Did you ever get to check out the Bowline Point anchorage I tried to steer you to?
We weathered the last TS (Ernesto) on our 250# mooring off Nyack. Our mushroom brings up mostly mounds of clay each fall when we haul it.
There is no guarantee that Earl will hit the NY area as a Cat 4. It is really too early to tell what will happen. It is not too early to start planning though.
Ernesto gave us about 36 hours of very strong easterly winds which wrecked havoc with the normal tides in LI Sound.
My point is that often storms like these become 'extra tropical' as they plow north away from the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. Then there was the one in 1938...
Keep a weather eye and plan now, yes. There are too many factors to know how this one will play out.
If it hits the Carolinas like Floyd did we may be spared the worst (not wishing this on the Carolinians - just hypothetical like).
Prudence dictates analyzing various plans now.
