We were in a marina in the Tampa area a couple of years ago, and at x hours out, the marina staff would prep any boats that needed it and then charge the owner for the time and use of extra lines. At least then, all the boats in the marina were secure and it was the marina who handled it.

Prepped the boat yesterday and this morning I'm happy to see we will probably be spared the worst. I don't think it's wasted effort, especially since I discovered a very worn snap shackle holding up my furled Jib. I never would have seen that if I hadn't had to drop the jib. I also ran across a couple of those circular cotter pin thingys that were somewhat less than circular and were begging for attention.
Hope you all fare well during the storm.

Agrees. While we had no more than a rainy day, I learned more about my rig, and plans for next time.

Earl turned out to be a pretty weak storm up here in New England. I think the cold front that hit the storm disorganized it to the point where it basically broke down very quickly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Spent 6 hrs prepping the boat to be hauled in Narragansett Bay. She would have done just fine right at the slip. Although, when I arrived at the marina on Thursday, there were only two boats at their slips and the other was leaving. That sign put me over the top to get hauled.

Tomorrow, we reinstall canvas, etc, etc. I expect that to take twice as long as getting it all down. Ugh.
