I'd love helpful suggestions on hurricane
preparedness (hauling out vs. floating docks, marina or yard recs in Texas
and any checklists, if you have one). I'm especially interested to hear from anyone who has weathered a season in northern Yucatan
coast recently or who is currently planning on doing so.
This is our first season in the zone - last year was in Panama
. We're currently in Isla and will be working in Austin this summer. We are considering whether to leave Mother Jones in a slip here in the inner lagoon
(or somewhere else along the MX coast) or whether to bring her back to Texas.
Regardless of whether we leave the boat in Isla or somewhere along the Texas coast (Galveston to Port Aransas), we will not be with the boat. (And, yes, I know this isn't ideal, but it's what's happening. We've just got to do our best given our situation.)
Are there holes along the Texas coast that you would recommend or should we haul out
and put her on the hard
? Recommendations of yards on high ground/inland? Should we dis-mast for storage
Anything else I'm not asking here, but should definitely consider?
Thanks so much!
