Everyone loves to talk about Latitude(s). Generally it's closely associated with attitude. You've probably heard a ton of catch phrases or sayings regarding attitude. Heck, Jimmy Buffet even sang about it in "Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude." While that is all very good and well, don't disregard the importance of Longitudinal Attitude.
We often hear "your boat is...where?" We answer "Brunswick" and usually get blank stares back. So why Brunswick? If you talk to cruisers you will find it's a terrific hurricane/storm hole. One of the best on the east coast. But why? Look at the map. The longitude is approximately the same as Cuyahoga Falls Ohio which is WAY inland. Brunswick is one of the western most harbors on the eastern seaboard. Yeah, it's the same longitude of many other places but Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders made Cuyahoga Falls kewl in "Back to Ohio". I always loved that song as a kid (Chrissie Rocks!) and wondered where in the hell Cuyahoga Falls is. Now I know, same longitude as Brunswick GA.
