A good story, and those are the very reasons why I chose a marina north of the New Bedford Hurricane Barrier. While, it may be a bit of an inconvenience at times, being up on the Acushnet river, north of the swing bridge and hurricane barrier means that my boat wasn't exposed to the strong storm surge that the boats in Padanaram faced. Also, the only direction my marina has much exposure to strong winds from is the southwest, which is generally not the direction of the winds found in most storms from my experience.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
