Hurricane Ginger 1971

David Blanchard reported in a comment to previous post that Hurricane Ginger of 1971 holds the longevity record for documented hurricanes. Ginger persisted in the Atlantic Basin for more than 27 days - so Nadine has to persist for another week to challenge Ginger. The two graphics below are from the NHC archives - top lists 1971 Atlantic Tropical Storms and bottom shows Ginger's long, wandering track.
