Re: Anyone here based in Puerto Rico?

There's no dry dock no haul out, but Ponce is just a three hour sail if you need to haul out. Water is very active re marine life, lots of manatees, but you need to anchor on the edge of the bay if you have a water maker. Stuff grows on your hull very fast here.

You only ever get one life to live

Hello, my husband and I are looking to leave the boat( cata 420) in dry storage in Puerto del Rey as first time or sail to Grenada as we did last hurricane season
The thing is that we prefer Puerto Rico because our next year's plans but my husband is scare about the hurricane even leaving the boat out of the water so, please, could you give me any advise? Is Puerto Rico and Puerto del Rey safe for the hurricane season?
Thanks in advance

Hurricanes should scare you. They can even hit Grenada. But that's what insurance is for.
