Often it's better to be out of the path than on the hard near the coastal landfall.

For a Cat 1 and most Cat II's, usually 15-20 miles inland, up some river is pretty good. As long as there is enough terrain and trees around to minimize wind and any waves and if you can find a place to tie up or anchor that still allows for ten feet of surge or so.

Very true - many people think because they are on the hard that all is good
