Re: Floated off the stands

Someone would have had to do as they do in the Caribbean islands. they haul out, have some sort of place to ut the boats on the hard, and secure them via on land or in the ground, such that they will not float away. i also believe since they get hit a lot, they have land that is high enough to do this, so storm surges do not worry them.

Reality is, the OP did the best he could, marina as well. If they were hit by monthly storms like this, they would ALL have a different setup to handle these monthly issues during the season.

We will all hope that the boat is in repairable decent shape after what happened back there.


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
