re: Hurricane Matthew

The way the cold fronts are pushing through here lately, I'm guessin that Mathew will be pushed farther east than predicted, but what the Hell do I know.

re: Hurricane Matthew

The thing I keep reading over and over is that the High in the Atlantic and Low over the States is making the ultimate path of this storm very hard to predict. This storm is still closer to South America than the Florida Keys. I'm no meteorologist, but I've been around long enough to understand it could do almost anything on the East Coast. Hoping for the best. By this weekend, I may need to prepare for the worst.

re: Hurricane Matthew

Just bought my first sailboat this weekend, a very well cared for 1966 Soverel 28. We will be keeping the boat in Southport, NC and the tracks aren't looking great for the area right now!

Headed back down Wednesday to get the boat all prepped and ready for the storm.

re: Hurricane Matthew

I'm already in a fairly sheltered marina, so when the hurricanes hit, I usually just lengthen and double up the lines - that's it!

Believe it or not, there's an entire marina beneath all that brown water.



And there is a swimming pool and bath house to the left that is completely submerged.

re: Hurricane Matthew

This is what worries me - the low pressure centered on NY with high pressure to the east and west. This is next Saturday. Blue is low pressure. It seems to me the door is open. On the other hand, I think the GFS has the speed of Matthew wrong. Its moving slower than this model shows. But if the timing is just right this thing could go right up the Hudson.




Great analysis here -

I hope you bought insurance - at least liability. If not, it may be too late.

re: Hurricane Matthew

Too early to tell what might happen here on the Chesapeake but it's enough of a concern that I'm making contingency plans for the coming weekend to rearrange the schedule (it was supposed to be a non-boating weekend) in case I need to go prep the boat. The updated cone from 11 AM today has it pulling more westerly toward the US east coast than previously. As usual with these things, wait and see and hope for the best for everybody out there.

re: Hurricane Matthew

We've just scheduled our haul-out for Wednesday afternoon. It's too early to tell what Matthew will do in regards to NC and after Isabel and Irene, we're not taking any chances. Hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.

And the ones that path inland will do the delayed flooding that carries on well after the storm and surge. Even a moderate Hurricane will do massive damage and we are already soaked so bad you can't even cut the grass from the last deluge. Passing oceanside and moving fast is our best chance.
