If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Not affected at all, but it's not a big boat, and I have a thing for bungee cords. It's on it's second and final season anyway.

I had the wind instrument on yesterday and it recorded a max gust of 60 knots (in Jersey City). It really was honking for a few minutes midafternoon. A bit noisy for sleeping but my wife says she sleeps better when the boat is moving around a bit. The owner of one of the boats on the hard is not going to be happy when he sees what is left of his former jib which came undone from the furler. No idea why someone would leave the jib on all winter.

NOAA Buffalo coast guard station shows a max sustained of 42kts and gust of 50kts. My weather station here at home shows 35kts max, but it's in a pretty sheltered spot, lots of trees and buildings.

If your cover can't take 60 mph you need a new canvas man!
or to get rid of the blue poly!
