  1. And enjoy the Banks crossing. Flatter water, and we've never seen less than 10 ft (we draw 6) on the route described. It's straightforward to anchor on the banks near Northwest Channel out of sight of any land, for the night, and go through the channel in daylight. Just be sure to anchor well off the magenta lines - there will be the occasional fishing boat or Inter-island boat moving around at night. Have a great time.
  2. That route would work fine. But from Miami we go directly to Bimini, and then either a) stop at Bimini to check in, or b) get on the banks either side of Moselle Banks, which is just north of Bikini, and then proceed to Mackie, Northwest Shoal, and then check in either at Chub Cay or Nassau. But if you are departing from Lake Worth Inlet, save the Miami side trip and cross straight to West End or Freeport, check in, and then proceed to the Banks and Northwest Channel. Either way, enjoy. We have to pass on this winter in the Bahamas, and I'm whining already

    Another interesting boat

    You might include Niagara's on your list. Very well built, in Canada, by Hinterhoeller (who was factory manager for much of the early C&C build). They have the fundamental cruising attributes like tankage, ventilation, system accessability, etc, and still sail well. 35s are a great boat for fairly modest $, and they have done circumnavs. The 42 footers are a bit rare (21 built), but graceful, roomy, and sail well. A bit of a Canadian cult boat, so hold their value well. Did I mention they are handsome? Still in love with ours after 7 years.

    Coolboats to admire

    Re the W boat. Beautiful but..... I'm left wondering if maybe the best test of a designer's mettle is to create a really beautiful and terrific fast cruising boat 40 or so feet or less that still pleases our eyes. With real room for people. It must get easier to create grace and nice lines with longer boats. But what do I know?

    It's got a paint job that's shinier than my boat. Now I'm done admiring.

    My boat looks pretty damn ugly when our race results suck. But then I look in the mirror, and realize it's not the boat that's ugly....
