    Any body in for a weekend Club Sea Ray trip to Bimini this summer? Would be nice to get all the South East members together and enjoy the great island.

    I am good in July, I will probably go once a month all summer. As far as staying we like resorts world Fishermans Village marina. Stayed there twice last year and loved it. Staff and facility was outstanding.
    So what is the "new boat"?

    What is the typical cruise speed of the flotilla?

    Stumbled into a 25' amberjack to keep me busy while we look for the next cruiser - I just missed a great deal on a Princess in Ft Lauderdale LOL - Im getting some projects done on the AJ now will ship down when finished and sea trialed in the spring/early summer. A little small, so may get a room at the Hilton this time - Fishermans village sounds great - cant wait to be back on Luna Beach!

    I need to rebuild a velvet drive, but that sounds like a heck of a break in.

    I am thinking May or June when the weather lays down and we can get a smooth ride over. For now we keep this thread going and get a list together so we can set an actual date to shoot for. I think it would be fun to go over on a Thursday or Friday morning and come back on Sunday. Gives us time for some Sapona, Luna Beach, and Honeymoon Harbor fun. Nightly dockside cookouts and cocktails. Families welcome and it makes for more fun.... I will bring at least 2 or 3 boats from my marina with me.

    I grew up in Miami and my dad would take us to Bimini w a flotilla on our 17ft Mako. Sitting w my younger brother on that seat in front of the center console made the swells look like rolling hills. I’d take us about 2-2.5 hours to cross.

    Now on my old age I want a midsized cruiser/ Cuddy for local sandbars, islands on the Indian River, trailering to the Keys and Bimini trips.

    Ive got my eye on a couple classic 24’s one of which has twin 4/cylinders mercruiser but most 24-25’s have single 260hp mercruiser power.

    Hope to join a flotilla this summer July is the best month btw.

    My current lil gal doesn’t have the range

    I’m headed to check out a classic 240 Weekender. Hopefully this one will pass survey and I can join the group.

    I still recommend July boyz. Lot calmer winds and seas.
