Storm Preparations

If anyone is wondering why I’m not writing lots of posts today, its because I’m down in Beaufort, North Carolina making sure our new boat is as prepared as it can be for the approaching storm – Hanna. Naturally, we buy a new boat, and a storm heads straight for it! Fortunately, our boat was already hauled out for some maintenance, and is sitting on the ground in a boat yard. Being out of the water eliminates a lot of possible damage in a storm. But, there are still risks from wind damage (flying debris, things breaking loose), or from lightning strikes. Wish us luck!

  1. Good luck, Frank!
    We just moved our 46′ Nordhavn from Savannah to Rhode Island in order to sell it. Looks like we got lucky. Glad to know you are high and dry!

  2. Good Luck !!! Take Cover !!!

  3. Take care of your new cat, and be careful of the storm surge. A friend of mine lost his Tayana 37 in Ivan even though it was out of the water in a Travel Lift. The storm surge went high enough to partially float it off, then the waves battered it against the lift.
    Good luck!
