MMr......since we're on the topic of weather, can you tell me what the proper procedure would be if you've got a mooring ball and some weather (squall or worse) comes in? I assume you're idling in neutral in case the pendant breaks loose? Is it acceptable to drop the hook too? Any info you can provide would be great. I've sailed (motored) through a brief squall, ran aground, lost and engine and more but never been static while a storm came rolling/blowing through.
