Hurricane Prep in Pensacola

I will be presenting a free roundtable on preparing your boat for a hurricane and damage control on Tuesday, August 9, 6:30 PM at the West Marine store, 3500 Barrancas, Pensacola, FL 32507.

You are all invited.

I have been presenting an annual seminar for West Marine on hurricane prep for over ten years now. I have ridden out all hurricanes in our area since 1996, including Ivan in 2004 on board my Cal Cruising 46. I do not reccommend this for most people. After my service in the Marine Corps and then 29 years as a Fire Fighter in Southern California, I feel prepared to deal with storms.

I will talk about techniques, hidey holes, gear, reducing windage and more.
For more info, you may call me at 850 572 1225

G'Day Tom,

Good on you, mate! If we weren't 3000 miles away Ann and I would come and listen, and maybe have a cerveza or two. That's a nice thing that you are doing.
