As we sit here at Morningstar Marina in JAX trying to locate a new turbo, the wind
is blowing like crazy. Last night we had a huge thunderstorm blow over with gusts over 40 knots and today it is blowing a fairly steady 20-25 with some gusts over 30 and more.
When it really blows like this and we are in a slip and sitting below not doing much you really notice the hull
flex and/or rig pumping. I am not sure exactly what this is but you feel a sort of mild flexing in a rhythmic sort of way as if the rig is transmitting forces to the hull
and the hull is flexing or twisting a bit in response. Its not major or scary but you can clearly feel it and it definitely coincides with very strong wind
Anyone else experience this? Is if fairly typical or normal?
