Re: Thunderstorm in Chesapeake Bay

After reading Hal Roth's Book "Handling storms at sea" I wonder about using lying ahull in the Bay during a Tstorm as long as you have enough sea room. Since you should not have to worry about breaking seas in the bay seems like this could be an alternative. I have never used it yet, I have always just dropped sail, started the engine and pointed the boat into the wind.
