Hurricane Matthew

We are finalizing preparations for Hurricane Matthew. This is the first major hurricane to hit Nassau since 1929. Our house is boarded up and ready but we have to leave being in the storm surge area. Empress is on the hard and Huntress will be secured in a canal, still in a storm surge area unfortunately.

Calling for a category 3 with 10-15' surge.

We're about as prepped as we can be.

Let's hope for the best - see y'all on the other side.

Huntress is in the canal now, but we will move her to the middle to ride it out. All insurance up to date too...

Good luck. I'm watching this closely myself- I have family in the way of it as it goes up the Florida coast.

I might be too over careful, but if you put your boats like that on the side and one of them moves over to the other side, you'll have a lot of damage. Wouldn't you be better of placing them upright?

Might be too late by now.
