I'm not debating this, but i thought the newspaper said "camaronero", would that not be a shrimper? Anyhow, maybe you were right the first time?

Re: Hurricane Newton Hits Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) Sept 6 2016

I know it's a LONG time out for modeling, but another 2 weeks out is showing a hurricane forming and grazing the peninsula. When I watched the modeling for Newton 2 weeks out via Luckgrib, (love the app for macs!) it showed him forming into a Cat 1 and blazing up the western side of Baja. We all know what happened.

This hurricane season is far from over. I hope to the heavens above that all of us, locals and cruisers alike, don't see another landfall this year. Damn, my stomach is turning just thinking about it. In the end, you can hope all you want, but being prepared is the best medicine.

Nature, please give us a break

Re: Hurricane Newton Hits Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) Sept 6 2016

I'm keeping an eye on the disturbance too. It is currently 100% to form a cyclone within the next 48 hours. I have seen hurricanes double back in the Pacific. I do hope this one heads west and fizzles out. It seems spring and summer came late this year in Ca. Maybe Hurricane season may linger a little later also.

Yes, funny thing about them, they don't have calendars. Southern Hemisphere, we were once caught out on May 15, whereas most people say the season here ends in March.

Thanks for bringing this point up, it may help motivate folks towards further preparation.

Ann

Also, although hurricane path prediction is improving, they really don't go exactly where the pundits say. [This from having tracked one vs. the predictions for it, while at anchor in a hurricane hole.]

Re: Hurricane Newton Hits Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) Sept 6 2016

yup...I'm sleeping with one eye open at the moment(see avatar). When I sailed down in 2013, one had held us up in Ensenada for 5 days. As I remember it had spun to the west, then clocked back around. If I remember correctly, we finally got outta Ensenada, the middle of November. The Ba ha ha got a good whoppin. Another reason I do not follow the masses time table.

I'm eyeing a predicted tropical wave that may form up after the current one we're watching to boot! Jeezus, the Eastern Pacific has been on fire this season.

Re: Hurricane Newton Hits Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) Sept 6 2016

the eastern pacific is behind itself in formations. there are normally 19-21 formed.
this current formation is not an issue, as it is too far into pacific to pose a threat to you in guaymas.
formation is named orlene.
this information is readily available at the website Hurricane storm and weather info for La Paz Cabo San Lucas Baja California Mexico Storm, and Hurricane tracking

shrimping season doesnt open for 2 weeks. if it is a shrimper then they poaching. i was advised they are shark fishers, by a friend who knows many of the fishermen

Re: Hurricane Newton Hits Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) Sept 6 2016

Hi Folks...I'm down here among the mayhem at Marina Guaymas finishing up the last of the projects. So here are the numbers of boats that fell over and received damage. 20 boats at Marina Real and 38 at Marina San Carlos (Seca). I think Marina Guaymas got lucky as I do not see any damage to the boats that have been here. I see a few boats came into this yard with broken masts beside them. Not sure if they were at a marina or anchored out. My boat was listing about 5 degrees due to a few boat stands sinking in the dirt/gravel ground unevenly. One stand is 4"s deep. I think it is best to leave that one as it. The boat has since been leveled out again. I am currently working 10+ hours here in the, sometimes, 100 degree weather trying to get Joli Elle in the water. So I will take some pictures this week and attach them here, Internet willing.

Hey Celestial,
We didnt get a chance to meet up with you when we were in San Carlos this last trip. We were pushing the clock starting at 4 am and finishing around dark each day.

Toppled yachts at Marina Seca SC had all been righted by the time we were there. The rumor we heard was that only 2 boats suffered damage despite toppling. We could not confirm that though. We will be back down for good in November. We hope you will still be around!

Re: Hurricane Newton Hits Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) Sept 6 2016

I'm in the Guaymas yard finishing up (thank god) the last crunch jobs. A number of boats were towed here after being damaged via hurricane. Some lost masts while other cracked hulls. The one that looks like cement in the stern, I think is splash zone epoxy. It's a Moody 44. My friend and I will be hitting San Carlos in 5 days for a flea market. I'll get more scuttle butt then.
