Good luck, man, and stay safe.

Yeah, this keeps us from having boring lives, doesn't it?

Re: here we go again

I'm in St Pete and he is finally leaving. Still gusty but it wasn't as bad as Debby.

Good luck with it. FOr a while we thought we might take a direct of very close to. I registered 30's sustained with gusts in the 40's. If you are near NO, I think you will see a lot more than that. We started feeling it probably 300 miles out, but did not get very windy until last night. I suspect she was 150ish miles from us.

Take a look at the Hurricane Prep thread here in general Sailing. Maybe some of it will help you. SUre hate to see NO in the bullseye again.

Re: here we go again

I'm in Fort Lauderdale, and my dock is 6 miles or so inland. We still registered sustained in the 30s/40s with some gusts above 50.

The worst of the storm was *AFTER* she had cleared Key West. The bands we're getting today are very very powerful. Do *NOT* underestimate Isaac. For some reason, the worst of this storm is not near the center of rotation as you'd expect, but the southeast corner.

These are readings from my boat from y'day...*BEFORE* the worst of it hit us around midnight/1am this morning. (than you OpenCPN + Debugger + Trip recorder plugins)
