|Heading out of Alice Town, Bimini|
Stayed at the dock the first night at Blue Water Marina
|Some of the lobster we enjoyed at Gun Cay|
By midnight, we were awakened by our boat rolling side to side and our gear crashing around the boat. Even stuff that had been stowed was flying out of their spots and rolling around on the floor. By 4am we couldn’t take it any longer and we moved the boat closer in, trying to escape the rolling that ensued. We slept for another 3 hours, but the tragedy of it all was the morning to follow, when I found our i-Pad laying on the ground, the screen smashed to smithereens. This was our main source of navigation and a $900 purchase! Ugh.
|Leaving Gun Cay to cross the Banks to the Berry Islands|
Lesson learned, non-skid does not keep stuff from falling off tables, do not trust it, especially in rolling situations. Stowing your valuables is VERY IMPORTANT, even if it is not rolling out. Note, going from a 10” I-pad touch screen to a small cursor screen, is a cruel reminder of what happens when you don’t properly stow away your gear or keep insurance on it.
