Minnewaska According to SailNovice's profile, they have been logged in well since they started this thread and not replied. Let's assume they have learned their lesson that we aren't interested in trolls and hope they become a constructive contributor going forward.

Mimsy I agree with Puddin and another item worthy of consideration. Conditions in and around hurricanes tend to be unpredictable. You also get the fun of being in a huge storm, not a smaller squall that will make things rough for a bit, then settle down. You could be in rough conditions for hours and hours...

We sail year round and look for these conditions in fall, winter & spring. Our S&S 37 loves this kind of weather. See for yourself. Varsity Sailing - YouTube

My understanding is that the OP wanted to go out and sail in Irene since it's only a cat. 1 hurricane... that's only 85mph... I wouldn't think most boats really love that much at all.

"Do not feed the trolls" and its abbreviation "DNFTT" redirect here. For the Wikimedia essay, see "What is a troll?".
The "trollface" sometimes used to indicate trolling.[1]

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4] The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted". While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions outside of an online context. For example, mass media uses troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families."[5][6]"
Eloquent.....

Mimsy Come on guys, its a troll. They can't be serious. If the are that lacking in brain power they are likely not savvy enough to even get to the boat safely, let alone leave a slip.
Seriously.

I hope all of our East Coasters are weathering the storm ok. My thoughts are with you guys. Storm of the century or not, its nerve wracking to be watching sat images of a storm approaching your baby and after all the prep you've done, all you can do is cross your fingers and hope.
