If you ask me, it doesn’t matter what the predictions are. As a lifelong coastal boater, hurricanes –and for that matter, Nor’ easters, or any big wind—is always accounted for and dealt with as part of basic boat ownership. The plan for doubling the lines, hauling out, or finding a hurricane hole, is perpetually in place. The exact action an individual boater chooses to take will vary with circumstance, so I wont preach for a specific plan. But I am making a call that you resolve to act.
