This hurricane tracking chart was spotted on the bridge of an entered ship during a Club ship inspection. The ship sails regularly through the Gulf of Mexico on a liner service where hurricanes can be expected. This is a useful tool for any ship trading or working frequently in areas vulnerable to hurricanes as magnetic strips can be positioned on the chart to indicate the location of hurricanes in the area.
