My boat is on the hard with the keel off, so she'll float real easy. This past summer some scumbag stole my ground anchors. Yesterday I got 4 more from McMaster Carr for $10 each, 3/4" shaft 4 feet long. Got he boat tied down with four anchors and two 2" ratchet straps over the top, mast is down and all hatches secured with ratchet straps. I took pictures at 8:30 last night, I doubt she's going any where. My big worry is I have only liability insurance, if my boat hits yours, I'm covered for your damage but not mine. If my boat gets damaged by someone else's and my boat hasn't moved then I guess I argue that mine is the only properly tied boat in the marina, so it is someone else's fault and they should pay. Hope I don't have to make the argument!
