Hurricane Hermine

Well this makes three! Getting ready to drop the hook in Silver Lake, Ocracoke to ride out the storm. She should be nothing compared to Irene and Sandy.

If you have to be stuck somewhere, Ocracoke is a great choice!! How long will you be staying there after the storm?

Be safe!

We were in Myrtle Beach for the storms last year and one of the girls aboard was talking to her mother who was quite concerned. Her mother was asking questions about the flooding and worried about more flooding and Melissa was calmly advising her, "But, mom, we're on a boat. We float."

Maybe you should change your boat name to "Hurricane Magnet".

Other than the fact that Ocracoke is under a mandatory evacuation notice...

Good holding in the harbor there, we've weathered a few storms in there. It's good there doesn't look like any NW winds are in the immediate forecast, which can make the harbor rocky.. easterlies are nice.

Wasn't the evacuation just for tourists?

Mark, were you on your way north or south? You could have come up the Neuse to visit for a spell!

For visitors, and strongly advised for residents. The ferry system is very concerned about storm surge. One of the dangers of anchoring is boats breaking loose from docks around the harbor. And whatever local semi-derelicts are in there.I feel awful for the locals as the economy is extremely dependent on tourism.

Everything has passed here. Calm winds and a few clouds.

So we made the decision that the weekend won't be a total wash out.

We heading down to St Augustine tomorrow morning with a couple of other boats. Will come back Monday afternoon.

It is a pretty neat place to tie up for a couple of days at the Municipal Marina - plenty to do, and mass at the Cathedral Basilica if you want.

The storm did a fair amount of damage to a condo marina here on St Simons today. Several boats were lost and several others severely damaged. It got pretty ugly for a while there.

We are on the hook in San Domingo Creek on the backside of St Michaels with three other boats. Wind from the east just starting. Plenty of swing room with 150' chain out.

Good luck to all of you folks. Dealing with those storms is a learning experience that I'm glad I will never have to deal with.

Still floating this AM....Always a good sign. Ran right over the top of us, but the Wind was out of the North and the river runs East and West. Not much surge to deal with...

I've been looking at the Ocracoke Harbor webcam today and it has looked pretty miserable in there with the strong NW that has been blowing, creating whitecaps. Can't make out any boats at anchor that look like Daddyo (in fact can't see any power boats and just the one little derelict former sailboat in the SW corner that's been there forever. Maybe one docked over by the fish house, it's tough to see the other side of the harbor with the rain. Silver Lake Harbor Live WebCam :: Ocracoke Harbor Inn & Suites, Ocracoke Island, NC

With 3 foot (5! today)Pamlico Sound brick walls forecast through Monday I'd personally stay put until Tuesday, even with a following sea (assuming a southward voyage). Tuesday looks delightful in either direction.

Yes, they indicated it was a homeless man. There was also a death in NC with a truck overturning on a bridge. That's where it gets complicated because people die from things like that at other times as well. I remember reading about the deaths from Andrew and they were listing heart attacks.

Regardless, we're fortunate that it hasn't caused widespread death and injury. What we don't know now is how much it will stir up the NE as it slows down and hangs off the coast and perhaps dies off or perhaps becomes a tropical storm or even hurricane again.
