Camaraderie - thanks for the info on the prices! At the moment I'm still in suspense about whether or not I can even move the boat and I'll have to play things by ear once I get the new rudder delivered, installed and functional. I've been looking at one spot here on Virgin Gorda that is dug into the ground and I'd be not only entrenched but have heavy and well-secured boats to my left and right to protect me from flying debris and the brunt of the storm.

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.

I've been watching the weather paterns for decades and it looks like everything is setting up right for an active 'cane season. I was saying this before the new numbers came out today. Usually by May you have a good idea where the Bermuda high has set up and can make a good estimate on who is most at risk. SAL was there for the record year in '05 so Im not counting on that to be much of a factor. I really dont mind the hurricane threat and being in the market for a boat I know I can find a good deal in the heart of hurricane season, especially if a storm is brewing.

I am moving aboard my boat this year and going to cruise the Caribbean. I hate to sail when it's cold. So I hope the forecast is off like last year, for my trip down the ICW.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that when the US has a Republican President there are far more hurricanes, floods and other "Acts of God" ????

"They" predicted a bunch of storms last year, remember last year? What were there, 5 or 6? Not nearly as many as they had said, regardless. And then the so-called global warming was offset by a spacial speed-bump or some other damned thing. So, who's the wise guy causing the global warming on Mars?

That's just God's way of showing his displeasure of the fundamentalist Christian Right...

Yeah I remember that.

And a comment on the cycles - right, the earth is HUUUUUGE and cycles happen all the time, though there are weather reports dating back to the 1700's for populated parts of the world that altually recorded all that data - Europe, US, and caribbean islands.
