I don't feel it is all that crazy as there is as close to 100% chance of something happening as is possible

As far as the whole hauling thing well some of the hardest hit boats in New Jersey were hauled and floated away in the surge

I did the right thing my boat was hauled and blocked at home and fortunately the big azz 150 year old tree did NOT FALL

My friend down the road did the right thing his boat was NOT HAULED and the big azz tree did in fact fall on his hauling spot


I was really freaking lucky my carefully racked mast was just above the storm surge other wise all my electric and winches and Profurl bearings would have has thousands in damage

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
