Re: Halloween Hurricane
As I was driving out of the boat yard yesterday, I saw some people on their ~40 foot poweryacht working diligently to cover their hard bimini (open sides) with a cheap plastic tarp. The thing looked like it was already shredded from several seasons of use. I thought, "gee, sailors usually REDUCE sail area when expecting a heavy blow."
Down the road at my marina (which I've vacated for the season), there were several boats that still had their biminis up. Owners were nowhere to be found. I'll go back next week to survey the damage. I helped out some people who were working to prep their boats, but I will not touch an unattended boat without the owner's permission.
