Re: Stuck in a Hudson River Marina heading from Toronto to St Maarten.

I rode out Floyd in 1999 anchored in the Hudson just north of Catskill Creek. During the night all the docks started being flushed out of the creek with boats still tied to them. A lot of boat were lost then, it only blew about 50 but it rained tons. A couple of days later when we resumed going down the river we saw many boats high and dry on the banks of the Hudson. Unfortunately I think it'll be worse this time. I would rather be anchored than in a marina where all hell can break loose.
