Boat Warnings Across the US


Although the hurricane season in the US officially runs through the end of November, it seemed as if we were pretty much done with the buggers. Then Ida came rambling out of the Caribbean Sea and into the Gulf of Mexico. She has weakened to a Category 1 hurricane but is keeping boaters grounded around the entire Gulf Coast. (Follow her using resources from FirstBoat’s hurricane page.)

Meanwhile, boaters in northern California were warned over the weekend to stay ashore due to swells that were expected to reach 20 feet.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a location where you can still boat this time of year, were you forced to stay on dry land due to stormy weather recently?
