And then there's the thing about signing the contract
I don't mind getting older. I'm not a fan of the way a lot of folks think these days.
tgzzz, You are absolutely right that my statement (that many choose to leave their boats in marinas
regardless of their contractual agreement) is a generalization; however, it is based on my observation when removing my own boat and returning to see those damaged at the marina. When people are stressed with the approaching hurricane
they often find the care of their boat lower on their list of concerns and coming after their house, their family
, their business and their relatives. You had stated this was "incredibly bad advice to readers". Please notice that I was not recommending leaving a boat at a marina. I, myself, have elected to move from marinas
for several hurricanes. Regardless, it frequently occurs,- many people do not remove their boats from marinas during an impending storm despite policy and contracrts. Thanks for reminding all that it's best to move to protection or be hauled out and sercured.
