Great video...... and don't worry, when they turn 14 they sit in the v-berth on their dad's laptop with the internet card and spend their time on Facebook and MSN... I know this from first hand experience.

But the good part is she still wants to come with us, since she does have the option of staying home with her 17 yr.old brother.

Scott,
Thanks for the view into the crystal ball...

I took the family out on the open Atlantic a couple of weeks ago, whereupon they went down to the V-berth to read with their mother. Seas were only 2-3 feet, but fifteen minutes later, everyone came up looking a little piqued. It took about twenty minutes for them to recover... but recover they did. For me -- and them -- seasickness comes on when I focus on something while below. I can handle some rollicking seas on deck... but I've also become seasick at the dock when the Dafuskie Ferry drives by when I"m working on the engine.

Daughter can handle being below for a while since for the most part we're in protected water, but can get choppy. Funny thing was my wife read a book for 8 hours crossing Georgian Bay and I was the one hanging over the rail losing my stomach with every 7th wave hitting us broadside and dropping the bottom out of the boat.

Hey Hawg...how far up the May River did you go? Is it suitable as a possible hurricane hole? Anything there worthwhile?

Cam,
Man, you're intuition is on point tonight... The May River would make for the best hurricane hole that I've come across, as it narrows past Bluffton (4-5 miles upriver) eliminating fetch. There are also some small bluffs in the area that would offer added protection. The problem is getting all the way up there and back in a single day, and then preparing the house, the wife and kids, etc... Hanna was my first potential hurricane experience, and I have to say I felt helpless. Never again. I'm going to get my act together... next year...

Actually that is what brought up my question. When we were discussing Hannah, I looked at the charts and the topography and thought that the May looked like the best hideout....but a little far for you. When Hannah warnings got toned down, I forgot about it. When I saw you had day sailed there and had eyes on it...the original question came back to mind. Nice to know my instincts had some merit... for once!

A lucky man I am. However, in some ways I think Alex has me beat in that department.
