Went to the Bahamas in a Ocke Mannerfelt 28, but do not remember if we went through the pass. We went Lauderdale to Bimini to Chub Cay to the Atlantis in Nassau.

BRIAN,
I'VE GONE TO THE BAHAMAS MANY TIME. I'D ARRIVE
IN WEST PALM AT ABOUT 5AM , CLEAR THE ICW AT THE CRACK OF DAWN.BY 7-8AM I'D BE AT THE WEST END.
IT IS USUALLY VERY CALM THIS TIME OF THE DAY .TRAVEL AROUND THE SHORE LINE TO FREEPORT, CALL CUSTOMS (BRING EXTRA BEER , THEY LIKE AMERICAN BEER),SHOW THEM ALL YOUR PAPER WORK AND CASH .....YOUR IN, SEE YA AT THE RACE ....BRIAN , I STILL THINK YOUR A P2 BOAT !!!!

Brian,
Did the run last year with Stu.....a little ruff on the way back, but in your ride it would be easier. I like the idea of leaving at daybreak...should be an easy ride at that hour...customs and such is easy....call me...

John G:

I'll let you take a spin in the Top Gun in Corpus - you'll see a legit P3 Boat! I bought the radar gun and donated it to APBA in Marathon. Let's see if you go over 100 in your 2,000 hp Fountain. Any board members know the speed of a 42 Fountain with twin 1,000's and six drives ? My boat weighs 13,200 lbs by the scale in Savannah - 38 Top Gun w/ 575's - porcelin toilet , extended cover girl cabin, 2500 watt stereo - 3 batteries - 3 people racing - 88 mph ! John what is your record this year? haha - brian

PS. Let's make the pass to the Bahamas together - BH
