The other bad part is if the storm hits you guys will end like Florida and be on the banned list where most insurance companies make you have a hurricane plan or do not cover the boat for it.
They will screw you in the end.

I am in Maryland if anybody has a free trailer I could borrow? The boat is 31 ft.

Thanks
My carver is on floating docks in perryville, md. Perryville Yacht Club is the name. 65-100' of water under my boat at low tide. Lots of room here if you need a slip for the weekend. It seems the best solution for situations like this. I believe I'll ride it out on the boat just for kicks.

Since nobody said it- even before you secure the boat make sure your policy is current..

Take it off the lift. Whats a couple hundred to protect a boat worth tens of thousands.

+1 If you cant get it out, floating docks with nice high guide poles are the very best protection shy of indoor storage.
