This happened this time last year, the very day we brought home the SJ21 from Colorado (a white-knuckle ride in itself). The winds built all afternoon, peaking at 105 mph (a weather station ten miles north recorded 130!) Our Bucc18 pulled its lightweight stakes, jumped its wheel chocks, and flew backwards. The SJ21 and another trailer spun 90 degrees and only timely driving of T-stakes kept them from going over.



My neighbor's house under construction lost its entire second story; 2x12 beams were snapped like matchsticks & sections of sheathing were tossed over a mile into the valley. Now all the boats & trailers are heavily tied down to earth augers planted in 3' of concrete.
