    Re: Latest Hurricane?

    Greetings from Ft. Lauderdale....
    the wind is satrting to blow a bit... Ocean swells near the shore are at about 6'-8' with the wind knocking the tops off.

    Idiots are in hysterics everywhere.. I saw a guy flip out at Arby's!
    Gas statios have no gas left.
    (Yes, I filled the Duramax up)

    I pulled a customer's 38 Fountain Express Cruiser out at the public ramp in Pompano this moring. You should have seen all the circus acts going on there. Every guy had his 1/2 ton Chevy 2WD trying to pull their buddies 38 center console boat out of the water....

    We had no trouble getting the 15,000lb boat on the trailer and back inside the fence here... He is one happy customer... His dock/slip is about 1/2 mile from the Hillsboro inlet...
    The tide here is already about 1' over normal high tide.

    Then we went over to Schubles house to help tie his two float lift in the middle of his canal... The tide was touching the bottom of his dock... About two more ft and the dock will be under water. I'd say the house and nice new swimming pool are about another 5' over that...

    All the OSO computers were humming away- for now.... Get it while you can...

    I'm getting on a plane back to PA to go hang with the folks while this blows through.

    I'll be back in town Tuesday.
    Give me a call if any of you need help..
    My cell is 954-551-1051

    Hang in there guys.

    Should I stay or should I go?

    Our roof with-stood 100 mph winds as the eye of Charley passed about
    10 miles away. Can't make a decision!!
    Peace & grace be to this place.
    ........ God bless the troops, always! :)

    I had agreat addition to this thread, and the only thing I can add is HURRICAINES SUCK. We had Fabian last year, he blew off the radio mast at 177mph on Harbour Radio. Please heed all the warnings and good luck from Bermuda. Please do not think that you are stronger than this thing because it will let you know that you are not. BE CAREFUL and take care.

    I know that I`m up here in Illinois but I have been experiencing a great deal of anxiety today worrying about my friends down there. I know I won`t get much sleep tonight thinking about it.
    You will all be in my prayers.

    I hate to mention this, but there are two more storms brewing off the coast of Africa.

    Re: Latest Hurricane?

    Fever Mike,
    I would be more inclined to leave the boat on a wash rack and fill it with water and lash it down to keep it from blowing over, than to put it in a rack that might fall over.

    I sure am glad we're back here in Ga. at a time like this.

    Take care kids.
