, then Cat Cay, then back to Florida. The Explorer Charts are great. I am a land surveyor with 30+ years experience in surveying and mapping. On this trip we routinely used both electronic and paper copies, constantly checking one against the other, and comparing that with our own real-time depth soundings and visual observations. We found the horizontal mapping to be dead-on accurate, and the charted depths a little on the conservative side, as they should be. We had a great time exploring and taking some shoal draft routes, carefully nosing into skinny water while dutifully using visual piloting and minding the tide. The Explorer Charts never let us down.

    I feel your pain. If you look at
    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TheFlyingPigLog/conversations/messages/438 you’ll see the analysis of an issue which follows us around yet today. The most recent was that it might have prevented us from completing our journey to becoming SSCA commodores, for which we had qualified by the time that was written, but never bothered to pursue. Of course, the mistaken rumor, in our case merely propagated by those listening in on the VHF in Elizabeth Harbour, not the vast AC mailing list as yours will fight, has grown substantially in the amplified retelling; the last one I heard was that I had shut down all of Long Island Sound. I disabused the guy who at the time was the incoming SSCA president of the notion, yet, it was presented to the SSCA board two years later. Fortunately, I’d written the post in the link in real time, and was able to point the new president, when he called to see if there was any defense, to it. If I’d not, and had just let it lay, or if Clark hadn’t come directly to us and done his rant, I might never have figured it out – or even known that it was out there – and the SSCA board would have, given the number of members who no doubt have heard the rumor, and passed it along, assumed it was true.
    I presume you’ve sent your rebuttal to AC; I hope he’s man enough to post a retraction. I unequivocally flog your books; I bought a complete new set before we left this time, even though we’re probably not going to do more
    than the Abacos in this trip. I’m about to go back (February), and bemoan the fact that I’m stuck with Navionics (Raymarine plotter), a set which has led to more than one loss, at least one of which I actually saw. We also
    summer there, in preference to the god-awful heat and bugs in Vero Beach…
    One question: We draw 7′ and depended on your routing in Comer Channel when transiting from Long Island to the Raggeds (as they call them locally). With all the excitement in that area, are there updates of which we should
    be aware, or are the current routings still valid?
    Maptech puts CDs with their chartbooks; I use OpenCPN as my nav desk backup to that awful Navionics and integrate those to the NOAA set in the US. Have you considered doing the same with your chartbooks? I have no idea how I’d
    integrate to my plotter, but at least I could see it on my screen below decks. As it is now, we use your waypoints (including the recent updates you put out from time to time) fearlessly; regardless of what our plotter
    shows, we have total confidence in hitting your waypoints. A case in point is the entry from the north in Elizabeth Harbour – a narrow, twisty, awful, butt-puckering ride if you’re not standing on the bow – or using your
    waypoints. Otto faithfully pivots at each waypoint and we watch the coral go by on either side, without touching the wheel. Thank you for that!

    We plan on cruising around Berry Islands, Exumas down to Land & Sea Park and back up to Abacos. I’m particularly concerned about having internet connection in Exumas. I must have at least intermittent access for my US Clients during our 3 mos cruising. Has anyone had any experience with Global Marine Network or can recommend another satellite internet service?

    We’ll soon be making our first trip to the Bahamas. We have propane refrigeration. A common “20 lb” exchange tank lasts about 10 days. There’s plenty of info on diesel, gas and dockage availability and prices, but only occasional mentions of propane. Do we exchange or refill? Planning on 3-4 months for maybe a Bimini / Berry / Exumas / Georgetown / Eleuthera loop.

    Hello Explorer team,
    Forgive me if I’m failing to do my research, but how would you suggest the best way to find exact tides in correlation to Nassau’s listed tides? Am I missing a + or – somewhere that will tell me the tides in Berries/Exumas? Sorry for my ignorance, I felt like I would ask the experts before using the Google.
    Thank you for advice!

(2) best anchoring locations for night. We are planning a counter clockwise route leaving Nassau going south through the Exumas and return Nassau. Also any great restaurants along that route to have dinner where we san sailing in. Thanks, Bill

    I feel your pain
    Posted: 15 Jan 2016 02:31 PM PST
    I spent about 20 years as a land surveyor and was always amazed at the comments that a homeowner would make as I was setting his property corner marker…”That’s not where it goes…They’re all 100′ lots here…Don’t you know how to measure ??? ”
    In his mind what I did was a simple task that any idiot could accomplish …I could never figure out what made them think what I did as a seasoned professional was so easy.
    This was all before Facebook & the Internet ….At least he had the courage to confront me face to face on the lawn…Sometimes I’d try to enlighten him as to my methods & sometimes I’d walk with him to where he thought his other property corner should be & I’d stretch out the tape to 100’…As you probably have guessed it was always more the 100′ between his two points….With that he would walk back in to his house.
    Unfortunately there will be NO poetic justice here but know this ….I for one and countless others have been traveling down your recommended routes with total confidence for 16 years…
    Your work product speaks for itself..Having been cruising in these islands in the early 80’s without GPS or even usable Loran with Yachtsman’s Guide sketch charts only, even your very first charts were a welcome & quantum leap forward …

