Leaving Ft Pierce on June 6th or 7th to Elbow. Returning on the 15th or 16th.

Planing on clearing at GT.

Planning to take my 27 CC from Ft Pierce or LW inlet oner to GTC mid Dec 2019 until Mid to late Feb 2020. I have spent the last 20 to 30 winters in GTC and have run across with friends a couple of times but this will be the first trip in my own boat. My biggest headache so far is finding a secure place to leave my truck and trailer for the 2 to 2 1/2 months we will be there. Does anyone have any leads on where to leave my truck and trailer for that long of a period of time?

Planning to make the same run on June 8, staying at Sea Spray for the week. Trailering down from Charleston, SC on June 7, but may depart from Ft.Pierce. This will be my first trip, so hoping to follow others headed in the same direction.

I have used Village Marina on Torpey Road in Fort Pierce for the past few years, keeping my truck and trailer there for 6-8 weeks at a time. they are super people and live on the premises. I'll be going over in mid-May of this year and keeping my truck and trailer there again this year. Very reasonable rates.

I'm trying to plan a trip from Charleston as well, but probably more like late July. Would be my first trip by boat also. I'm thinking Lake Worth Inlet to West End then on to Green Turtle area. Have purchased the Dodge's 2019 Cruising Guide to Abacos and am studying.

The Cruising Guide is a must for travel in the Abacos.
Keep in mind that you can go to White Sound Press, the publishers of the guide, and down load all of the Dodge way points for about $4.

Having every one of them on my chartplotter sure took a lot of the stress off our trip there.

Awesome. Didn’t realize that. Will save a bunch of time manually building routes.

It sures does.
Before our trip over I was planning my route and realized how many way points I had to enter. It was nice being able to click on a way point to create my route.
And once there, haveing every one of themreally helped with our day trips.

The Abaco island chain is pretty big so you're going to need to be more specific. As for the draft, 2.5' of water is easy stuff.

Here is the route. Depending on tide, you can get in close to the beach but be sure to know if the tide is coming in or going out so that you aren’t there longer than planned.

Without a doubt, you need to order the cruising Guide to Abaco from White Sound Press.

Here is a good site from a video blog that will give you a lot more insight
