Re: gearing up for sandy

Sails and canvas off. Fill with water. Extra dock lines with plenty of slack. Chafe gear for the lines. Position the boat in the center of the slip.

Planning to stay on the boat through Tuesday to raise and lower through the tidal surge and changes., Therefore extra food, cell phone batteries. Electricity will probably get cut off.

Removing stuff from the dock box. Make sure you have holes cut into the bottom of yours

My slip is very protected from wind in all directions especially eastern componnents as their is a bank on front of it 45 ft high.

Rain will be starting Sunday AM. Winds proabably wont exceed 60, but to early to predict surge as it depends where it makes landfall. Right now it looks north of us which will be a good thing, but some models say Delaware Bay. Every tree and power line in MD will be down because they let them grow through the pwoer lines here.

Isnt your dads boat three slips from me? Ill watch her during the storm if you guys are back home.