    Hurricane Joaquin Supplies Missing to Acklins
    Posted: 15 Jan 2016 04:28 AM PST
    Hello all,
    Shortly after the storm, World Jet through pilot, Mr. Edward Hinkley, (561.718.9051) offered to fly needed supplies to Long and Crooked Islands. We boxed up 4 large containers of emergency supplies containing chain saws, starter battery chargers, solar panels, non perishable foods, roofing materials, tarps, ropes, flashlights and clothing, among other things. We dropped the boxes off at World Jet at the airport. The four boxes were from Home Depot and had our names and phone numbers on them, both Bahamian and USA. The boxes were specifically addressed to Mr. Moses Forbes and Mr. Cargain Forbes of Salina Point, Acklins. Moses was the maintenance person in charge of the power plant in Salina Point and Cargain, was a police officer who worked out of the Spring Point Station and lived in Salina Point. Both men were friends of mine many years ago and I wanted to be sure they and their families received the supplies.
    I have contacted Mr. Hinkley several times and have not been able to find out where the boxes went. He said that if they didn’t make the plane, they would be shipped by boat. I have tried many times to get through to these two individuals but have no response from them. If anyone knows how to contact them or to find out where the four boxes went, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    looking for crossing advice or a buddy boat
    Posted: 11 Jan 2016 03:17 PM PST
    At the beginning of February, Margaret and I would like to attempt our first crossing to the Bahamas. We would like to go to the Abacos on our 36′ Grand Banks trawler with a cruising speed of around 9 knots. We have considerable cruising experience, having come down from Buffalo NY a few times, and have just returned to the Punta Gorda FL area from the Keys. While we were in Marathon, we met sailors that were waiting for their crossing window. We have the waterway guide. We know we should wait until no north winds are present and the seas calmed, but we seem confused now, so we would like some advice on our plannings:

    Should we return to Marathon and head for the Bahamas via the Hawk Channel?
    Should we cross the Okeechobee and use an east coast port? Which one and why?
    Should we head directly for the Abacos or go to Bimini first?
    Is anyone with experience going there about this time. Can we join you?
    Smooth waters, and thanks. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Bahamas Chatter: “A Nassau Alternative” plus 1 more
    A Nassau Alternative
    Posted: 04 Jan 2016 04:16 PM PST
    For years, we have gone through Nassau Harbour on our way to the Exumas, sometimes stopping at a marina, sometimes pushing on across the Yellow Bank. This year we tried something new: We went outside of Paradise Island (it was New Years Day and the tour boats were like locusts) for a beautiful view of Atlantis and the rest of the island. We came in on the eastern end of the harbour and went around the corner to Palm Cay Marina on the southeast coast.

    We were more than delighted with our stay there. First of all, after a warm and rolly day at sea across the Northeast Providence Channel, we were refreshed with a dip in the saltwater pool overlooking the Yellow Bank. The use of the courtesy car allowed us to go to the nearby locals supermarket, Super Value, and stock up for better prices than we would find on Bay Street. The staff was friendly and helpful and made our short stay most pleasant and the dockage rates were no higher than in the harbour, in some cases less expensive. There is a lovely restaurant, a tiki bar on the beach, a laundry, and a small gift shop. Exiting the next morning for the Exumas was quick and easy from there, a straight shot out and across the Yellow Bank.

    Make sure you arrive before dark as a security chain blocks the entrance in the nighttime.


    Berry Islands: A Not-so-overlooked Cruising Ground
    Posted: 04 Jan 2016 04:04 PM PST
    Often the Berry Islands are “fly-over” territory for Bahamas cruisers headed to Nassau or the Exumas or beyond. Yet their popularity has increased as evidenced by greater numbers of boats lingering and enjoying the beautiful clear water, the great fishing, the possibility for secluded anchorages. Indeed, many folks are spending the entire winter cruising season there, gunkholing about or extending their stay at the excellent Great Harbour Cay Marina for some reasonable dockage fees. The marina staff goes out of their way to make guests feel at home and taken care of, to the smallest details. And it is a very secure all-around protection from bad weather. The village of Bullocks Harbour has some services to offer with two excellent beachfront restaurants for special dining, in addition to the village cafes. Several flights a day come in and out of Nassau, plus several times a week from Ft. Lauderdale, making it more accessible to bring visitors in to yachts.

    Of course, there is also Chub Cay Marina, which is often a stopover for boats transiting the Bank or anglers eager to catch the big fish. And don’t forget the iconic Flo’s Conch Bar at Little Harbour Cay, where Chester greets you with a smile and serves up some of his mom’s recipe of conch fritters.

    For the flyfishing enthusiast, there are miles of flats where the elusive bonefish lure fishermen to try to catch them.

    The string of cays from Stirrup to Chub present a number of choices for enjoying this beautiful archipelago.

    Checking in at Bimini

    We are jumping from F Lauderdale to Bimini, when the weather clears, and would like to know if North or South is a more convenient check in to get a 90 day cruising permit? We’ve been told that you must go to the airport on South Bimini, and that North might make you pull into a marina to clear. We are quiet, nature loving cruisers, who prefer good holding to Bars and Marinas… But we want the fastest clearance possible. Thanks for the advice!

    From a Long Island resident, here are some of the many things that would be appreciated for any of the southeast Bahama islands that were hit so hard by Hurricane Joaquin:

    Household items is next- pillows, bedding, plates, pots n pans, silverware, cooking utensils- you know. Those things you take for granted till you are missing them- mixing bowls, wooden spoons, serving utensils, storage containers, cutting boards, knives, cups, rugs……..Most houses that are being built are at drywall stage. Some still need windows and doors but I know you all couldn’t get away with those!! lol

    ANYTHING someone somewhere on this island can use- trust me!

     Welcome to the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, your own paradise in the middle of the beautiful Exumas.

    The Staniel Cay airstrip has been closed since April, so this is good news for visitors to Staniel Cay. Staniel Cay Yacht Club continues to get very high marks from cruisers, as in http://cruisersnet.net/?p=126893, because, after all, they are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!!

    Update from Staniel Cay Yacht Club:
    The Staniel Cay airstrip is on schedule to reopen at the end of November. Visit Staniel Cay Yacht Club at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show (Booth 174) for additional information.
