Re: What do you about Hurricanes?

New England is the place to be during hurricane season. If you're all that and a bag of chips, it's about a two week sail direct from the Caribbean, or take your time and poke up the coast.

However, we've had a few near misses these past few years. If you have time, you can usually get to a number of good hurricane holes.

Here's an idea. Come to NE during hurricane season to buy your boat, then sail it from here to the Caribbean. I think boats are rumored to be less expensive on the East Coast and you skip the beat to Panama and the high cost of the canal.
