WuWei is on a distinguished road
Thanks for the info, CD and the rest of you! I'm getting a little leary of TS Dean, especially when he hits the gulf as a Cat 4 hurricane. Ironically, my vacation is for next week and the week after... We have all the stuff to prep the boat- TONS of line and fenders (in addition to plans to remove the solar panels, bimini, outdoor electronics, Jim Buoy, dink, main and genny), but it looks like I need a serious trip to Sams Club to stockpile on water and batteries (pretty well stocked on canned food.) We always keep a handheld VHF at home charged- CH16 provides hours of drama to entertain us on the back porch. The only thing we're trying to figure out is how we can secure our garage door in case of high winds. Tampa already got hit by TS Barry this year, so we're hoping that was it. So much for our plans to go to Jamaica next week...
