Hey, you were in Bimini. Did you go to the Complete Angler and look at all the Hemingway photos. He spent a little time drinking there.

Also, if you are a fan of the Hannibal Lecter character in Silence of the Lambs the final scene when he is on a island on the pay phone is the main strip in Bimini by the Chalks airplane landing spot.

Hope you are enjoying. You should try the Exumas. Very nice walls on the far side.

Ah indeed, I remember this scene from Silence of the Lambs !
As for the Exhumas, unfortunately we are limited in time because it is a sail boat so even with the engine, it takes quite some time to move. Consider 5-6kt. And with a draft of 7ft you have sometimes to make twice the distance to avoid unsecured areas.
