Hurricane Joaquin

Rhodes Reliant Yawl – just rode out a CAT 4 Hurricane in George Town, Grand Exumas, Bahamas. Hurricane Joaquin was 55 NM away. Photo taken Oct 3, 2015.

Siskiwit rode out the “Storm of the Century” in the Exumas in March 1992.  Siskiwit rode out Hurricane Isabel CAT 2 at Atlantic Yacht Basin, Chesapeake, VA Sept 8 – 2003. She was well  protected from the surge from the Chesapeake by lock at Chesapeake,  but not from the surge when Isabel came ashore in NC. Siskiwit also rode out Hurricanes Charlie and Francis in 2004 while moored at Loggerhead Marina, Palm Beach Gardens, FL.  She took no damage during any of these storms.
