Re: Hurricane Irene

The photo of Rock Hall, MD is courtesy of Hayden Cochran, an illustrious Island Packet owner and developer of the website IPPHOTOS>COM. I am not sure of the water height at the time of the photo but they say it reached about 6-8 feet above normal tide range. Check out other photos at www.ipphotos.com
At any rate, the storm surge up the Chesapeake is the condition that will do the most damage from Irene, in my opinion.

Re: Hurricane Irene

Anchoring out in Broad Creek, oriental, NC and then dinghy to shore. MJWarner, if you see BlueAyes float by, God forbid, take a compass reading.

Go east, Irene, go east.

Re: Hurricane Irene

The U.S. Navy has ordered the Second Fleet to prepare to put to sea, moving ships out of the way of Hurricane Irene, beginning early today (Thurs. Aug. 25).

Re: Hurricane Irene

The track has moved west in the last 24 hours putting the Eastern half of Long Island, NY, and most of New England on the wrong side of the eye. High tide is early evening in Southern New England which looks to be about when the storm comes ashore so the surge could be a big deal.

I'm stripping canvas and sails today. Hope to get the boat hauled in the next couple of days. Our mooring is downwind of about a hundred boats. If any break loose, it won't be pretty.

Re: Hurricane Irene

I'm contemplating either anchoring in lake Montauk, or remaining in Shelter Island area.
Do the marinas generally evict yachts/fishing boats during hurricanes?
I would think I could find some decent swinging room if the mega-yachts and fishing boats remain at the docks...

Re: Hurricane Irene

Left my marina last night for a hurricane hole. I pray this is the right decision. The spot looks great with plenty of trees to spider in and set three anchors as well. Many folks are staying at the marina on a floating dock. If the storm surge is above 8 feet the dock will float off.

Re: Hurricane Irene

I was there when Bob came ashore east of Narraganset. The water went over the parking lot at east passage yachting center plus 2 feet . I think the eye of that one went right over or damn near. so it didnt push as much as if it had hit to the west. Im guessing that was 8 feet. I remember watching the water rise like filling a tub its pretty quick

Re: Hurricane Irene

Annapolis: Jabins, Port Annapolis, and Eastport Yacht Center are full up and not taking anymore reservations. Herrington Harbour North is running a waiting list and running 24 hours / day and will get as many boats as they can before the weather stops them.

Some of us started prep yesterday and the pace is definitely picking up. Got a few "don't cares" but mostly people are getting ready.

Two of the smaller marinas on Back Creek have told slipholders to get their boats out by Saturday am.

Re: Hurricane Irene

There is some good information on the IMIS Insurance site put together by one of the insurance companies on preparing for storms, http://www.imis.pro/hurricaneinformation.pdf . I have also posted the 11 AM model runs on our navigational updates site and the trending is more to the west than yesterday. The Chesapeake is looking much more vulnerable now. Chuck
