Good morning everyone! Just a quick update. Anchor is holding very well. Winds are sustained in the 40s with gust I assume to be 60-80. The peak will be tonight from 4-8:00. Rain has been surprisingly light so far but is expected to pickup now. All crew is in good spirits and very comfortable with our decision to stay on. On another note we just two weeks ago were looking at the Bounty on the hard at Boothbay, ME where she left just after we did. I can't believe that idiot tried to skirt Hatteras in this!!!!! I hope charges are filed if this is at it appears.

If you would like to see our current position we are transmitting an AIS signal which you can view on marinetraffic.com. Enter under the vessel search box "grace" or zoom into Northport, NY.

Looks to be some what protected at least the on the west side on a secluded bay. My prayers are with your family and you.

Daddyo, it looks like you really found a snug place. Are other boats anchored around you?

No boats around us. Unfortunately I am participating in the relaying of communications between the Coast Guard and a 46' raised pilothouse trawler that has broken off his mooring and is up against a seawall just behind me across the bay. He is hard aground and the waves are pounding him. He has stabilizers and fears a hull puncture. The USCG can't/won't pull him off and none of the towing operations can get to him. Very sad situation. I can't risk trying to pull him in thee conditions without seriously risking all souls on our vessel.

Daddyo - Sandy is my fifth time around the dance floor. I've done the best I can for the boat every time and that means--to me--being here to watch for chafe, ease snubbers, check lashings, and let my girl know I love her.

Do you have a wind instrument or are you using nearby reporting for wind speed? Here on the Chesapeake Bay Thomas Point Light is showing 25-30 kts with gusts a bit under 40. I'm not seeing anything like that in the Creek where I am. I'm seeing 15 to 25 (mostly below 20) with the odd gust to 30(ish), measured 65' up.

The difference between 20 and 25 is substantial.

Best of luck to you.

There is an AIS signal for the Princess Chloe. She looks as if she may be against a seawall. Also a signal for the Lunasea across the harbor.

You are probably zoomed out too far. Try typing the boat name into the search bar at the top left corner of the screen.

Just checked, you are in the same spot you where several hours ago, so it looks like ground tackle is holding. So why did you choice that spot and not further in the bay?

Northport yacht and marina are just down from you furth in the bay? Looks to be 45+ ft boats in there. Both look to be private fancy/expensive but in this situation they should let you tie up?

Both of the other two boat are also in the same spot.

Daddyo, It looks like the storm is riding in about dark on a high tide with a full moon. I thought I would pass along one of my favorite hymns.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who bid'st the mighty Ocean deep,
Its own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea.

I'll throw in my poetic expertise...

I Think I prefer Flywright's verse. The other one is too often played as a funeral dirge for mariners lost at sea. Which doesn't really seem appropriate in this circumstance.

If they have the skill set ( I believe they do ) they could very well end up being the FIRST to RESPOND ! proven time and time again. Moving to a "safe location" in a storm like this? Define safe ?

Tough call, its made, get er done.

Can't see the other two any longer. Grace appears to be holding strong.
