To enter the Bahamas and Caicos you need a negative Covid test result within 5 days of entry. 5 days won't be enough for taking the test n getting your results prior to sailing there from Florida's east coast. Any thoughts?

Having done the PCR test a few times, it takes 2 - 3 days max to get the results. Even if you left immediately after taking the test, you should have the result before arrival.

It's only about 42 miles from Ft. Lauderdale to Bimini, i.e less than a day crossing which should give you time.
