Models have now pretty much let go of any hope of the trough pushing Joaquin out to sea. The trough is too far inverted and is going to suck this thing into land. Just like Sandy. Now it's just a matter of where this hurricanes gonna land although the NWS is saying south jersey so I assume they mean cape may. I have no slip neighbor so I moved into the middle of both slips, use heavy duty dynamic climbing line on the stern breast. I don't have spring cleats
, so I ran through a block for my Genoa
and put a bowline over the winches to act as a spring line. I spread the bow lines out as far as possible and lashed off with the springs using cinching knots that bite down hard as pressure is added so hopefully they won't slip. After doing salvage
work post Sandy, I've learned being on the hard
isn't always the best idea. As of right now, she's gonna stay in.
