HURRICANE IRMA: Latest Track Forecast Models

As you may imagine, we're paying close attention to Hurricane Irma and we've spent the better part of a week getting the SYS Fleet ready to weather this record-breaking storm.

While it's still too early to tell, with any certainty, which direction Irma will follow, we do know, no matter what, its impact will be felt to some extent or another throughout South Florida.


If we're "lucky", some weakening may occur in the upcoming day or two but that's no reason to get complacent. For our part, we've implemented our standard Hurricane Preparedness Plan to protect the vessels in our care. Precautionary measures include, but are not limited to:

  • Repositioning to sheltered harbor, if possible
  • Doubling up lines
  • Putting out extra fenders
  • Lowering antennae
  • Removing exterior canvas & cushions
  • Securing tenders & toys
  • Springing off from docks were necessary
  • Making sure bilge pumps are operational 
  • Removing all perishables from refrigerators & freezers

As always, we're bracing for the worst but hoping for the best. We hope you're not waiting until the last minute to prepare. Stay safe, mates!

For smooth sailing and zero stress ... call SYS!
