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.
