But I don't feel so bad now... What with gustav going overhead and Ike cruising close by and we got the full effects of one and side-swiped by the other.
I had a feeling there would be a lot of wind, so I secured my boat well. The only thing I forgot to do was take the solar panel off of it, it's not attached, it just has rubber feet and sits on top of the companionway. Well, the solar panel didn't move and inch and I was surprised it was still there, but 3 docks attached to 300 slips were ripped from their moorings? Wind is funny.
