Re: Hurricane holes in the Bahamas

The bahamas is a big place. The Explorer chartkits have some good comments on the better anchorages in each region. Steve Dodge, Pavlidis and others have good comments as well.

In the Abacos, the eastern harbor at Allan's-Pennsicola has been described as a hurricane hole. The eastern harbor at Man-o-War is certainly extremely well protected in all directions (the locals told me they registered 140knts there and only 1-2 boats broke their moorings).
