Re: Hurricane is a comin, now what???

Put the extra anchors down near the main so the boat still can swing and drive 'em in. I used two on a 31' boat when a hurricane came to Norfolk and left the marina for an anchorage nearby. The anchors held well but clearly the boat made several rotations during the night. Had to untangle and they were deep in the mud but glad to say we came out fine. Also, be sure overboard drains are clear, and rainwater doesn't sink your baby. Good luck.
