Weather Channel said these photos were faked and that neither one is even a hurricane much less Hurricane Isabel.

They are wall clouds produced by big thunderstorms, photoshoped a bit. There are pictures around the net of other wall clouds that are just fascinating.

Pictures were sent to me and I thought they looked a little strange! Nothing can escape the keen eyes of OSOer's I shall tell them Thanks Jo.

There have been a couple of threads on this. Nick (Baja Daze) had them before the storm was even a hurricane I believe.

Zoom in on your photo with the ship. the cloud is perfectly straight down and across. The ship is another fake as the pixles don't line up correctly.

There fun to look at though
