Re: Storm on the Way to Mexico - Anyone Know More ?

As long as you have Internet service, watch the National Weather Hurricane site at National Hurricane Center. The information is there and is updated routinely. There are many other weather sites available, you should make use of all that you can and make your own informed decision. Good luck and good sailing.

Re: Storm on the Way to Mexico - Anyone Know More ?

i would not recommend sailing in these--jova is to be a h3, and has seas in excess of 25 ft at present and irwin is following on jovas heels with a third to play with the southern mexican coast. i would give it about 2 weeks then go sailing. the path seems to be creeping north and more westward after hitting puerto vallarta than it was---at least is weakening after the smashing into la barra de navidad.......party being organized in marina mazatlan...

Re: Storm on the Way to Mexico - Anyone Know More ?

jova is going west then north -- we get her only as a ts, whew, but manzanillo is gonna be hurting with a h4 landing on them. she is pushing 29 ft seas at present and expected to land within a day or so. then she turns north. we expect her thurs or weds as a ts with 50 or so knot winds. her seas will be pushing against tthe southerly drift and current so should be a fun time if caught out in it. then not long after she kills off mexican riviera, irwin makes a lot more rainfall in the already damaged areas,,, hopefullly not hitting land. the thurs punch is having a difficult time making up mind as to what it wants to do ---at least jova and irwin will drop sea temps for us---pacific ocean is over 90 degrees F....perfect for bad storms/

Mainlanders, Extra Fenders and dock lines, please. I don't like that some models have it over my La Paz about the time I get there. Tho' I'm on the hard and probably not in danger.

Being on the hard is no guarantee of safety from a hurricane! Hurricane Ivan struck Granada and 200 boats at Spice Island Boat Yard were toppled from their stands.

Re: Storm on the Way to Mexico - Anyone Know More ?

new path shows jova coming into barra de navidad and making her way up the coast becoming atropical storm--is a more northward path as she is looking to hit barra de navidad then thru puerto vallarta, then san blas then inland of mazatlan..interesting path .....

irwin is already a td only, and still at sea

That's a sad sight, John A. I was told, uh huh, that had never happened at the Atalanta yard. I know the last big one that hit San Carlos toppled one boat, from the stands being washed out in the flash flooding. We shall see. I did not like it that there was a catamaran next to me, tied down, but wind under it's wings could possibly rear it up and ram my Rose.

Hi Zee, I agree with you. Looking today it didn't appear that Jova was going to be a threat. But, you know how they can rebuild over warm water and the Sea is a bathtub now. You take good care of S. Bird, ya hear me there?
