Re: TS Joaquin

I'm sitting on the Rhode River, just South of Annapolis. We are here for the SSCA Gam. No getting anywhere better for us. Whatever happens I'll be sitting here in the boat. A real nice hurricane hole. Feeling a bit smug about the great big honking anchor about now, and the brand ne 3/8" G3 chain. I've got the snubber at the cut water so I'll have 10/1 scope at worst.

Still, last night we had wind gusts to 32 knots. That was just a big thunderstorm.

We rode out Irene on the boat and only missed Sandy because we had a very important meeting. But we stayed with the boat as long as we could and put a lot of effort into preps. In a way things are more benign here. At the marina the big worry is the floating docks coming off the pillings. Got close on both Irene and Sandy. That would have made a real mess.
