How many days can you stay there?
I called them. You must download the PASSPORT app and enter all the info along with the number of days. Staying a week or two is no issues.

FYI...Call SeaTow in West Palm. They have a gated and locked lot just next door where you can keep your truck (or Minivan :p) and trailer for $150 for the week. I just reserved a spot. They only accept cash. There is a boat ramp within walking distance. Google Maps is your friend.

Hi Dean. Are you okay with me posting this info in my spreadsheet ? I use the spreadsheet as a reference for all things related to Abacos. @Berrie , @Andy S and @robert843 were kind enough to provide all the details.

@DIRTYOAR are you also interested in the July trip to Abacos ?

We found a safe place to park our trucks/trailers for a week but it is going to require us to leave from Jupiter instead of West Palm Beach. Launching from Jupiter is only 4 miles longer to West End an we are ok with that
This place is about 15 min drive from the boat ramp
Can you provide an address for future reference?

i know this has alot of ifs and buts..
In your opinion how long do you think it will take to get to West end, then from west end to next stop and then to abaco?
As i said i know it will depend on a lot of stuff we cant control.

I estimate about 8 to 10 hours depending on weather, customs, other stops

LOL! Watching one right now called "lessons learned". Trying not to go too crazy with prep and equipment but better to be well prepared than not.

@Gadiel Are you planning on getting to Treasure Cay in one day? I assume stopping at West End to take care of customs and fuel?

Is your sig up to date? I think you have the same boat as me.

we are still working on the boats and getting everything ready for the trip. I believed @Amar Nanduri and I will stop at Spanish Cay for the first night then continue onto Treasure Cay. Hopefully, we can meet up and have a drink before departure.

Hi, looking forward to meeting you all. I think there are tentative plans to grab dinner the night before?
