#332. Andy kicks off the Fall 2021 podcast season talking cruising the Bahamas, with longtime friend and sponsors of the show, Forbes & Jamie Horton. Forbes and 59º North go WAY back, to our early days in Annapolis circa 2006, and he's one of the few brokers in the trade that has skin in the game when it comes to cruising - last year, at the height of COVID, he and his wife and business partner Jamie took their two young kids out of school and cruised the Bahamas on their 35-foot lobster boat. Forbes & Jamie tell the whole story on the podcast, what they like & dislike about motorboating versus sailing (they previously cruised an S&S Tartan 34 to the Eastern Caribbean), and why they're going back to the Bahamas in 2021!
