I'm not sure Point Judith is a great idea. Inside has many shallows and I have to wonder if the deeper anchorages become more crowded, which is very bad in a hurricane!! The refuge is useless.
The CT river is a good idea, but well within the potential for a direct hit. If I were trying to run away, I would crank the iron genny at daybreak and head straight for the Hudson. Its the least likely to get hit, although, no where in the northeast is out of the question.
I'm reasonably cautious, so I've made plans to haulout and we'll see what the next couple of days bring. That said, I do have some suspicion that the NWS dramatizes this to keep the potential for unprepared catastrophic loses to a minimum. FEMA gets a big bill when these hit and the more we are prepared, the better for both of us.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
