KeelHaulin Most insurance policies exclude canvas and sails from coverage. I think they were just trying to pack up and get out of town; forget about pulling down sails just tie the boat good and hope it survives the storm.

Have to agree with you. With a hurricane heading your way I can't imagine why you would leave the jib on the furler, or the main on the boom. Unless you are looking for the insurance company to buy you a nice new set

KeelHaulin Lots of those boats that are sitting aground look like they can be re-floated. While it looks very bad (and for many it is); many the boats that were not sunk look like they can be salvaged (if looters don't cut into the hull).

xort It would seem prudent to me to take down the headsail anywhere in the gulf around mid-August if you can't get to the boat easily. Otherwise take the headsail down as soon as any hurricane has a path projected into the gulf.

True. But I live an a major city hour and a half way from the lovely retreat of my home port, and I imagine many of the boats in Galveston Bay belong to- Houstonions? Houstonites? People from Houston.

Upon further consideration, I imagine I'd prep by house and evacuate my kids and dog before I worried about my jib.
