Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

We had no issues whatever, snuggled up Lodge Creek, off the Yeocomico, off the Potomac. Lots of high water and when I checked yesterday at 1500, the water was level with the docks. Odd having the waterline equal to my feet. No damage at all, just a few minor new leaks below from "somewhere", perhaps the genoa track ... but it's never leaked before.

As a side note I sold my house of 20 years 10 years ago. This house was in Ocean City , NJ.
Sandy swept it away the other night as the "eye" came ashore there.
My parents had a house for 30 years at 23rd and West Ave in OCNJ (sold in the 1990's). I have no idea what's become of it. Incredibly, my brother-in-law kept his Cape Dory 25D in the water in Somers Point and it sustained no damage. He now thinks they're indestructible. I say that he's just lucky.

Chef - I get what you were saying in the earlier post. Sailing is a continuous learning process no matter what experience one possesses. Being behind a computer snug and safe from the elements is far different from being outside.
