Grenada Hurricane plan

Howdy Folks.

Were slowly making our way down to Grenada for this H-Season. In preparation for that, were working to get our heads around what to do in the event a hurricane or tropical storm is forecast to make it down our way.

I know Grenada is a popular spot for H-season and am looking for what others may have done in the past. Well be living aboard all season but are kicking around thoughts for when and where wed go if a storm was forecast to hit the area. Head south to Trinidad/Tobago...further.

Not looking forward to watching every single storm aim our way and then waiting for them to turn. So figure having a plan in advance is the smart way to go. Always good to learn from others experience on this kind of stuff.

Thanks,
Erin

Re: Grenada Hurricane plan

Go to Trini or arrange to get her in the hurricane frames at Prickly Bay.

Re: Grenada Hurricane plan

Find an anchorage and stay aboard, or buy insurance and leave the boat at the dock and hide out in the mountains.
Here is how one vessel did it
