sounds like a big one supposed to become hurricane on monday, were's the weather man when you need him?
I'm all for Chris having his own weather forum, BD could use a top notch weather guy whose zero's in on our playground
On a 14 day . Based on that current forecasted track with storm currently a cat 3 and stationary- doesn't bode well for these guys to make it past mag bay. Best of Luck to the RR3 and hope this thing doesn't put a big damper in their fishing adventure.
the good news is they just left - so they have had ample warning. It might be a different story if they were already down there.
All of the boats have up to the minute weather Intel on board. And getting caught in a severe storm is in my opinion, completely unacceptable. Completely unacceptable ! All I can say is WOW!!! The RR3 would never get caught in a storm, even if they were down there already.
I have fished on the Rooster when we had waves breaking over the wheel house with 30 knot winds and had to turn down swell to be able to eat....so to say the Rooster would NEVER get caught is IMO silly.
You know that 30 knots of wind and running down swell to eat is very different than being caught in the open ocean in a Tropical storm/Hurricane and to think any differently is fricken crazy.
I have been on trips where it got real ugly too. You trust your life to whoever you want to. I will do the same.
Getting caught in a tropical storm or a hurricane is Unacceptable. Period !
i think (not 100 percent sure) if a naval captain got caught in a hurricane they prob ended their career. but then the navy should have better weather forecasts since they have other overhead equipment.
