BLUEWATER BAY MARINA COMPLEX

IS UNDER A STORM CONDITION 1:

As of 10 am FRIDAY 27 AUG Tropical STORM IDA is forecasted to strengthen to a Category 3 Hurricane with a landfall into Louisiana. 

We are not currently inside the cone of warning but the projected size, strength, forward movement, proximity to our location and uncertainty of forecast calls for preparation.  There is currently a 10-20% chance of tropical storm winds as early as Saturday evening.

We will monitor the forecast throughout this event.  The storm preparations should be started now for tropical storm conditions.

  •  CHECK  YOUR VESSEL FOR PROPER TIE UP,  AND REFASTEN IF NECESSARY.  THE FORECASTED  WINDS WILL BE FROM THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST THEN CLOCKING TO THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST, SO FACING YOUR BOW INTO THE WIND IF POSSIBLE IS ADVISED.  CONSIDER DOUBLING LINES.  APPLY CHAFING GEAR. 
  • EXPECT DOCK POWER TO BE SHUT DOWN FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME.  REMOVE ITEMS FROM FRIDGE OR FREEZERS.  BATTERIES SHOULD BE CHARGED.
  • ALL PREPARATION SHOULD BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE STORM.   NO MARINA PERSONNEL WILL BE REQUIRED TO HELP DURING THE STORM.
  • CHECK GROUND TACKLE FOR POSSIBLE USE IN SLIP AS WELL AS PREPARING FOR AN EVACUATION.
