Re: NHC-2 high probabilities

Here we sit in Clifton, Union Island, awaiting the eastern most of the two. Our charter guests have a plane booked off the island tomorrow and we must find shelter thereafter.
Fortunately, no forecast yet has indicated winds of hurricane force and the depression or tropical wave (they can't seem to make up their mind) is moving very quickly and is unlikely to produce westerly winds, a real godsend for us, as every anchorage down this way is open to the west.
We're really quite confident that we can sit this out without any problems, IF nobody drags down on us. It's a pretty sad state of affairs that one's biggest worry when contemplating a coming tropical event is that another boat owner cannot properly anchor their vessel.
At this point I think it fair to repeat that which Spike Africa stated all those years ago on the deck of the Schooner Wanderer; "Any idiot can make a boat go, but it takes a sailor to stop one." I sincerely hope there are only sailors in Tyrrel Bay, tomorrow.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
