Well I'm sitting in Orlando awaiting Matthew. Curfew been on since last night. Centre seems to be 25 miles of coast. St moment higher winds and constant rain. Officials saying warning with continue till Sst morning I think to enable them to assess the damage. Beers are in so comfy seat and wait it out.

Your concern is rather singular !! I'm here with five members of my family and thankfully we're all safe and sound unlike many people who have suffered at the hands of this hurricane. 👍

Sorry jambo, I thought you would be ok in your soft seat & with your supply of beer, as they say all Orlando attractions will be open the next day !


It was only Singular in that im replying to Islandflyer's thread he started.
I hope for all out there, & for those that are suffering, hopefully most are suffering material things & not human injuries & losses !. (although sadly we already know already Haiti has suffered many human loss)
I don't think anyone will be selfish in this tradgy & be thinking singularly,

Sorry Jambo, that my wording of my post made it seem this way to you & of courses we hope your all safe !

Fred it was probably a bit of stir crazy having been in the room under curfew for a day and a half. Yes I had a soft seat but unfortunately no beer as all the outlets near us were sold out and charging $49 for a 4 bottle of red!! I agree with all your points especially for the people of Haiti. We certainly dodged a big bullet when it did not make landfall. In a way I'll be glad to get back to 'the known ' expectations and conditions. Cheers for now. Heading to Clearwater for some boating tomorrow.

We made it through relatively unscathed. Lots of damage to yards, flooding on the south side of Nassau with major damage to homes, but no loss of life as a result of the hurricane in the Bahamas. Power is being restored across the island as well as other services.

Andros and Freeport got hit pretty hard, with Bimini sustaining major damage as well.

Both boats are fine - one is trapped in the canal because the security gate collapsed, the other is on the hard until Wednesday.

Here's a timelapse video of the Parker RIB riding out the storm:
