When sailing you'll have to keep her under 60 knots in the turns. Good luck tonight and above all STAY SAFE! I want to hear FROM you, not ABOUT you!

Here is our boat at Anchorage Marina in Baltimore...

Re: gearing up for sandy

Never lost power. The boat and the house sprang a few leaks though!!

I removed the main, mine catches a lot of wind even covered and strapped down.

The boat remained in the water but we are in a good spot. I still would have hauled it had the eye gone South instead of North. Looks like an early season as the cold sets in.

Re: gearing up for sandy

We came through fine. I worked enough overtime to pay for this Winters shrink wrap...I think (I never did that before). Going up to Baltiomore tomorrow to bring our boat home. I might have to hire someone to go up the mast and find out why I can't get my jib down (roller furling).

Re: gearing up for sandy

May want to think about getting a nice canvas cover in two parts., or making one for next year for your new boat. Two years of shrink wrap will cover the cost and the canvas ( duckcloth) will last 10 years easily. Also allows the boat to breathe well in the time you have her covered so no mildew problems occur. Can put in on while on land or if you decide to stay in the water for a couple years to save the winter storage costs.

Re: gearing up for sandy

I've been saving a HUGE piece of military type green canvas for around 20 years for that special need one day, I guess that day has arrived. We'll probably shrink wrap this year and I'll dig out that canvas and see what I have to work with for next year. I think it's like 15' X 20', 20' X 20' or even larger, it might be a good start.

Re: gearing up for sandy

Probably would cover the mast to the cockpit over the boom at least

Re: gearing up for sandy

Now that Sandy is past us, what is everyone planning to do for tomorrow's storm? Is it going to be bad or are the weathermen just running on leftover adrenaline since Sandy largely skirted our area?

Re: gearing up for sandy

I just received and update from Commanders Weather to expect up to 60kt winds overnight Wed. That's bigger than Sandy for us, which topped around 50.
