In 1979 I took delivery of a new 38 Foot Magnum Sport, and my wife and I took another couple over to Bimini for the weekend. I'll see if I can find a picture and post.
Left from Ft Lauderdale on a bright sunny day in May. Water was calm all the way and we made the trip just cruising in about an hour and half.
The return trip was something else. I don't want to say how big the waves were, as time has taken some of the edge off, but I do remember as the boat climbed the face of the waves, the tachs would start dropping down until the engines were going to stall, and then the boat would drop off the other side of the wave and we would start the process all over again.
Six hours of climbing and dropping...just like ocean racing, only in slow motion.
I do remember passing a 60 foot Hatteras and waving as if nothing was wrong on our boat. Of course I had instructed the girls to stop upchucking over the transom if we passed other boats, didn't seem to fit in the Magnum image.
Finally made it back to Port Everglades and had to hold offshore for another hour, as a heavy rain squall had cut off all visibility and I couldn't find the entrance (no radar).
Great trip....make sure you do it in a boat you can really trust and just be careful of the weather!!
