Storm surge + high tide ...

Yesterday I looked out of the cockpit and found that there was only about one foot of the wall left dry in my marina. Fear to think what happens here if we get this and some surge and some high winds. At least I know local waterfront bar-owners will serve me good rum if we SAIL into their place ;-)
