Electrict has been out for a couple days, just came back on, went for a drive today and saw a few boats on the rocks, trees are down and its really wet......
I,m talking about the storms that came through the San Francisco
Bay area these past couple days.. I sailed into Sausalito last week and then all crap broke lose..
The winds at Angel Island were clocked at over 87 MPH and the weather
on the VHF
reported 22 foot waves every 8 seconds outside the gate...
A dive boat
was pulled into the slip next to me thismorning and the guy spent a couple hours stuffing foam into the holes in the bottom where he went upon the rocks tring to save a boat
And I lost
a wind generator
, My 4-winds secure strap broke lose and it decided to crank out some amps.. I felt the boat shake and I looked over at the amp guage for the wind generator
... cranking out 25 amps.. that sucker was kicking tail.. before I could get up to tie it down, the support mast
for the 4-winds had bent backwards over the boat at about 45 degrees...
As I looked out over the anchorage,(and I'm in a slip) I saw a number of boats laid over with the rigging
in the water
... not a place that I would like to be..........
