I think it’s a strong possibility it could. Luckily the ramps and facilities we use are all privately owned and not government owned so that does help my fear is that Bahamas will ban entry Or even worse the economy tanks so bad some of us who have signed up to go can no longer go if this keeps up with Restaurants being closed my job could be in serious jeopardy especially with the stock market tanking like it is

I'm with @robert843, by June hopefully we will be on the backside of this but I'm not sure if things will be up and running enough to support the trip. By June I know we all could use a trip to Bimini to help recover from this madness. 🤞🤞

It all depends on the definition of the"backside". It took China 3 months to start relaxing restrictions and that includes riot police bitting people back to their apartments. If we had taken a South Korea approach, I would said the trip is safe. Our approach is worse than Italy, so you can draw conclusions from that.

I hate to be a Debbie downer but now with the latest from the US government, BREAKING: U.S. Coronavirus Lockdown Could Last 10-12 WEEKS, Treasury Secretary Says , the lock down might last 10-12 weeks which puts it mid-June, so the odds of the June trip happening is getting slimmer and slimmer.
We have a hard block in place right now - Miami ordered all marinas closed. So unless that gets relaxed between now and June, we're out of business.

I have a VRBO booked in April for Pensacola... as long as the roads aren't closed I have every intention of still going down with the boat. I can avoid people in there on the beach just as well as I can at home :)

I’m sure we’ve all been thinking it... I’ve just now started to tell my fiancé that Bimini might not happen this year. We were making plans to get married there this summer.
Will she take a rain-check for summer of 2021 ?

That would have been awesome. In 2014 we had an engagement during the potluck lunch at honeymoon harbor, a wedding would have definitely topped that.

Due to the current situation and the cancelation policy on our unit I have canceled @Andy S and my reservation in Bimini. If things change we will rebook but I had to cancel before our cancelation deadline ran out to receive a refund just in case the trip doesn't work out. We will still watch the thread and update if we are back in.
