    One thing I've heard a bunch of times about the trip is to leave your return date open. It seems that far too many people have chosen to return on a bad weather day because they had prior committments, like work.

    I know of a couple of guy's that do it every year in 22' Pathfinders. They go to Walkers Cay for a fishing tournament. But there is always 4 or more boats running.Pick your weather, epirb "A MUST", and yes, i'm with Daze, artilery !!! Personaly I would take a 12 Guage with 00 Buck, a 223 cal Mini 14, and of course my trusty 45 !!! The shot gun for a no miss spread, the 45 for up close knock down, and the Mini 14 so I can take their engine's out !!! Wardey

    Yeah, and look where he is.

    Weather and safety eqpt. is the key. Also travel with another boat and make sure your radios work. If the weather is fine then no problem. Otherwise, stay in port!

    I have made the crossing on 50 ft sport fishermans and if it gets snotty, watch out.

    I remember reading a Hot Boat article about a 1972 CV-21 Glastron Carlson that made that trip. It was a 455 Olds and Berkley Jet Pump. They took extra fuel but had a hard time finding good fuel once they got there. Imagine running a Jet Pump that far and in Offshore Conditions!....Mike.
