Perfect storm

I''m not so lucky. So I''ve got a boat that will sail right through the worst crap that can get thrown at her. I remember one time, sailing for the Isles of Shoals out of Annisquam. A buddy of mine in another boat chose not to leave the river and laid the night in Lobster Cove. That afternoon, his anemometer read 60 knots of wind, IN THE COVE! I don''t know what it was blowing out where we were but we were getting POUNDED! All I can tell ya is my girl didn''t creak or groan a bit. She just kept on till we were in protected waters behind Cedar Island.
