hurricane

I,'m taking our boat to Bermuda next May and plan on staying there with it until Nov. I know Bermuda does get a hurricane once in awhile. I'm trying to find out if anyone knows of any hurricane holes in Bermuda?

I just want to chime in as someone that rode out Gabrielle with his family on the boat... make sure you have a good contigency plan for yourself too. You absolutely cannot imagine the total and utter destruction of a hurricane until you have been through a few. Movies and pictures DO NOT do them justice.

That old adage about there is nothing you can do once the storm hits is NOT true. You can... but it is not worth it.

PS I have noticed at the slightest hint of a possibility for a storm, the good holes get taken. Get there early.

You're also better off if you can get the boat secured away from other boats, who may not take proper precautions and endanger your boat in the process.

It's also far safer to be off your boat, than on your boat if it is hit by a hurricane... but YMMV.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Not the answer you're looking for but a question that you need to find the answer to. Doesn't Bermuda have a rule that if the boats in Bermuda more than 6 months you have to pay the excise tax. ?? I once talked about keeping a boat in Bermuda and that was the reason we didnt do it.
