Well, hurricane Earl was not a big event at our anchorage. We did get gusts up to 35 knots, I'd guess.
The abandoned boat lived throught it, even with 2.5 miles of fetch.
I found out the reason why the anchor line had no chafe when I look at it (from my dinghy). Someone went on the boat and let out a few feet of anchor line.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
