Re: What is it About Storms that Begin With I?

It might be related to the time of year. Storms are given names in alphabetical order as they come from a list of 21 names. That means the 9th storm of the year, every year, will start with an I.

The article mentions the past 3 storms that helped uncover the boat, all happened in the same month, within weeks of each other, for each year. So, I think the coincidence lies more in the time of year, not so much the name of the storm

Yeah, you are probably right just coincidence. But, I was also thinking of the brush we had here in the northeast with Hurricane Irene:
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: ONE YEAR AGO
Perhaps a new sailors weather saying should be:

"Beware the "I's" of August!"

uncovering that ship hulk should remind us not of spookiness but of the changes our planet undergoes and the cycles of history and our constant changing situation here --
never forget the only constant is change.
is an awesome find!

It would be quite ironic if that ship was also sunk by a storm ...

Science Schmience! Our first hurricane experience was Isabella 60 days after buying our sailboat. Then we got whacked by Ivan in Grenada! I'm for outlawing the use of "I" names for hurricanes
