Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    There is a good ships store on Highborne cay with a lot of good stuff
    for the Bahamas
    also a lot of creatures swimming around the cleaning table

    also the restaurant has good food if you don't feel like cooking and a nice view

    Pretty good reads!

    I just sailed a 43 foot cat from Ft. Pierce. We did inland water until Lake Worth inlet and crossed over at 3:30 pm. A solid 11 hour crossing going 7 knots and crossed by Memory Rock. Checked in customs at Green Turtle on the 3rd day. Ended up in Marsh Harbor a few days, Hope Town, Little Harbour, Petes Pub, and back. Check out Mermaid Reef and Coral Gardens in Abacoa off Elbow Cay (I think). You might not make it into the Petes Pub harbor but it is super cool if you can - gets shallow.

    Hope Town is definitely worth the explore. Marsh harbor is a good re-supply place. They have a huge supermarket/grocery store. Not much else there.

    I was only there like 10 days averaging 30 miles or so a day if we were traveling somewhere (between 6 and 9 knots depending on the wind and day)


    Have fun!
