I've been following the development of Matthew lately and since the forecast
still seems to be "the entire US East coast" I'm thinking I need to get a solid plan in place. I'm a cruiser in a 46' LOA
, 24' beam, 4' draft
, 68' air draft catamaran
. Currently at Newport
Marina, which is *still* wrecked from Hurricane
Sandy - doesn't inspire confidence.
What are some options in the area? Are there any boat yards capable of hauling us out that are also secure enough for a potential hurricane
What about the idea of running up the Hudson
as far as we can go and finding a sheltered marina there - it looks like we can make it all the way up to Albany. Anyone have personal experience with marinas
/ quality of dock
construction up there?
Or does it make more sense to find somewhere in the sound? I'm not from the area, so hoping to get some "local knowledge".
