Quickstep192 is on a distinguished road
So, as fate would have it, my boat is on the hard after being bottom painted.

I'm not even sure they'll let me leave it there, but I was wondering where it's safer:

Is it safer left on the hard at the marina, or is it better off in the confines of my slip at home?

My slip is large and protected, but subject to flood tides that could break it loose from the pilings and have it beat against the pier. (in Isabel, tides surged to 6' above normal)

On the hard is safe from flooding, but should I worry about it toppling in high winds?
