Re: Hurricane hole!

My previous boat survived two Cat II hurricanes, without damage, in Coral Gables Waterway. However, 'hurricane hole' really is an oxymoron and not applicable once it gets up to Cat III. The biggest problem is the poor preparation of nearby boats. I know of several boats destroyed by other boats dragging because of poor or insufficient anchors and refusal to strip the boat of sails and biminis. My hurricane anchoring rig was three big anchors all off the bow.

However, it depends on the size of your boat as to whether you can get into the best locations. I know that Mark considers New York as a good hurricane hole but I think Chicago is better as I had to ride out hurricane Sandy on the Chesapeake!

Re: Hurricane hole!

There is no such thing.

If there is then every square inch is booked out by commercial operators and long term locals.

They will be packed. And packed means that one boat adrift takes out all others.

So you're best to check the marinas in the area you wish to be and ask for their hurricane rating and plan.

Re: Hurricane hole!

Tampa Bay is pretty out of the way as hurricanes go. Well protected marinas in Ruskin and Apollo Beach but you'll have difficulty if your draft is greater than 4.5. Lots of haul out options in St Pete and along the gulf coast in Pinnellas County.

I'm at MacDill AFB Marina which is extremely well protected. The only thing I worry about here is storm surge. (and neglected dock queens breaking loose). Plenty of space here but requires AFB access and limits LOA to 34' or less.
