Well (snicker), in this area and especially in this slip, if we did sink, we wouldn't sink far!!! Damn near run aground coming into the slip! However, even if that were not the situation, would it still be the safest place?

Lots of variables, but good food for thought. Now is a great time to consider it too given that most of us can be exposed to a tornado and that season is upon us.

Personally, we have a hurricane plan. We have a heavy-weather plan. We have a flood plan (keep out boat stocked up in case of heavy flooding). Didn't really have a tornado plan until a couple of nights ago... and it was thrown together quickly in the heat of the moment.

How many of you have put any thought to this? What would you do?
