Is this even English? Or did you start drinking without me? hahaha
now you started sounding like @swatski LMAO
Etall = et al. you know @robert843 is kind like the spoke person for the group that went to exhuma , abacos etc



Et al. is an abbreviation for et alia (neuter plural). But it can also be an abbreviation for et alii (masculine plural), or et aliae (feminine plural). This phrase means “and others.” ... According to The Cambridge Dictionary, also, extra, and in addition are synonyms with similar meanings to et al.

I don't know if I would say spokesman as much as the last person of the crew still slumming it on a Yamaha Jet Boat lol the rest of the crew has upgraded to Cobalts or boats with 3 or 4 racing outboards on the back and they don't really spend much of time on here anymore. @Gadiel we left West Palm and went to West End refueled and cleared customs. We left West End and went to Spanish Cay and refueled and then continued on to Treasure Cay where we stayed. Treasure Cay was nice it is a protected harbor that they close off with a security fence every night. If have any specific questions let me know and I will do my best to answer them. A lot of info can be found in the below thread or by searching #abaco2017

What route are you planning on taking?
Here are a couple of route tips.

Once you leave West End and head to Abaco you will only be in about 10' to 15' of water for the next 130 miles.

1. When leaving West End, you will want to stay west of Indian Cay Channel markers, this will also take you north for about 3 miles before turning east, the Bahama shelf is very shallow east of these markers.
2. Make sure you have extra fuel (10 gallons should be plenty) for the run from West End to Spanish Cay, @1984Isaac 2015 AR240 and my Cobalt both took 49 gallons of fuel to get there and that was in very calm seas.

After getting fuel in Spanish Cay, just about a mile north of the marina, just off the southern end of the runway, and about 100' off someones dock is a airplane in the water to snorkel. On Google maps you can see the plane in the water, the clear spot just off the dock.
