Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

All of the above plus....

Keep diving mask near companion way. In 60+ kts you cant see sh12 and your eyelids fart.

If you drop your furler, tie two lines to the slider, lead to cap shroud bases and haul it up till taut, otherwise your foil will oscillate and shake the bjz out of your mast.

Put some water inside fenders, about 1/3 full otherwise they will be on deck.

You can actually hear better with foam earplugs in.

Probably too late for all that.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

I haven't been able to get any news from the yard or my contact. Internet was the first thing to go. Yes, looks like Newton jogged a bit north of Guaymas, and received a bit less wind. Still, windyty was showing 45-ish sustained. Hope everyone is ok down there.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

I stand corrected… This is a fresh post from my friends living in Guaymas 15 minutes from Marina Guaymas.

Quote:
Good morning wonderful people!

What an evening, what a night that was. Newton raged as a cat 1 hurricane over Guaymas and San Carlos, 7 kph short of a cat 2 with over 140 kph winds, creating extensive damage and havoc wherever it passed over. At 2 in the morning the winds had finally abated. How fortunate it was that we didn't have such bad rain as we had during Jimena in 2009 because than the picture would have been a LOT worse... I finally fell asleep at around 3 am, and woke up the first time before sunrise when the electricity came back on.

Went down to see if our sweet neighbors were okay, and they're fine. Juan told us that the damage in San Carlos and Guaymas is extensive. Walls came down, roofs caved in, and I can't imagine about the dwellings that the very poor inhabit... So very sad...

Thank you so much for your concern and your messages, it's heart warming and very much appreciated!
Wishing you all a wonderful day / afternoon
Maybe we can get someone else with a first hand account to verify.

I just spoke to manager FONATUR in San Felipe. No damage. Just a little wind last night. He did confirm much damage southern part of Baja. No details. Could not give me information as to how far up peninsula storm hit nor damages. I will continue to try and get information. Have a nice day.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

Two dead, three missing as Hurricane Newton batters northwest Mexico




By Jean Luis Arce | SAN JOSE DEL CABO, MEXICO

(Reuters) - Hurricane Newton barreled across Mexico's Baja California peninsula tourist haven on Tuesday, dumping heavy rain and killing at least two people, officials said.

Three people were missing.

The Category 1 hurricane hit Cabo San Lucas early on Tuesday morning, then headed northwest. By evening, the storm had crossed the tourist resort area and was about to head over the Gulf of California.

It is currently low season, and hotels popular with American tourists are not full.

Two bodies were found on a beach, and it is believed they were part of a five-person crew aboard a fishing vessel that was wrecked by the storm, Jose Luis Rios, the captain of the port of La Paz, told reporters.

He said the three other crew members were missing, adding that the navy was searching for their bodies.

On Tuesday evening, the storm was around 85 miles (137 km) southwest of the port of Guaymas, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

There is some info coming out of forum.sancarlosmexico.com A few pictures of San Carlos and the general area. There is a also a photo of Marina Real. Lots of boats off stands.

Looks like lots of buildings damaged but it seems no one has an injury report except for the poor shrimpers.

There is too much info there to repost here.
We still can't get any info on our own boat.

Sea Dreaming,
Sorry to hear your area got hit so hard. Prayers for all! Earlier spoke to manager FONATUR San Felipe. No damage there. Just a little wind last night. No information as to further south on the peninsula nor how far north from Cabo it hit. Take care. Hector

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

From what little I have gleaned the hardest hit was Guymas with 5-7 boats sunk (one a fishing boat)
Area power is still out. No injury reports yer. Marina Real in SC had a few boat knocked off stands but I have heard little else.
