As NCC320 stated, There will not likely be tremendous currents in comparison with the wind effects. Regardless, there will not be a significant movement of water that is not in the same direction as the wind. In short, my experience suggests that the need is to prepare the boat for the wind and not current. I'm sure there are exceptions. Especially if you are in and area were the Corps of Engineers have countered nature by keeping large bodies of water from there natural flow. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
