Re: Sat phones

I used the In Reach on two trips this summer and it worked flawlessly. I paired it to my IPhone and was able to use the phone to text off the satellite. Also the tracking where it sends a text with your position every 10 minutes is terrific. I made a Bahamas crossing alone and had someone track wher...

Re: Bimini trip

If they are not there you check in at the airport a few minutes away. You will be directed once you dock at Bimini Sands. The US decal is for boats 30' or larger. You ...
