Make sure your insurance is up to date. I was watching the weather channel watching boats tied in slips getting beat to death. Did not even have a cover on them. I guess its not always sunny.

None of the marinas in Palm Beach have indoor storage for over 30 feet that I know of around here. Of course their might be on in Boca but I also dont want to drop $1000 a month.

FWIW, I think we dodged a bullet. It did nothing more than drizzle all night. The storm moved slightly north and will make landfall in Melbourne/Vero. God bless anybody up there it looks BAD.

Good to hear

What's the thinking for not keeping boats over 30 inside during a hurricane

Best of luck out there. This storm seems pretty legit.
