Obviously, if we didnít know it already, this picture shows that the Sunshine State can claim no haven as safe from hurricanes as on Cubaís eastern North Coast. It would make sense that some of these Cuban harbors, which happen to be beautiful and unspoiled now, should be developed in the future to provide hurricane season dockage for all sorts of vessels. While these places would never be as secure as, say, Trinidad or Venezuela beneath the hurricane belt, they would be a heck of a lot more secure than the Bahamas, the Southeastern United States, or other sections of Cuba for that matter. They would have the added advantage of being just a short hop from Miami as well.
The Cuban map also shows that the last place on earth you might want to sit out Hurricane season is on the western end of the island. Popular marinas at Havana and Varadero would also be unwise. And that island south of mainland cuba, the Isle of Pines, it might as well have a bullseye painted on it.
By the way, donít those NOAA overlays look like Jackson Pollocks?
