Thanks, we just had a major hurricane

Several harbors were completely destroyed, lots of boats thrown up on land or otherwise smashed.
Fortunately, our lines held. I had set the lines for extreme high water
(here almost 2 meters above normal and in the Baltic
we do not have tides), and they were long enough.
Only problem for me was that I got a slight case of frostbite on my fingers helping my neighbors save their boats.
Heres a pic from one of the harbors - the harbour is completely gone
