Re: Hurricane Preparation

i live in south louisiana . lowered the mast and towed Erin Go Bragh home last night . there was one other trailer sailor left at CYC when i left . was my first time lowering the mast we used a rescue 8 with ears and a rappelling rope you could lower it with one hand we made a crutch with pvc pipe

its parked in my yard with the bow pointed east our street has never flooded but they were driving air boats up and down the street a mile away for katrina

going out there this morning and finish tying up all the standing rigging . putting a few more chocks by the wheels .
first storm as a boat owner

while its home im going to put new bearings on the wheels and inspect the axels before i take it back to cypremort point
