Miami /Port Everglades is about 58 miles to bimini, the Florida Powerboat Club, has a poker run every year. They go to Bimini and end up in Paradise Island(Atlantis). One guy did the run in an Active 28' single, No Problems!!!

how do most people deal with engine failures, especially those with single engines? i understand aome of the tow companies come all the way out to get you. Are the fees crazy?

Default Bimini only 58 miles?

We went from somewhere just north of Miami to Freeport Bahamas, and I thought it was somewhere around 70 miles?
Steve, (BoardGod), or Bill P, what did your GPS say??

Ya need 30 feet and an extra motor to get you home. I fish way out all the time and always feel comfortable in 4 to 6 with a 33 center console

We left out of Riveria Beach (W.Palm) and went 120 East. You'll run right into West End. Now that was some rough ass water- 10 -12's in the Gulfstream that day - BH
