Wondering if anyone has current information on the inside passage for Don’t Rock or inside Whale Cay for a shoal draft vessel?

I am trying to figure out the furthest south entrance into sea of abacos that will allow my 5 ft draft to travel north as far as treasure cay. Maybe little harbor cut into little harbor bay? Or should I go all the way to north man o war
We arrived yesterday April 18, 2013 at the Spanish Cay Marina. Spanish Cay had been damaged by huricane Sandy but we’re pleased to say they are now open for business, including the docks, new pool and the restaurant. The owners and staff are wonderful as always.

When we we there in December 2012, checked in at West End and they didn’t even come aboard to inspect my firearms and ammo. Just have them laid put and ready in case. Remember to count your rounds!
The Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club Bridge has decided not to continue with the buoy replacement project in Marsh Harbour. The buoys leading into Marsh Harbour marinas and anchorage area are continually on “walk-about” every year and Hurricane Sandy took out the last one. It is very unlikely that the local government or merchants will replace them.
Check Fuel and Dockage Prices on the EXPLORER CHARTS Home page, Main Menu. Dockage ranges from free (Rum Cay) to very expensive (Atlantis). Fuel prices were mixed this month.
We’ve been to Marsh Harbour, Hopetown, Man-O-War, etc. Looking to experience something different in Abaco. Has anyone been to one or both of these places & can you tell me the pros/cons?
Heading to the Bahamas 1st week in March(2013). Leaving out of Lake Worth. This is a first time crossing, looking for buddy boats. Ron & Sue on S.V.Marilyn
From a cruiser:
A bit on technology:
We signed up for WIMAX in Green Turtle as it was the only option, and it performed for us well there and at Guana, in Marsh Harbor and now in Hopetown. It is a little tricky finding the hotspots, and we’ve had times when the broad-band connection just seems to disappear for awhile.
We did get a Batelco chip in our telephone and have been surprised to experience no reduction in our balance when we have incoming calls….no charge at all???? We still use Global Tel, and there is no charge when we’re making those calls either, though Global Tel is charging us somewhere between 10 and 18 cents a minute for those calls. I talked with someone on the phone who said 18 cents, but the website says 10???? We’re going to maintain this phone by updating it each quarter.
