I agree, the east coast was not that impacted, sure there may be floating debris for awhile but a savvy navigator should find his way with little to no problems. When I was a kid my dad and iI would travel for a month or so to the Bahamas visiting the out islands with nothing more than some hand drawings for charts, this was before Harry Klien and his Yachtsmans Guide to the Bahamas. Some how we survived, yeah we touched bottom a few times by misreading the water and occasionally we waited unil the tide came in before we coukd move but our props were very clean. It was fun to be early explorers.

Hugues: One thing I have to say is that you sure do get the most out of your boating! Stay safe.

I'm very concerned with the additional damage Maria might cause to the islands.

As a matter of information, there are still 54,000 homes and businesses without electricity in South Florida (Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties). I'm sure the Keys and the West Coast are even worse.

Just looked and Collier and Lee County have over 100,000 still without.

Maria may become a CAT 4. She's likely to hit the Leeward Islands, The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico hard. After that, all the models currently show her staying off shore and not hitting the US directly. However, as nothing is normal this year, I still worry they could be wrong.

Following current forecast it should remain as is in St Lucia but should be a bit harder in Martinique, Dominique and Guadeloupe (60knots and up).

Hope this one will not knock to hard on the beautiful Martinique.

Stay safe!

Marathon

I was very lucky. I have no damage to my house. The pool fence was ripped out and I had to pump out the pool and remove a bunch of sand. Landscape issues but all in all very lucky. There is a three story building between me and the ocean so that protected me a lot. There is water and cell service but no power. I just spent the day there cleaning up and returned to my house in Homestead.

The house next door flooded and the house behind me was totaled out. The damage in Marathon is really bad. Boats sunk everywhere. Houses ripped apart. I had no reason to go across the seven mile bridge so I can not speak to the issues in Big Pine and further toward Key West.

I am beginning to feel like I did in Viet Nam....why did I survive when so many around me did not. I also feel sad because I have gotten to old to do much in the way of helping other people.

Best wishes to everyone for a speedy recovery. If there is anything I can do to help just ask.

Billy

Centanario is my favorite rum. We got hooked on it when we had friends living in Nosara CR for 10 years-- we visited them often.

Pura Vida!
