While this audience is less likely to be impressed than most, Lou Minatti has video of surviving Hurricane Ike aboard a workboat in Galveston Bay. We know some of you working in the Gulf Of Mexico have more impressive video so if you wish to share please upload it to Vimeo or YouTube and send us the link. Otherwise we invite Lou to see a real storm, maybe Winter North Atlantic?
Here’s some video of what might have happened to Lou if they hadn’t been careful.
While I have seen enough storms to know I’d rather not see another, a man who has plenty of heavy weather experience, our favorite maritime photographer Houston Pilot OneEighteen, shares photos of his house. The sign reads: “A waterfront view is not a matter of life or death. It is much more important than that.”
While being thousands of miles from the nearest Coast Guard Station may have it’s dangers, with some guidance (Lee Chesneau‘s new site is a great start) you can navigate to avoid the worst of conditions. We can only imagine the frustration OneEighteen faced in not being able to steer clear of this one!
Many thanks to Fred Fry and the excellent work he’s doing to bring us stories like these every monday!
