Could not quite catch the name, as the transom was beyond finger pier a foot.

She will be there until tomorrow afternoon as I didn't venture up there today. Snow in the morning here. The afternoon storm conditions wouldn't of been conducive to working on the boat much less getting her back to Seattle. Lastly, I am recovering today as I am pretty stiff - kinda feel like my body was tossed around by a pro-wrestler.

David was kind enough to go down and check up on the boat for me this afternoon, tidy a few things up for prep of the storm, and hooked up his shore power cord to charge up the batteries. (Thanks again)

Unfortunately, she will heel in the high winds - bare poled, due to the high free board. Which ironically was probably another facet of why we didn't have more issues Sat...I just hope the fenders held out...

Tomorrow, I hope that I can get the engine turned over and verify that the prop wasn't damaged and see about getting her lifted to inspect the damage. I have a feeling it will be a long week.
