Hurricane Irma

Irma turning cat 3, well organized and coming on Caribbean.
I plan sunday to going South, Hope Irma making more North and not going to hit us.
Any other people from Trawler Forum in Caribbean and what are you doing?

We're leaving San Juan on the 16th on a Southern Caribbean cruise, that's what we're doing!

A bunch of spaghetti models show it heading for the east coast. Got to keep an eye out for this one.

Looking worse now, cat 3 or so wroth significant impact to the islands. Florida/east coast could get it. I can't believe there's another one barreling down on us already!

Monday morning has the highest probabilities from Florida to N Carolina..

So in 2 days it has shifted slightly westward, but some forecasters expected that.

Still too early to tell according to them, my moneywould be on the SEUS landfall as so far Irma has been pretty close to forecast.

I would pay for a sharp turn northeast, but not likely gonna happen....

Glad I'm not in/near the Bahamas now! I was looking at my Windy app and saw this for Saturday.

45' waves?

Every prediction I see is different. All we know for sure is, it may hit the US east coast somewhere. Or it may not.

Sadly it's forecast to go within 20 miles of my boat currently hauled in Virgin Gorda. Does not look good, I am due to flydown and prep the boat for the season on the 30th, at the moment it looks like i'll be picking up pieces.

Oh man I hope that doesn't happen. Best of luck to you-- stay safe most importantly.

Oh Boy....this one definitely looks like it is poised to kick some serious TF Member butt, me included. That dang gone high pressure keeps pinching the trajectory West. If it gets to Cuba before the turn, not good.

Crap. And we are right about the most active part of the year with a couple more disturbances besides Irma.

If anyone wants to tack it Stormcarib has some of the best graphics and plots.

How close can it get? - Closest Point of Approach - Caribbean Hurricane Network

Ours is in an unprotected marina in Georgetown, SC. We were planning on moving it north to Southport next month but we might have to do it sooner rather than later.

I would be making reservations for somewhere behind Myrtle Beach like Osprey, Barefoot, or Grand Dunes marinas till Irma is gone.

I have just spent the last hour and a half calling every marina between Georgetown and willmington and every single one is not only booked, they have huge waiting lists.

I honestly don't know what to do. Our marina will evacuate if the hurricane is going to hit. But I don't have a place to go.

Try the marinas up the Cape Fear, if booked, how about New River?

Never been up thete but every mile away from the coast helps, as long as the river isn't prone to severe flooding.

Grande Dunes is full? That's a first.
