Default Abacos Bahamas crossing video teaser + getting pumped for this years trip, Enjoy!!!!

It's that time of the year again! We are preparing or have already prepared I should say for our Abacos 2015 trip. So to help pass the time and create some excitement I created a video of from last years trip!

We will be leaving from West Palm again this year. Our crossing (weather window dates) are June 5th and 6th. We plan to return June 14th.

Our destination is Elbow Cay. We have booked a night at Green Turtle mid week to break the trip up a little. We also booked our final night in West End to break the trip back home up a little bit. We will towing to and from Charleston, SC!

I took over 500 photos last year and close to 3 hours of video. Its nearly impossible to create a short video with that amount of content. I did my best just to get it to 20 minutes! I hope you enjoy!

The last photo at the end of the Video was taken in the gulf stream on the way back to West Palm. 2 small makeshift pontoons, plywood deck and wooden mini console, 2 wire lawn chairs and a jug of water. It was abandoned and its was fairly beat up. Very interesting none the less.

Hmmm I thought I would be able to embed the Video as a player within the thread. So far I can only post the link to the Video. I will mess around with it and see what I can do. Otherwise just click the link.

Same with us, I think we started planning 3-4 weeks after we got back last time. Can't beat it in my opinion!

Bellamy,
we are planning to cross that Sunday of same weekend you are crossing. We are going to be at GTC next door to Bluff House Marina. Going for two weeks, but will be going to Hopetown for a couple nights for something different around weekend after we go over.
What kind of boat will you be in? Keep an eye out for us. Boat in the signature.

Sorry to hear about your loss! At least get downtown one evening and have a nice dinner while your here. The trip to from Florida to the Bahamas is more reasonable than one might think dont count it out just yet!

Hey VC, I will keep an eye out. I can see a Bluewater from a mile away! I will be in contact with you as time gets closer. Catch up when we get down there. Maybe lunch and a drink Pete's!

We will be in a 2015 SH 30 Gamefish, ice blue hull, white hardtop and twin white yamaha 300's. If my buddy ever gets the measurements done it should have "Good One" on the back by the time we go!

Awesome video!!
We'll be on Elbow Cay for the week after July 4th, leaving out of Jupiter either 7/5 or 7/6, back 7/16 or so. I'll keep an eye out for you guys.
Cheers,
Richard

Thanks for the video. Makes me want to plan boating trips a little farther from home!

If we leave the 5th we will most likely clear customs in Spanish and stay on GT the first night. If weather pushes us to the 6th we clear Spanish and go straight to Elbow.

Either way it sounds like we will be on the same path about the same time. We will keep an eye out.
