Here's what I've learned from enduring two Force 10 storms and lots of lesser storms over the last 50 years:
You can never be over prepared or have enough sea sense.
Your boat is different and your storm will be different than anything you've read about or been told.
The very thing you rely on the most will fail.
You will be what gets you through the storm.
