Ok, my cars parked in a parking lot. Storm damages my boat... This a trick question? What color was Lee's white horse anyway?

It all depends on what your contract says. Virtually all of them have disclaimers relieving them from liability. You'd better check your contract carefully, because many of them also have wording assigning liability to you for damage your boat causes to the marina. In other words, if you boat was pushed into their sales office and destroyed it, they could come after you for the damage. But that's what insurance is for, assuming you have it.

PS - Welcome to Sailnet! My condolences for any damage to your boat.

Gary - I had a sledge hammer and was pounding at the same time I rotated them with a 2' rebar through the loop. It wasn't enough to get them to engage. If I had a shovel I would have tried to dig through the gravel, but I ran out of light and had to head in. The boat came out fine, so no regrets. Next week I'll step the mast, which makes it virtually impossible to blow the boat over.

Re: Will Hurricane Sandy Affect You?

I visited my boat this afternoon at the Shorepoint Marina in Bayville on Tom's River this afternoon. I've attached some pictures. The boat tied down with straps is mine. Notice the pile of boats stacked up against mine! Fortunately they are actually pressing against the straps and not so much the hull. I don't see any damage. Notice the Hunter 27 sitting perfectly upright, no stands, lightly touching a power boat that is lying on the ground behind it!

I don't think this was storm surge, I think it more of just a very high tide. All of the boats crashed together appear to have no damage. It looks like they were gently placed against one another and then the water drained away. Note that many of these boats have actually moved hundreds of feet from where they originally were.
