Re: Hurricane holes in the Bahamas

I've cruised the Bahamas a few times. I wouldn't want to be trying to find a good hurricane hole with seven feet of draft. That's a lot. And, they don't get a lot of surge.

On the northern gulf of mexico coast, we usually get a lot of surge the day before a hurricane hits, that usually last until its gone, which allows us to get into and out of places before and after a hurricane that we couldn't get into normally.

You don't have that factor working for you down there.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
