I am working the angles to stay on the boat for the storm. I want to bring my digital load cell and record the loads exerted on the mooring pendants during the storm and be able to compare that to wind speed... We'll see, that's a big "hall pass"....

Hope all of you in the track of the storm come through it OK.

Re: gearing up for sandy

I took my head sail off and tied my main down pretty good. I adjusted the dock lines a bit and added some fenders. Took off all the canvas except the bimini that is already secured to the stay and the pulpit with a cover. I did wrap it with line as well though.

I also took everything expensive and portable out of my boat just in case it finds a new home under the dock or a bridge.

Re: gearing up for sandy

Oh, I also secured all my outside hatches with thin cord. I didn't have a manual bilge pump so I bought one from WM (not affiliated). Just in case I needed one after the poop hits the fan.

Chef2Sail - Good luck to you and I hope things are uneventful. Although, I think you're more than right about being the only one with power come Tuesday...

Re: gearing up for sandy

We took our boat to Anchorage Marina in Baltimore Saturday, I'm really impressed with the place and staff, it's protected and has floating piers. We have discovered a new cruising destination for next year. The marina is real friendly and the management actually REDUCES prices during hurricaines!!

We stripped everything off the boat except the genoa, somehow it's stuck up. I re-rolled it tightly and counter wrapped it with a spinnaker halyard...I hope it works but if thats the only damage we suffer I guess I won't be too upset. We did see many boats that didn't do any preparations, I hope them buildings shield the wind as good as some say they do.

Dave! be careful! I know you're in a protected spot but who knows what this storm can do. I do know I'm stuck at work watching the news making complete fools of themselves! "Look! the wind is blowing and the sailboat masts are swaying!" (Uh, yep, sailboat masts sway when the wind blows), It's almost painful watching these clowns freak out on TV when nothing has happened yet.

Re: gearing up for sandy

Indeed. You just never know. I'm on the mooring with a 500 lbs mushroom that has set for three years. Hopefully it's pretty deep in at this point with a 13,000 lbs boat digging it over that time. I have a really heavy duty 1" Yale pennant with chafe protection and through one of the main chocks. I decided not to double pennant (even though I have the extra) because I've found it gets into a tangly mess and starts winding the bow down.

By the way, I'm not ON the boat. I'm watching it from the house drinking coffee.

Re: gearing up for sandy

That is a nice place where you took your new boat. I went a adjusted the lines while it was still light out as the wind already has shifted somewhat. I have a new leak.grrrrrrrrrone of the middle hatches won't take 60 knot gusts with sideways winds. Winds holding at 45 with gusts in the 60s. I am watching e news and its like the hysterical idiots have forgot Thur ridilin.
