NOAA is pretty optimistic when it comes to forecasting weather more than a few days out, so those less than 2' seas always seem to transform into 2 - 4 and then 4 - 6 with a small craft advisory the closer it comes. Sunday's weather, on the other hand, has been pretty consistent since Thursday. So we're hoping nothing changes before the next update during the night.
We've "battened down the hatches" and have prepped for an early departure tomorrow. Unless there's a small craft warming in effect, we'll leave at first light - or as soon as we can get up, anyway! If conditions get too sketchy, we'll turn round and come back. The marina here in Ft Lauderdale is prepped. If we're here at 3pm on a day, we get charged for the night. If we're not, they'll check us out and email me the final amount.
We'll have wi-fi in Bimini, so whatever happens, you'll hear it here first!
