Where are you? Are you looking for Marina or mooring
anchorage? We are in Great Exuma ( Emerald Cay Marina).
Chris Parker ( wish I could post his emails) has three scenarios and I'm paraphrasing so double check my info.
1) weak system passes south of or brushes
2) comes right over Bahamas as weak but strengthening into cat 1 by Sunday when it reaches south Florida
3) strengthens rapidly beginning Friday night/ Saturday morning into Cat 1. Cat 1 in Central Bahamas Saturday. Then Cat 2 in NW Bahamas Sunday.
Be sure to check surge maps when looking for a place to stay. We stayed at Palm Cay ( (New providence) a few weeks ago, very well protected, good docks, but is open to the south. Can you ask the locals? They are the ones to ask. We got mixed reviews
about where we are ( Emerald Cay gets surge in northern winds) but the locals say it will be a good place for cat1.
