Default Is there an Official Abacos 2019 thread started yet?

Just wondering - I see the Bimini thread has already been created.

We take the boat over every summer but have a tough decision this year… we’re thinking about maybe doing the Exuma‘s instead, or maybe try to do both by boat. Either way, we will be in Abaco a couple of times this summer just not sure which way we’re going to take the boat, east or southeast.

If we get a window we are going to make a run from PBI to the Abacos for Spring Break, 3/23-3/30. The plan is to clear customs and overnight in West End and run to GTC in the morning. It's our first trip and we've been given the advice to wait until we confirm a weather window to book an AirBNB or VRBO.

We're going in a 2011 Everglades 325CC with twin 350's. I have the Guide to the Abacos, done a ton of reading on here as well as conversations with friends who have made the trip. Hoping to find someone to cross with Sat/Sun/Mon although that time of year is going to certainly going take a little luck with the weather. We are prepared to leave the boat in West End if necessary on the return and fly back. It's two families, with 4 kids ranging from 8-13. I would appreciate any recommendations on places to stay and general trip advice.

Be aware that West End Old Bahama Bay is having some legal issues. At this point it is unclear how many docks that they are going to be allowed to maintain. Fuel and Customs will continue to be available regardless, but access to the rest of the Marina seems to be a bit up in the air. See the other threads active on this board regarding this topic.

What size boat? Not judging just curious. We’ve talked about doing Harbour Island or further south to change up from Abacos.

That said...
March 23-30 Elbow Cay
May 25-June 1 Elbow Cay
