Default time to prepare for Gustav

I live 12 hours away in Missouri...what do the forum veterans think is the earliest/latest i should get to Gulf Breeze before Gustav hits? Do you think that if it slips west a bit we still need to secure boats off of lifts and such? Can you tell I'm a first timer? Love the forum and have learned alot about fishing...any help out there? thanks in advance!!:bowdown

I don't know about that because I have only lived here nine months so this is my first brush with hurricanes. I am sure that somebody on the forum would be willing to go throw some extra lines on for ya if need be. If nobody in Gulf Breeze can help, I would be glad to run over to save you that drive! I am a little concerned too as my airplane is here in Milton and I would like to get it out if we are going to be hammered. Doesn't look too bad for us yet but time will tell. Let me know if you need help. JOE

I think you mean east a bit? It's still to early to tell but I think we are looking good with this storm. If it moves east, who knows....



As mentioned, there are SEVERAL folks on here who would be happy to save you the drive and add a few lines to tie off your boat and do what they can to keep you from driving down.

I'm not too experienced with tying down boats for hurricanes since I don't own one, but if there is another forum member willing to help him, and needs a hand with this, just let me know. I'd be glad to help. :usaflag

Where is your boat? ..... In a lift, a wet slip, dry storage?

thanks for the offer...My boat is a 20' VIP that is on a lift in Gulf Breeze...it is covered and up as high as the lift will go..wondered if i can keep it there or do folks usually take them off and secure on a trailer with tie downs...guess i can wait another day to see what happens with the storm cause i might have to cover my windows too if it comes our way...thanks for your offer of advise!!!

Sir I would sit tight for just a bit, when the storm makes it thru the cut we will have a much better level of confidence in where she's heading...may not be a serious issue for the Pcola area. If it looks like a threat for this area we have some pretty protected yard/pasture land that can accommodate lots of trailered boats. Any forum member that needs a spot to tuck away a boat or RV just let me know.
