Re: Rate your Marina during Sandy ?

On a scale of 1-10, I'd give our marina about a 14. A few days before, they sent an email with suggestions of how to prepare (double up docklines, remove roller furling headsails, etc). The day of the storm, they had extra staff, who walked the docks every couple of hours adjusting lines, including working through the night. Next morning there was a summary email sent to all slipholders, and dock photos on their Facebook page. Also hot coffee at the ships store. *This* is how it should be done. [n.b., we're in Maryland, not in the very worst of the storm areas.]
