Re: Holding power of Mooring Ball required for hurricanes

thanks to all for the great advice.  Your personal experiences are a great help.  I had not considered that the cleat on the foredeck might get ripped out.

So I will not leave the boat in Grenada and consider Trinidad (Peake) or Curacao (Curacao Marine), on the hard with tie downs.  I am aware that they are not fully out of the hurricane zone, but the risk is much lower there.
