Re: TS Joaquin
This is one of those storms where the forecasts are really bouncing around.
High tide on Forked River Barnegat Bay is around 3:00 tomorrow. I'll take a run down and see how high it's running. By then the models will be showing some consensus and I'll make the call on hauling vs stripping canvas etc. As Otter said a decision to haul is a decision to end the season. For various reasons I haven't had much time on the water this year and I'd like to stretch it out a few more weeks.
Today about all I can do is clean out the gutters and pull out the extra dock lines and fenders so they're handy if I need them.
