My props are rated for 1200 HP and should not be breaking. I'm sure it is a combination of several factors and is costly and frustrating when it happens.
A few more pics to share.
1) the Bank just outside the marina entrance at Cat Cay 9 miles south of Bimini where we cleared customs.
2) Bob catching a few winks as we idled 40 miles back to Nassau. Check the position of throttles and shifters. Port side at idle / neutral as no prop. Center pushed forward to about 2,800 RPM. Starboard was about 1800 RPM with starboard tab down and port side all the way up. Sounds strange but was able to steer within 5 deg one way or the other by adjusting tabs, throttles until someone moved on the boat then had to look for new setup. LOL We were running reasonably on coarse for me to catch a few minutes of shut eye.
3) Pulling into the anchorage at Big Major
4) Northern Lights
5) Marc swimming with the dolphins.... er I mean pigs. LOL

We hope to see in this area soon. If you make it this far we will meet you with a welcome you won't forget. Bikinis and Painkillers.
The folks from the Dominican Republic try the trip across the Mona Passage/Straits in skiffs at night.,, some make it and some are not as lucky.
On the West end of PR, you have Aquadilla and Mayaguez as big ports, Towards the south-west there is Cabo Rojo/Boqueron with some small marina complex/Clubs. Ponce on the South cost is large and then Fajardo in the East end has several very Large marinas, Between Ponce and Fajardo on the East coast you have Palmas Del Mar Resort and Marina south of Humacoa and of course you have San Juan on the north coast
Off of Fajardo is a small semi private island called Palomino which is owned by the El Conquistor Resort
also you have the Islands of Culebra and Vieques on the east end of PR,, Beautiful islands and great beaches
Enjoy the trip and hope the Seas are good to you, Please keep us posted on your progress.
