Not saying it was as intense as Tracy, but Marco could have been an hurricane during the peak intensity. There is only one recon plane fly a mission into Marco and at that time it was a 55 kts storm. The true max intensity remain a mystery. Marco got a T-number of 2.0 while the recon plane measure 55kt wind inside Marco so obviously the estimate of the intensity isn't a very good for this particular storm.
But it should be noticed that Tracy have reached the maximum intensity of Hurricane force, while Marco is still of TS strengh...
But still, Marco should be the new record for the smallest TC.
