HELP: Crossing from Ft Lauderdale to West End

Daniel PalinDaniel Palin Posts: 6 Greenhorn
Hello Everyone, I am new to this Forum. Seems like there are a lot of very knowledgeable people on here so hopefully someone can help.

I am planning on Crossing over to West End next June (2015), I have already made reservations to stay at Old Bahama Bay. Here is my Question: When leaving Lake Worth Inlet is there an exact GPS Coordinate to set as my waypoint for West End. I have the GPS Coordinates for Old Bahama Bay but I am assuming there is a Marker Buoy or Channel to plot towards first? Correct? Also any recommendations on a place to leave my truck & trailer? We will be staying there 5 or 6 nights. Is Old Bahama Bay a good place to stay or is there another place you regular crossers would recommend? As you can probably tell this will be my first crossing. My boat is a 31' Fountain Sportfish with Twin Merc 200's.

Thanks, Daniel
