You're best off having the boat hauled out an put on blocks..

I'm already noticing some erratic tides down here.
We usually see a 2' tide change in Delray.. It was nearly 4' yesterday...
All the boats there we're blocked up during the Dec storm in'92 were lost in the 10+ storm surge, at least in our town. My boat just sat on the lift with another 5' before the water would even begin to touch the bottom of the boat. We plan on riding this one out the same way, although my biggest concern are the winds, not the surge.

Pull the boats out of the water, from what I've heard your insurance will pay $500.00 for the haul in severe weather. I would call to confirm.....

Some good boat-related hurricane reading:

Hurricane preparation

Although if your boat is in dry storage and you don't have a way to move it, about the only thing you can do is call your insurance agent. A relatively flimsy drystorage building + 160 mph winds = lots of crushed fiberglass.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words...

Mike,
Where was that pic taken?

Winds are down to "only" 120 right now. Still too soon to tell where it is going.

Oh well, if it gets creamed, then thats what insurance is for, and I have good insurance - right Sy??

Sy? SY??

Bill,

The pic was from somewhere in Florida, though I don't know if it was Opal or Andrew. I'd be real skeptical about those "rating" numbers... seems to me that it sounds good, but what does it really mean (sort of like a power rating on an amplifier )

Maybe your girl Isabel will help you buy a new 'Gun!
