Forming flotilla from NYC to south of Cape Hatteras

I'm sitting in Port Washington Long Island, and like many of you watching the storm bear down on the Carolinas.

First, to those in harm's way, wishing you the best.

I think it is fair to assume that the AICW in the Carolinas will be impassable following the storm's landfall given the likelihood of fallen trees across the waterway, bridges damaged and unable to open, floating debris, etc.

We go outside when migrating north or south, except we duck inside the AICW to avoid having to go around Cape Hatteras. Now it looks like a trip through the "graveyard of the Atlantic" will be necessary.

I'd like to use this thread to form a flotilla of similarly situated boats which can move south down the coast employing the "buddy boat" philosophy. Also, captains experienced with going around Hatteras and who would be willing to travel with and advise the flotilla are appreciated.

Post your interest in the flotilla under this thread and once we gauge the level of interest, we'll figure out a communications scheme and logistics to make it happen.

Again, to those at risk, best wishes.

Alan and Ruth

Watching with interest. We plan on leaving NYC first week in Oct bound for Charleston, SC. Also not looking forward to the trip around Hatteras. We had a very comfortable trip around the cape in June when northbound.
