Ah, Yes......

Ah, yes, the waves, the wind, the sun, the Abacos.

Guess what? Yep.....

Yeah, another. I stick "em" in between, thought you wouldn't notice. Another Abaco sunset.

Low Tide

Another One

Yep, another one. No worries, I'm seeking therapy. K.

Alan's-Pensacola Cay

Alan's-Pensacola, we have stopped off here a few times, one of our favorites, great mangrove flat with big spooky bones and plenty of 3-5 lb 'cudas. Just ask Bill & Dave!
Now ain't that a boat! She just loves a good blow, here we are sheltered, 15-20kts, normal in the Bahamas. We drop an 88lb Delta on all chain, put out a 7:1 scope, put out the bridle, back down gently until we get a "set" then increase to 1,000 RPM, then 1,200. She usually grabs big time right away. If the anchorage is tight we shorten up the scope after we are well set, usually never less than 5:1 including the bow pulpit to water. We have been in 30-40kt squalls, and one that a neighbour boat with a wind thingamajig says was 55kts during a squall. We held fast. Easy here compared to Georgian Bay.

Ted & Tim, local fishermen we met at Alan's-Pensacola Cay. They were running low on supplies, we traded gas and groceries for fresh conch, grouper and stone crab!
