I was boatless for the last two years, hence no bimini trips for me, but I plan on heading over a couple of times this year for sure. I usually stay on the boat at the bluewater but with so many new things at the Sands, I plan on staying there for sure. Do they have showers with hot water for the people that stay on the boat at Sands? I don't recall seeing them the couple of times I walked around there.

Yes they do have those amenities but they are slated for refurbishing. The work is more than likely to be accomplished before Memorial day.

Just curious, do you feel that vessel is not safe for the run?

He's taken that boat before-- many people go on much smaller vessels. No issues as long as you pick your days correctly.

Meant no offense toward him. I was just curious as to the size of boat people are taking over. Bimini is on my bucket list for a destination in the future. I guess I was feeling small in my 228 Grady with a F225 seeing a lot of you guys are going over in larger, multi motor, boats.

Purely a curiosity question, nothing more.
