Making things more interesting
The windy season being what it is, it’s typical that we keep a sharp eye on the forecasts, both short and long term. With ZTC safely tucked away at Grenada Marine, and the storm’s northerly path, we had little to concern ourselves with when Chantal blew through. Now, only days away from our return to the Virgin Islands, and the closing of the new boat deal, Tropical Storm Dorian shows up on scene to make the situation more interesting, as if we needed that.
As challenging as it is to prepare for a storm on a boat that you know intimately, in a location that you know intimately, it would seem to me that it would be considerably more difficult on a brand-new-to-you vessel. Of course, if it were needed, we would make it happen. That’s what we always do. In this situation fortunately, the storm is presently projected to travel a bit north of the Virgins, and pass by there before we actually take possession. That’s great news, as far as we’re concerned, if it holds true!
