Sentiment is appreciated Captain Gary, but once she's safely moored I won't be anywhere near the water, I'll be back home putting up shutters!

If you are on a mooring ball, that is not usually recommended since you will most likely foul their gear.

Nelson,

Don't want to pi$$ in your cornflakes, but do you have any info on the type/age/rating of the mooring gear at Pennekamp? Just playing Devil's Advocate here, as I have no info myself.

Sounds like you're already in and done, but there is a damn fine hurricane hole at Tavernier, on the creek, on the Fla Bay side, mangroves and all just like Eisberg suggests

I'm in Oyster Pond on the east side of Sint Maarten. Wind has not increased yet but sea are up. A few bands of showers so far. The storm will pass south of us in the next 12 hours + as a tropical storm.

(I'm in Oyster Pond on the east side of Sint Maarten. Wind has not increased yet but sea are up. A few bands of showers so far. The storm will pass south of us in the next 12 hours + as a tropical storm.) Thanks for the information it would be really great to get accurate information like yours as a storm finds its way north or northwest I'm tired of watching eight hour old forecasts from the normal weatherman............ it would be good information as the storm finds its way, winds, tidal flooding local area as well as Seas could be very helpful to some...Captg

CHN, Caribbean Hurricane Network, has up to the minute information from almost every island through on the scene correspondents, who post to the site themselves. I have found it interesting in the past as it is near real time information as well as the typical weather found elsewhere. They even cover the Keys

Re: Hurricane is a comin, now what???

A couple of miles before the jew fish creek bridge on the 18 mile stretch there is a canal on the left with a bunch of 25 footish sail boats, keep and eye out for it and pull in and inquire on your way to the boat. Gilberts may have a slip and or Manatee bay marina and boat yard may have a space for you. I'm considering getting off of this tug boat early to go home and deal with my boats as well. but it looks now as if it may only be a storm when it passes here. Fingers crossed.

Your current dockage agreement may be unenforceable. Check the state laws.

That is a really interesting point and one I have wondered about many times. Forcing one to leave could in fact be forcing them into harms way which could expose the boat owner to loosing his vessel an or his or her life. How much advanced notice should one expect from a marina in order to safely move to another location. Sailboats are slow, and storms change direction and intensity continually at the last moment. Forcing one out into the unknown could be a recipe for disaster and may bring liability questions into the mix.
