I''m not so lucky. So I''ve got a boat that will sail right through the worst crap that can get thrown at her. I remember one time, sailing for the Isles of Shoals out of Annisquam. A buddy of mine in another boat chose not to leave the river and laid the night in Lobster Cove. That afternoon, his anemometer read 60 knots of wind, IN THE COVE! I don''t know what it was blowing out where we were but we were getting POUNDED! All I can tell ya is my girl didn''t creak or groan a bit. She just kept on till we were in protected waters behind Cedar Island.

Ahoy Big Red,

I told Claudette she would never flood my daughters apt in League City right on the water. I told her that the night before she landed, before I went to bed ''cause she was headed straight for us. Immediately she turned. Not a drop of water from the storm or storm surge came near my daughters home.
But the street over was flooded to the top of the apartments. I judge God to be faithful.
I don''t consult the devil ''bout any thing ''cause he''s a liar, n I''ll read what I choose thank you,

Faithfully yours,
Forever,
Brenda

To all sailors, be you God-fearing or not, here''s a saying I have engraved on a plaque and mounted prominently in the cabin. "The sea is a fickle mistress that does not coddle fools."

I was in the Navy for six years. The tin-can I was on (with a 47'' beam) was nearly broached twice. Once in the North Sea, and once in the (supposedly calm) Mediterranean.

Unless you boat is about the size of modern aircraft-carrier, it won''t be able to handle what mother nature can throw her way.

~ Happy sails to you ~ _/) ~
