Default Boat US magazine destination Grenada

Seems strange that Boat US did an article in last months magazine on Grenada as a destination. Then it gets wiped out by a hurricane. They mention in the article about yacht folklore and hurricanes not going below North 12 degrees latitude. I couldn't figure out at first why from looking at the storm pictures why there were so many cruising sailboats there at this time of the year and the yards were packed with damaged boats. I guess they were maybe using Grenada as a hurricane hole during the season thinking they would not pass the 12 degree line? What a surprise as many of those boats are without insurance or self insured (is there a difference?) I hear of people having a hard time getting live aboard insurance and even harder when you travel the world.
