Best of luck. Donít know what punt actually means. Iím sure you could figure out how to get outta dodge. The boat could be exposed. Sea state outside the ICW is almost certain to be churned up, even if you donít take a hit. Have you done this run in Sept before?

Re: F is for Florence

With another building right behind Florence. That close pattern always seems to get touchy, with two storms barreling across the Atlantic.

Re: F is for Florence

Invest 92L has me worried because if it does ramp up, it will be right about when I am scheduled to depart.

Re: F is for Florence

It's too early and unpredicted for me to get my underies wadded up yet as to planning. The best I can do is not to put myself somewhere with very limited "go to ground" choices in about 5-7 days till have a better idea.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Re: F is for Florence

NHC is showing a more southerly route for Florence, which was the more concerning. Now a third 20% formation off the coast of Africa, as well as an 80% right behind Florence. I have a bad feeling about this. Hope I'm wrong.

Re: F is for Florence

One of the spaghetti models has her going, apparently, right over my foredeck. I'm going to be splicing up some new dock lines this weekend, just in case.
