No we’ll be gassing up in Bimini, Chubb, and Nassau on the way over and back.

Will most likely be heading to Bimini 6/11 for 1-3days, 37 Formula, blue & white.
Probably head south to Sapona and Honeymoon Harbour for some mayhem. Always up for checking new stops out so if ya see us feel free to say hello.

Well last years trip was basically a disaster. We got over to bimini that morning, throttled back and got water in both engines. Right side fired back up, left would not. Due to a bad compression gauge (didn't know it was bad) I thought I had bent a valve, so gave up on that engine. we idled around bimini for a week and met a tow boat offshore and was towed back to dania inlet. Got home and figured out it was only fouled plugs. I had extra plugs with me and could have replaced them and gone on if I would have known. My wife, daughter, and son in law enjoyed bimini but I was bummed out to say the least.

Thankfully, the girls at staniel have comped us the room from last year and we are reserved from june 3rd thru the 6th if anybody wants to travel with us.

Right now I have begun to dig into the boat to address any potential weak areas. Replacing the internal exhaust flappers with new units, etc.
