Here we go again! Meet Hanna

Her pressure just dropped, and winds have increased to 60mph sustained, 79mph gust. It will likely be a hurricane before today is out (my opinion)

Glad i just bought new anchors. Might take my boat to the safer creek to ride out the rest of the storm season.

Looks like your prediction was right.

Hana is indeed a hurricane. NHC is calling for it to make landfall Friday somewhere around the South Carolina/Georgia border as a strong Cat 1 or weak Cat 2. ... Argh.

My marina happens to be on the northwestern side of the island, and is tucked away in a bight. It's well protected by buildings from winds from 000 degees to 170 degrees. At this point I'm a little reluctant to move it inland, as it might fare better where she is. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hawg...80mph @ 5PM and 4 of the 6 models have it hitting right at the border as a Cat2. Chris Parker believes the NWS has wind speed estimates 10-15 miles low so could be a strong Cat2 or minimal cat3 on Friday.
You are up on Skull Creek right? Pretty protected in there and if Hannah comes in south of you, you will have some additional protection from the worst. I can't think of anywhere reasonably close that will give you better protection. Probably best to stay put with extra lines, good chafe protection and big fenders.

Cam,
Thanks much. High tide is at 1:10 p.m., and I'm concerned that heavy storm surge could send the docks over the pilings. Fortunately it's a neap tide, so maybe I'll luck out. Our house is at the highest point of the island (21 feet above SL). Anyway, I'm nervous. This thing has my attention...

Looks like im moving my boat to the safe spot on Wednesday. My little safe spot is a creek with a nice little island to the south of the creek. Hoping that the island will shelter my boat.

PalmettoSailor will become famous soon enough
Good Luck Guys!

We'll be thinking about you and praying Hanna looses steam and turns out to be a glorified rainstorm.

On the other hand...if it comes in close as a Cat3 I don't want you guys anywhere around...so here's a little scare story.
