yall have to be bugging @Andy S. I think he volunteered to take a big group in 2020. His available will determine the crossing date. I think he mentioned something about finding out his schedule on December if I remember correctly

I am currently boatless but if everything works as planned on finding a new boat soon, I might be ready for 3rd-4th quarter 2020. This is on my bucket list. But I am well aware of the gear, preparations and boat specific knowledge needed for this kind of adventure.

I am penciled in for July 13-17.
I would guess that would be latest group for the 2020 season due to storm season starting.

I'd be up for this week as well. Son is getting married July 6th (so can't do anything before).

I may be interested in a mid July trip as well. We're doing Disney in early/mid June so will be back and forth to Florida. We're looking at probably having 4-6 adults.

We were signed up to go in 2018 but backed out last minute due to concern over the weather and Bimini sands. Boat is equipped to go minus a 2nd bilge.

@afsigma21 organized and lead the group of 11 boats crossing this july to Bimini; its huge efforts and responsibilities to lead, but fun and excitement to be a follower in group

Agree, one of the times I pulled it all through. The reverse move gets it 90% of the time!
Can you explain the "reverse move" for those who've never done it? Thanks in advance.
