Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

Palmetto Moon and all our dockmates came through undamaged. I was told one boat in the entire marina got some damage and that was from rubbing a piling and while I'm sure the owner is upset it wasn't something that would threaten the vessel.

What I did find unusual was that in the forest of masts of our marina, the huge marina across the creek and several other smaller ones, I didn't see a single headsail that had come loose.

We were really fortunate that this storm went north of us and the winds kept the surge down. I really feel for the residents of the coasts further north that suffered the full brunt of Sandy.

I really hope to haul out next time we get one this close.
