I'd like to see the track of their voyage... How they would have managed to sail due east to get "well clear" of one of the most expansive hurricanes in history, and then wind up to the west of the eye off Hatteras 4 days later, is rather curious, to say the least...

Re: Halloween Hurricane

As I was driving out of the boat yard yesterday, I saw some people on their ~40 foot poweryacht working diligently to cover their hard bimini (open sides) with a cheap plastic tarp. The thing looked like it was already shredded from several seasons of use. I thought, "gee, sailors usually REDUCE sail area when expecting a heavy blow."

Down the road at my marina (which I've vacated for the season), there were several boats that still had their biminis up. Owners were nowhere to be found. I'll go back next week to survey the damage. I helped out some people who were working to prep their boats, but I will not touch an unattended boat without the owner's permission.

I googled the last position, looked just under 100 miles off the lighthouse on cape Hatteras, seemingly right in the center path of Sandy.

Here is the map of the location, the green arrow, not the red A marking the Atlantic Ocean

Re: Halloween Hurricane

Re: Halloween Hurricane

Just saw a report on television that the Coast Guard picked up 14 of the bounty crew but several were unaccounted for.

Conditions in a life boat in this storm must have been harrowing. Can't imagine what it would be like for the Coast Guard to try and pick them up.
