COMMENT: Beach House – EN ROUTE- North Bimini, Bahamas to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida – USA
We\’re motoring across the Straits of Florida in flat conditions. It\’s like a highway out here with all the traffic going
to and from Bimini to Florida. We\’re getting 2.4 knots of current from the south which is the classic \”Gulf Stream\” condition.
The current charts predict up to 3.5 knots within the next 4 miles. It\’s giving us a bit of a push only; as we\’re crossing it.
We\’ll be staying in the Ft. Lauderdale area for a month – initially at the New River City Marina in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.
We\’ll move as soon as a private marina has an opening. The season\’s almost done.
Scott and Nikki
