Re: Trying to be prepared for the inevitable hurricane
I always come back to the question ... Is it better to be on my heavy mooring ball or to haul out? I always see hurricane photos of boats stacked on top of each other at marinas post hurricane.
You'll always get tons of anecdotal evidence of people that survived in either scenario, when the other didn't.
However, insurance companies are in the business of setting odds and trying to beat them. They all recommend going on the hard and often will help pay for it.
That doesn't mean that every single hard location is superior every hurricane hole mooring, but the odds are in that favor overall.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
