Hurricane Matthew projections are not good for Encore

Perhaps I’m being a bit to self-focused in worrying about “just a sailboat” when millions of lives are going to be impacted by Hurricane Matthew? I think it is time for the final preparation … pray for safety for those in the path of this storm (and Encore).

EDIT: A buddy of mine was asking where the most dangerous winds were in the hurricane eye. Answer: When going north like Matthew, that would be the NE quarter — but the other big concern is over the storm surge which happens to be the NW quarter. This is projected to impact much of Florida and I’m not sure I’ve got enough long spring lines spidered to Encore? We could always do more.

    I’ll be thinking of you!

    • Thanks Chip … it doesn’t look very promising. I’m already thinking about options since there will definitely be damage. I’m more concerned at this point for those who are at risk — boats and belongings are no big deal and can be replace … lives cannot.
