Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

we got lucky here.
as for antichafe, i found that only necessary when boat is too tightly tied to dock. allow natural movement without tugging or jerking and use same lines for over 6 years even with 50 forming storms overhead.
patricia ate one line's outer sheathing. i still have 6 intact lines.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

If you plan to secure to the dock itself, I'd use a short piece of chain, for the concrete part of it, and springy nylon 3 strand from the chain to the boat. Failing that, I do think chafe gear is possibly needed, because concrete and other dock materials are so rough, though we generally do not use it, it would have saved one previously good dock line when we left the boat in Tasmania for 7 months, only.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

Exactly. And if you're not exposed to wave action, also not a big deal.
But keep in mind that unless you are on a floating dock, those lines can get looser and/or tighter as the relative height of your boat and whatever it's tied to changes as the boat goes up and down on the surge.
If you're in a wide slip with long lines and not much surge; no big deal.
Narrow slip? Short lines? Fixed dock? Big surge? Big deal.

Fairleads can cause chafe, too. They are mostly too small. And are often located such that they cause a sharp bend between the lead and the cleat. That bend concentrates force and friction and can cause enough heat to melt nylon lines. In a few minutes.

And don't ignore other strong points you can tie to. Base of the mast, winches, anchor roller, etc. Depending on how well built your boat is, these may be stronger than any of your cleats.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

I'm on the hard in Marina Guaymas. Well, my boat is, and I am all the way up here in SF! This thing strengthened quickly. I talked to a yard worker who snugged up my stands; that's about all anybody could do. I am just trying to stay busy and hope for the best. Jimena was the last storm to go over. I have pictures of the eye passing over from the PO of the boat. I think she had 40-50 knots of wind and a lot of rain. Flooding is definitely going to be an issue for the locals once the storm passes.

Best wishes and enjoy that Don Simon. I may take a nip of Scotch soon.

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

this will undoubtedly cause rivers to flow in streets of guaymas. as i understand, the marina is not? in one of them. you should be ok.
baja , however, will need a good cleanup and restoration from san lucas to gonzaga bay, it appears.....

the favorite place for these to rapidly intensify is cabo corrientes. i have watched that happen for 3 now 4 years....

Re: How do we prepare our boat for 50 kt winds?

That's correct. The marina itself isn't in flash flood territory. But the roads they've built out to Marina Guaymas are old river/flash flood basins, so it'll be interesting to see how badly they flood. If they get the 3-5 inches of rain, yikes.

I just worry about boats toppling with possible 70-80 knot gusts, and then the dreaded domino effect happening. Has anyone had their boat on the hard with similar conditions. Just needing some reassurance.

It'll be fine, right?
