    Re: AnNUAL BIMINI SANDS PWC 100

    Anyone posted pictures of this trip? Any travel logs? How much is the slip fee? Is there anyone that can give some real numbers on what it cost you to make this trip, not including safety gear (GPS, sat phones, radio etc) Is there such thing as Priceline for the hotels over there?For those that went, what would you do differently to save a few bucks?
    Where do you go to check weather forecasts? I couldn't get accuweather nor weather.com to give me info on Bimini.
