Marsh Harbor Marina & Jibroom Restaurant

I have returned to the Bahamas from Ohio and visiting with my mom, she is now stable and not in pain and in a nursing home being taken care of. Family is close by to her and we will be in contact with them while we continue our cruises. We are docked at Marsh Harbor Marina and will use this as a base while we spend the rest of the winter in the Abacos just doing short one or two day trips to the neighboring Cays and returning back here. The staff here has been great to us and constantly checked up on our boat and Chris while I was away. The marina is a small  68 slip family run business and they feel like family to us, we couldn't of picked a better marina to stay at. Marsh Harbor is a great place to base yourself while sailing the Abacos, there are numerous different Cay's all within a day sail from here and all of the provisions, fuel and transportation is nearby. The airport with daily flights back to the US is a short cab ride from the Marina so that anyone can fly in or out whenever they feel like. The weather has been perfect so far this winter with only one cool spell for a day or two. Chris has not had to wear a fleece jacket at all and we sleep with the hatches open every night. So maybe we will visit the far Bahamas next winter.

Good day Mike,

Got your link from Mike and Rebecca's blog.

Can I get info from you on your wind charger? You like it? What output and model?

Our boat is a 78, 30' Hunter and we're going to be right behind you. On Lake Ontario this year, soon much further south.

Many thanks,

Jim and Judy
