Re: Bug out boat

I bugged out on my boat this past Saturday night at 21:00. Stayed out till 02:00 Sunday. My house is at elevation 400 feet so it is safe from Tsunami, but I wanted to potentially save my boat. Tsunami was only 1 foot, although in one harbor (Kahului, Maui) it was 2.5 feet.

Survive what? disaster can strike in many forms. A sister ship to mine was thrown half a mile inland by a tsunami, it landed on a crushed house, that boat sustained only minor damage and is floating again, the house is toast. This thread isn't about Hurricanes its about being prepared.

But your boat was less likely to survive it than your house, in most cases.

On the bug out front, the north west would be a good place to be on a sailboat. Lots of food (zombie ocean life notwithstanding), water and very few people. Life would be hard though, but I imagine better than the overcrowded places on earth.

Oh, and as far as post SHTF currency goes, a old friend that was into this sort of thing swore it would be the venerable 22 round. Most common firearm in existence so very high demand. He buried cases of them in waterproof food containers (the ones the ship olives and such in). He figured that after the apocalypse you could trade them for just about anything.
They make plastic lids for glass canning jars, a far more waterproof solution for ammo storage. Plastic is too permeable over time. A stainless lid to put under the plastic one, leaves only metal and glass for water to penetrate, not much chance of that happening..
