Re: Hurricane Hole - How to Choose

What separates a good spot from bad depends on the nature of the storms and geography of your area as well as the needs of your boat.

Here (Nova Scotia) - hurricanes and tropical storms pack their biggest punch blowing from the East / South East. With that in mind it narrows down the choices. Next thing to consider is the storm surge. That little spit of land can become a frothing reef when there is 6 feet more water than usual.

Ideally - I agree with DRferron - and haul out if you can.
