Our insurance company (Markel) is modifying the rules a bit for this hurricane.

1. You get reimbursed 1/2 the cost of haulout up to $2000. (So they'd pay $1000). Normally it's half those dollar amounts. That is for a professional services to move your boat OR make it hurricane prepared (e.g. marina stripping off the canvas) OR hauling-out.

2. Normally you get reimbursed if you took the above action within 24 hours prior to the official announcement of a (not sure which) storm watch/warning or was it hurricane warning/watch (not sure). For Irene, you don't have to wait to protect your boat, just go do it.

Glad I called them. I may haul-out, and I have to work on the bottom for a few weeks this fall anyway.

Regards,
Brad

Brad,
I hope you can haul out. But where is the question?
EH, Sagg Harbor, MTK?
I'll be busy myself the next few days dealing with my own boat. My default plan is to ride it out on our mooring as I am most worried about a storm surge.
Mayor Bloomberg is talking about ordering evacuation of low lying areas of NYC including lower Manhattan where I am (luckily on the 2nd floor).
No one really knows how bad or tame this event will be. As a sailboat owner I am glad to know that even our local politician is thinking about the 'worst case' scenario which is similar to my thinking regarding my own boat.
Prepare for the worst but hope for the best.

I want to thank all of you for your suggestions. Though I've been sailing for 20 years (mostly other people's boats) I have never owned more than a small sailing dinghy myself. This year I realized a dream and bought a 2002 37' Pacific Seacraft Voyager in June. I have never prepared for a hurricane before and I'm grateful for all the suggestions.

Tom Petty had it right .... the waiting is the hardest part.

I'm happy to report that the boat came thru the storm unharmed largely due to the suggestions of this group. I have to confess that I was also very lucky. I waited too long and didn't have enough lines or chafing gear. When I checked on the boat this afternoon I found one of the lines had chafed thru completely and the port bow line was close to chafing thru as well (I guess that hawsepipe wasn't as smooth as it looked). Had the bow line let go there would have been a lot of damage. I now have a shopping list of all the things I should have had and will get that filled this week. Being luck is good but next time I want to be ready.

One more thing. All the discussions and posts just goes to prove just how awesome sailors are as a group. Thanks again to you all!

Fortunately your lesson came rather cheaply.
