My geography of the USA isnt real good. But we were just missed, about 1 month ago, by a Catagory 5 Cyclone. Now if I was where you are when it get announced I would be motoring up about as far as the Grand Canyon.
If you still have 20 foot depth
then you havent gone far enough.
Keep going till there is a mountain range, or other physical feature that will stop, or deviate the hurricane
. Or the narrowness of the mangrove creeks makes it safe.
Remember also, all the locals will be rushing to their favorute spot so you need to have a number of good locations on your list. 1 boat anchored where 20 trawlers can go will be a 2 hit fight... they hit town and you'll hit the road.
All the best.
