    Well as many of you know a few of us set out last year to Exuma and joined everyone in Bimini last year on the return. Well the Exuma crew is back at it again and @Andy S @1948Isaac @Ramblin Wreck and I will depart for Abaco Bahamas in the morning. This will be a 400+ mile round trip with a total of probably 600 miles done on the boats and the skis during this trip. We will be taking 2 skis and two boats. Feel free to track us along the way the below link should be live and moving around 6am. #abaco2017

    I'm not to keen on the 4 second period but we will be good it could be a lot worse that is for sure. The probability of @Ramblin Wreck and I just crossing the two skis tomorrow ahead of the boats has drastically reduced due to some work stuff getting in the way but I'm trying to push through it to see if we can get out of here. Maybe him and I will will just do a afternoon West End Crossing and catch the boats there but we will see how it all plays out. @2nazt if we do not get to cross tomorrow I'm sure him and I will be looking for some fun water to hit late in the afternoon if you got any suggestions.

    Well @Ramblin Wreck got a practice run in the garmin gps said it was 69 mile probably about 60 miles of it offshore whole trip was less then 2 hours. I will get you some footage later but its probably boring as it was pretty good conditions which is a little disappointing and not usual for here. here is a link to my track.

    Fowl Cay is a known snorkeling spot it is actually a Bahamas National Park so there is a mooring ball for the reef. The guy I talked to said it was in the reef there I'm sure we will be there at some point but it is a known enough spot that if the train was there it would probably be well documented.

    I have some pretty solid info about the location of the one on Eleuthera but several locations report two sites in Abaco as well but who knows for sure since I never could get them confirmed I did find one person who said he had snorkeled one of them but he put them at Fowl Cay which is way off from the other info I had heard so I'm not sure I believe that. Yes sorry Sale Cay my chart had me going north of it and I wasn't sure why as it looked like the southern route was shorter and passable

    @Andy S thanks for posting that so your chart does have you running south of Sale Cay?
