Default Hurricane Boat Preparation Thursday July 22

Come by and join us for a roundtable discussion of "Howudidit" getting your boat ready for the hurricane. Yeah, I know, put it on the trailer and head for Tennessee, but some of us do not have that option.

Thursday 22 July evening at 7PM at West Marine, 3500 Barrancas, Pensacola.

Bruce Mitchill and I, Tom Vandiver will discuss our experiences riding out Hurricane Ivan aboard our boats. Not reccommended! We saved our boats, but then we are both Marines.

Dang flathead, thats pretty hard core. My plan is to use 5000pd straps to reinforce it to the trailer. One on the bow, one across the T-top to hopefully keep it from flying off, and one on the stern. Then I will chain the trailer to the big live oak that the boat sits under normally in the driveway. Thought about deflating the tires halfway to help with the extra chocks so it doesnt drift with wind. After that, give her a salute as we head to Disney. If that doesnt work then the house is gone as well and we will have bigger worries at that point, insurance will kick in.
