Re: Tornadoes and boats...

Pictures of water spouts here in Baltimore this afternoon.

These occurred within 3 miles of my, Tartan37, and 4arches boats and no I didn't run for my boat for protection. No way.


Check on the pictures on the local screen of the waterspouts

Re: Tornadoes and boats...

I grew up in tornado alley. I have friends whose homes were turned to rubble by the tornado that ripped through Omaha, NE in 1975. I have hunkered down in the basement many times when tornadoes were nearby. No offense, really, but I would consider it quite insane to stay on a boat with a tornado approaching, and better shelter available nearby.
