Hurricanes...

Hello everybody, I'm new on the forum and I'm writing from florida. I am on my 33' sloop (6 feet draft) and I'm Italian.
Unfortunately I don't know much about hurricanes, but I have to leave the boat "somewhere" to go back to Italy.
What would be the best arrangement? A marina? A buoy or a yard?
And, what do you suggest as the best place on the Us east coast to leave the boat?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!!

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, hildegard.

There's a number of good yards to store a boat in Florida, including
Indiantown Marina, Indiantown, Florida, Martin County, St. Lucie Waterway, Lake Okeechobee, Hurricane Hideaway, Boating

If you will be leaving a yacht unattended in south Florida dureing hurrican season, it would be wise to store the yacht ashore, firmly anchored. The best place which is reasonably close to Ft. Lauderdale is Indiantown Marina, Indiantown, Florida, Martin County, St. Lucie Waterway, Lake Okeechobee, Hurricane Hideaway, Boating .

FWIW...
