HURRICANES & LIGHTNING STRIKES

Several vessels are now heading up the pacific coast from Panama and parts in between towards Mexico. As many are working on their Hurricane strategies and are looking for a safe place.
 

There are of course several options to consider even thought there are many less hurricanes on the Pacific side.

We’ll touch on these in one of the upcoming weekly LINE calls but just as a baseline here is some info. Please take all of this with a grain of salt.  Pacific Hurricane Strategies run the gamut with some general markers for you to ponder.

 

Each maritime zone in the Panama Posse website displays the historic hurricane tracks

ANCHOR REPORT TURKS AND CAICOS

We did a little video post showing how we had a poorly set anchor in bad holding vs what it looked like when we moved a few hundred feet over to find better holding. We thought these illustrated the importance of diving the anchor whenever possible and to just move the boat for peace of mind. 

The anchor in the first shot is in what, according to Stephen Pavkidis guide books, the locals call “slate” hard, crusty, scoured sand that is difficult to get an anchor to set in.

The 2nd shot is after we pulled that anchor up and moved a few hundred feet to the east. That anchor isn’t going anywhere on a 8:1 scope.
