Stay safe Dave. Our friends are taking off the main and jib as well as all of the canvas for us.

We spent the day horseback riding down into the Haleakula crater floor so hopefully payinh hommage to the Hawaiian gods will save us from to terrible a catastrophe.

Funny we go to Maui...first a earthquake...then a hurricane...whats number three?

Dave

TV news shows the projected track moving east again - Good. Boat US's storm track emails show the same more westerly track as yesterday - Bad. NOAA's web site is running slow today as no doubt everyone and their brother on the east coast tries to keep an eye on the evil bitch Irene.

Things still look ok for those of us on the western shore. I'm in a good hole, so I'm not hauling out. All of my dock mates and I are ready to stay up all night to slack lines and tend to the boats. House is prepared.

Kent Island Evacuation

I heard yesterday while traveling back from our boat that residents west of the 50/301 corridor are under mandatory evacuation...

Today on the Hurricane Net 14.325 Mhz expect 5-8 tidal surge above normal tidal water levels..with winds from the east/north east it could be more on the western shore.

Low tide looked like a high high tide at HHS this AM. Not much in the way of ebbing and the tide is now on the way back in. Nothing in the way of wind so far.

I hope to be able to stay for the afternoon high tide and make a final line adjustment before we head home.

The NOAA surge maps are showing almost no chance of surge in the mid and upper bay, and the winds are predicted to be NE, N, NW as the storm passes - doesn't sound like a recipe for much storm surge, right? The NOAA radio only mentions flash flooding, not tidal surge issues in the Baltimore area.

Now I just read something that said that the hurricane is still moving NNE, but the track is shifting W. So confusing. I'm just going to assume the worst and hope for the best. We're stripped of all sails and equipment on our permanent mooring. Now, I just will watch neurotically with my binoculars and LED spotlight (while drinking and eating chips).

Right now its about 2 feet from dock to water and rising. Todays high tide was supposed to be moderate compared to the high for early sun. So I dont feel like we're out of the woods yet.
