At random: Nautilus has long been a popular name for a submarine. Some of the more famous of these are Robert Fulton's NAUTILUS (1800), Jules Verne's fictional Nautilus, and the NAUTILUS of Sir Hubert Wilkins in which he attempted a voyage to the North Pole under the ice (1931). There have also been three U.S. submarines of that name, including the world's first nuclear powered submarine built by the Electric Boat Division.

To all my friends and shipmates in the path of IRMA, I pray that you will evacuate and find a safe place to weather out the storm.  In spite of my joke about the Hooters gals, I can still put 2 couples up here in Houston.  You will be in my thoughts and prayer though out the next week. 
When and if you can, please post or call some on this BBS to let us know how you are doing.

I wonder how Joe Most and family are doing. Don't want to call yet. I hope Joe is on high(er) ground being in Fort Pierce/Port St. Lucie, on the Atlantic coast, but there ARE barrier islands between him and the ocean itself.

I hope all of you in the path of this monster storm have retreated to a safer location, Fl. Ala. Ga, etc.
Be safe

Port St Lucie is experiencing a much reduced hurricane. The storm's eye went a bit to the West and will hammer the west coast with high surges, rain and wind. Where Joe is they are now saying a 2 to 4 ft surge and winds around 90 mph in gusts. I was sweating out my place just a couple air miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Wind driven rain may be an issue. My kids will be back there by Tuesday and hopefully not one of "those" phone calls. There's tornado watches out where my place is but that's par for the course during hurricanes. That took a section of my roof tiles during Wilma in 2005. No roof leaks though. There's another disturbance coming off the African coast right now that looks to develop something.

No telling what would happen if the rain blew out his cigar.  You think hell hath no wrath like a woman scorned?  Give Olgoat a very wide berth

Here in Palm Bay, the winds are about 65 - 70 mph now. We've had two tornadoes so far. Irma is supposed to pass, west of us, around 10:30PM.
No damage, so far and power is still on. I have an auto start Generac whole house generator if/when it does.
Sheltering in place (with 3 evacuees from the flood zones).
Evacuating when not called for causes problems for those who need to. Traffic, fuel shortages, etc.

If Ol'Goat has a sufficient supply of Cohibas and Remy Martin, he will be fine.
