I'll be heading down from south carolina to florida at the end of the month on my caliber 47.  Then can help bahamas, cuba, haiti, or jaimaca mid october.  I can make 320 gallon of drinking water a day if needed.   Also will have plenty of spare room in my forward cabin if supply delivery is needed.

Hello Nathan, depending on this storm's track, we are likely to be concluding clean up in Florida but The Bahamas will be worse hit. We can definitely connect you with relief supplies. Please contact me when you get closer. We have a snug anchorage in Hollywood.

Hi Nathan,
I am in Washington NC right now. I'm from Charleston. Plan to be heading south soon too. I am sailing a 53ft monohull and could carry a bunch of supplies/people. Was up here to avoid hurricanes and renew passport...which should arrive in Charleston soon. Keep in touch and maybe we could coordinate. Regards, John

Hello John, Nathan,

We are using Hollywood (3 bridges south of Ft. Lauderdale on the ICW) because there is excellent free anchoring and access to shore, and we can stage supplies here. Let me know what you can carry and we can obtain it at this location. Arrnaging to deliver in other locations is another complexity but that can be done.

Thank you for getting involved,

Captain Ray

I have crew with plane tickets to drop off in Miami October 7th. I can go on the outside and be to that Anchorage by the 9th easily. Have a full forward stateroom that I'm happy to fill with aupplies and deliver wherever needs it

Nathan, we look forward to seeing you. We can accommodate crew here in Hollywood if needed, it may cost $20 a day each if donations don't pick up...! I'll make assumptions for the volume of supplies you can carry.
Fair winds,
Captain Ray

Much appreciated. It's just a crew drop off so no crew accommodation necessary. I'll look for into a possible ft. Lauderdale drop off instead of Miami.
Crazy question. I've been checking with a few Marinas in Florida and it seems several aren't providing Diesel yet due to Irma damage. Is there fuel available down near Hollywood or should I fill in the Carolinas?

The Hollywood Marina fuel dock is fully operational now so no problem.

Unfortunately I'm going to have to delay my assistance. I had a anchor snubber shackle snap and shatter my tibea (happened offshore when anchored deployed on its own during bad weather a couple days ago). I'm down in the Lauderdale area with my boat and would like to attend any events. Sorry. ;(

Nathan, very sorry to hear about the injury, I'm glad you made it to our area, keep an eye open we'll definitely have an event in Hollywood.
