Just noticed you are in a Sea Ray. Why not go right to Lucaya there are a number of marina options in several other channels in that area. You can then move further east and go through the Grand Lucayan Canal and get to the sea of Abaco that way.
If you want to avoid Marina fees altogether, check in at West End then go down the south coast just a few miles to the excellent anchorage in an undeveloped canal system, then head to the Grand Lucayan Canal the next day.
It's taken me 69yrs to get it right. I ain't changin' now !
