Marina/Break Down Support

7/23/19 Planning to do the Florida (Fort Pierce) to Abaco (Green Turtle) Crossing in early December. Will be on a planning hull at say 20 knots average speed. This will be my first trip. Will be on a 24' Grady White with a Yamaha 250 hp. Question: what are the sources I can use should I experience a "break down" during the trip; what businesses and what ports? I am a member of BoatUS and currently trying to negotiate Boat Insurance for the trip and 3 month's stay at Man O War but having difficulty. I am thinking my Insurer once identified can hook me up with Providers?

Should I do a "straight through" to Green Turtle (long run for a day) or do the West End thing or some other?

You didn't mention having towing insurance, but I would strongly recommend that you get it.

At 20 knots, Ft Pierce to Green Turtle is very doable in one day.

Might want to ask that in a grady white forum, to get better info on fuel consumption and how weather conditions will affect it. Rougher conditions will consume more fuel. A quick google search brought up this older thread:
