Planning stages to make another run over to Bimini on jetskis from Baker Haulover, full loop around and maybe run south to other islands. Thinking June time frame but nothing set in stone just yet.
I see FPC is schd for 6/19... anyone else planning?

Bimini is getting weird........owner of Big John's bar was killed last year at his home in Bimini Bay, a local was killed a month later via the same means (multiple gun shots). Lots of media reports they took the bar owner (he was American) to the local hospital and authorities refused to allow him to get medivac'd out to Miami. Bimini and the Bahamas in general will surely get rough if the tourists don't come and fund their existence.

FPC has postponed their Bahamas 2020 trips due to Covid.

I made this trip a few years ago (Miami to Bimini). I took a 27' glasstream with a 496/Bravo1. The weather was supposed to be 2-3 footers. But as soon as we got to the gulf stream it was more like 4-5 footers. But that wasn't bad compared to our return from Bimini... On the way back to Miami we got 6-8 footers and lots of rain THE WHOLE WAY... instead of a 1 hour 30 minute trip... it took us almost 4 hours to get back. You know what they say... Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor... anyways, we launched from matheson and hammocks and shot out through stiltsville and shot up to Bimini. When we got to Bimini, we docked up at Big Game resort and did all our paper work there.
