Cruising Bahamas

I am thinking about a couple of months in the Bahamas next spring. Any advice on a good marine facility to deliver a BCC to by road such that it could be commissioned and launched from.

Hey Stewart,
I shipped Shanti to Cracker Boy in Riviera Beach for her trip to the Virgins, with an eye to transiting the Bahamas.

Cracker Boy Boat Works, Inc. 1124 Ave. C., Riviera Beach, FL. 561-845-0357.

Nice people. One of the few DIY yards left. Great bar/restaurant next door. But for an early breakfast and coffee you need to have a car to get to dunkin Donuts down the boulevard a ways. Of course that may have changed. Marine stores close by etc.

Riviera Beach is just north of West Palm Beach. This gives you an ESE approach to the NW Providence channel.


Just the stuff I need to know, I assume they have a travel lift to splash her and something to put the stick up.


Aloha Gary,

Great to see you alive and well! We will hope to see you in the Bahamas. We are sailing on “Mahalo” now and we will be in the Abacos for Christmas. It would be great to gather BCCs!

Aloha Kate
