Getting a little gusty 25+knts now and then but, nothing that a 33 lb Bruce and 100 feet of chain can't handle at least in my location. Still waiting for the shift to the North though.

I guess you guys really are getting it worse up there. I don't even think I've seen 10 knots. In fact, I'd welcome some more wind right now if it will make these damn giant bees fly away.

Err...Earl, if you're listening, I was just joking. They're gone! They're all gone...I think. Guess they finally figured out it wasn't a wood boat?

Were on-board too, but I doubt Maine is going to get hit with 50-70 mph, more like 30-50 at the most. All battened down in my little hurricane hole and ready for a fun night. Only other boat here is a large mega sailing yacht which is perhaps 90-110 feet LOA & flying the Brit flag and laying to their anchor.

Fog rolled in about two hours ago and wind clocked from SE to NE and is slowly building from dead calm about an hour ago..

Outer rain bands coming through area right now. Nasty stuff. Strongest gusts and heavist rain so far. Watch for this up north. Took the opportunity to clean the cockpit and use the free rinse water. Should be winding down in a few hours here on Long Island as Earl heads north and east. No one dragged around me and I only had to use primary anchor. Good luck up there.

It ended up being a non-event in Benjamin River. I don't think I even saw 20 kts at deck level. A more exposed weather station out on Naskeag Point only recorded gusts up to 30. Lots of rain, though.

Trunk Island Harrington Sound until we head south in a couple of weeks. Fiona and Earl seemed to be non events everywhere.

Our boat is moored in Nantucket - we stripped the sails and canvas, and spent the night on shore. No damage to any boats we know of here, but winds reportedly maxed out at 65 knots. We feel lucky.

I'm getting blown way worse by this cold front, than anything Earl threw at me. In fact, is I knew it was going to be such much nothing, I would tied to a dock yesterday to try to get some shore based chores done.
