Maine is important..great place to sail also. Lobsters from cold water are the best. Not just Maine but also NH, Mass, And RI....and oh yes Canada

Oh yeah, Canada - that little bit of land north of Maine...

I can't believe we are sitting here watching a hurricane head for land somewhere between Florida and Maine. Usually when they make it this far North, they have only grazed Hatteras on their way to whack Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Hope it doesn't build into the superstorm that some are prognosticating. Good luck neighbours (that's Canadian for neighbors) and stay safe!

Ive never seen the fishing fleet panic while a storm still sits at its current location. That said alot to me about how bad it could actually be in my area.
Interesting. This morning I noticed a couple of big fishing boats I have never seen before coming into the harbor.

There's land north of Maine Aww..C' mon...I thought is was just ice and snow up there
It seems the latest guesses from the experts make it look like Delaware and New Jersey have volunteered to take it on the chin for us. Good Luck down there !!

Re: Halloween Hurricane

And I always thought Maine was part of Canada with all those sissy little black flies compared to those here in the Adirondacks....eh.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

Looks like I can wait until Sunday to hide Tundra Down in NEH, ME. Tomorrow will be a beautiful day for a sail. Things look nasty through Wednesday. 4 nights on a moored float @ $5.00/night! This storm is going to cost me twenty bucks! Lucky me! I will take the opportunity to change the engine's oil. Here is hoping it ends up being that simple here.

We hauled the Marshall Cat Boat Sunday. It was due anyway. That boat's mooring field is closed after November 1st! Had a beautiful sail before we hauled. Double reefed and a little splashy. What a great sailboat design. Fun!

Good luck to you mid coast sailors.

Down

Re: Halloween Hurricane

The Erie Canal is closing and dropping the water levels down in preparation of the storm. Just got this from their email alert system:

HURRICANE SANDY 10/26 UPDATE

The Erie Canal from Lock E-8 (Scotia) to Lock E-17 (Little Falls) is projected to close at 7:00 AM on Sat, October, 27, 2012. Water levels in this section will begin to be lowered, at that time, to approximately 3-5 feet below minimum navigation levels. Any vessels remaining in this section which are able to navigate at reduced water levels, will be allowed to transit to safe harbor. Additional closures are possible depending on the storm track.

For updates and information monitor 1-800-4CANAL4 and New York State Canals.
