If it continues on the projected path.

Are you willing to put your life and the lives of your crew in harms way based on a projection?

Have you ever considered the storm surge from a cat 4 hurricane? They can extend hundreds of miles from the center of a hurricane.

Do you have an Insurance policy that covers named storms during the hurricane season?

Re: Hurrican Dora

Hurricanes and tropical storms almost always head out to the W or NW from the Pacific side of Mexico in June and July. When the jet stream drops south in August, storms start to retrograde back to the NE, and that is when life in the Sea of Cortez and western Mexico gets exciting. For a nice summary of monthly storm activity see:
