Was a bit breezy last night/this morning wasn't it. It's really too bad everybody doesn't pull their rig when they store for longer periods of time.

Just looked at the link. I'm surprised the marina let that one boat stay there with the scissors jack supporting the stern. Don't they have jack stands? The way those blocks are stacked was begging for trouble.

Also have to wonder about the person who let their boat get stored next to it. I know if it was my boat in the cradle next to it the office would have heard an earful from me.

BLJ,
Big wind, big trouble indeed!
Nice write up by the way.
Glad to hear you were relatively unscathed after all.

Hope everyone's insurance is paid up. (and that sort of damage is not excluded!)

The snapped-off keel is what really makes it register with me . Ouch! Makes me cringe.
