Hi, all --
Sheesh, which forum does THIS question fit into?
I need to leave my boat here in Florida
, in the water
at a marina, for several months right in the heart of hurricane
season. Naturally I'll take down the sails
, and bimini
and store them below.
But this StackPack thing -- I've never had one before and I'd rather not take down that spider web of bungee and lines if it's not absolutely necessary. Has anyone else come up with a safe, secure to leave it rigged and secure the canvas
part so that it won't flog about in the wind
and destroy itself?
My previous boat went through a hurricane
just fine on a mooring
while loads of other boats went up on the beach or crashed into piers. But that didn't have a StackPack (and I even took the whole boom off and put it down on the cabin sole
-- not going to do that this time).
What would you do? Just take it down and figure out all those lines later? Or ...?
Any other tips on leaving a boat for months (maybe 6 or so) are also appreciated!
