Recently Paul and I made a change to our cruising programs for the summer time. The freedom is versatile and completely change your plans while cruising is one of the appeals for the cruising lifestyle. “Make a strategy and stay with it” does not always last when cruising. You might be held up by weather or break-downs, buddies may suggest a fantastic location you'dn't considered but that so now you need sail to or you realize you want to save money amount of time in the spot which you are already. Maybe a-work possibility occurs you want to benefit from.
Our initial arrange for come early july was to sail north from the Bahamas to explore more of the east coast of U.S., however for different explanations we made a decision to increase our amount of time in the Bahamas and shop the ship truth be told there for some months while we flew residence to accomplish a work task. When the decision was in fact made, we after that needed to get a hold of someplace to safely keep the vessel into the Bahamas for a couple months during July and August while we were back in Canada.
The Bahamas can be found when you look at the hurricane belt and July and August are smack in the middle of the hurricane period (June to November). We required a really safe method to store the ship that found the criteria for hurricane coverage by our boat insurance, Pantaenius Yacht Insurance which we have insured with for quite some time. We in addition needed to have easy access to an airport since we were traveling house.
We had been in George Town, Great Exuma, when we decided to go out of the boat in the Bahamas. There was an international airport there plus good hurricane holes nearby on Stocking Island where you are able to lease a hurricane mooring from Kevali home Marina or St. Francis Marina. But all of the hurricane moorings had been completely scheduled.
