Latest hurricane track is for Irene to hit the junction of N and S Carolina on Saturday.
We’re currently near Charleston S.C. We’re heading for Myrtle Beach, S.C., should reach there on Wednesday.
Why Myrtle Beach (exactly where the current track is headed)? We spent the day (while traveling) calling various marinas on the way. None of them would allow us to dock there during a hurricane. (Fear of us damaging their docks). We finally found a marina in Myrtle Beach. Interestingly it is quite cheap and gets excellent reviews in the cruising websites. We’re looking forward to arriving.
We’ll tie up Latitude Adjustment as best we can, maybe rent a car and drive as far inland as we can.
If we get a direct hit at a Category II or III I don’t think there’s much chance the boat will survive. That would put an early end to our trip.
