Okay guys, Ive been watching this so called Hurricane closely the last 40 hours and have NOT seen anything that warrants Dorian being called a hurricane. I have utilized my favorite resources the NDBC, windy.com, and the NOAA surface map along with small doses of watching the weather channel. Just looking at the wind speeds and wave heights of the various buoys was enough to solidify my opinion, but I kept rooting around other sources. In my opinion, coupled with my 40 years plus of seagoing experience and having been in 4 hurricanes and the outskirts of many others, I believe the other media outlets have sensationalized and embellished the storm to present a false narrative to increase ratings, instill fear in the masses, promote consumerism for an approaching storm (go out and buy shi#), and to advance the climate change agenda. Also, just analyzing the eye roughly the last 36 hours, it seemed to be around 35-40 miles in diameter and didnt seem to have the typical intregrity that a well organized storm has.
I consider myself a purdeee weather savy mariner having sailed in the North Pacific Ocean, Bearing Sea, 25 plus years of northeast and east coast towing. I welcome and respect ALL feedback from you guys!
