Re: Henri, What are you all doing.

We had very strong gusts, though probably not hurricane force. It did damage one of my mooring whips and I had to wrestle a bit to resecure the boat, but all ended well. My biggest worry was the storm surge, which proved to be almost non existent. Dodged a bullet.

Re: Henri, What are you all doing.

We decided to haul out, as we had some work that was more easily done on the hard. Our insurance also pays half the haul out costs. It was a lot of work to then remove the sails, take off the boom, and have the mast hauled. But our boat was in a secure lot, outside the flood-prone areas. I’m glad the storm didn’t turn out to be as bad as expected.

I would not have wanted to leave our boat on our 500# mushroom anchor. If we had a helix, I might have kept it on the mooring depending on the wind direction. But I’ve heard the helix might not be as hurricane proof as originally thought. Anyone use a mooring? If so what type and size of boat. Not too many boat were moved out of our mooring field.

Re: Henri, What are you all doing.

Not in the path of Henri, but rode out Elsa in a very surgy location behind Hilton Head at a floating dock. What I did:
  • Doubled up all dock lines, bow and stern at each corner plus fore and aft spring lines both sides
  • 2nd set of lines loose than the first set, which were fairly tight
  • check ant-chafe gear in place
  • Left headsail up but tightly furled, pulled the sheets out of all the fairleads etc and put many wraps around sail then tied down hard to bow pulpit
  • (furling main) set the lock on the mast winch, disconnected outhaul, wrapped tail of main around mast and lashed in place with plent of line
  • all loose items off the boat, removed bbq from rail
  • removed dingy from davits, deflated, secured to coachroof with racheting tie downs

What I would do differently
  • Not remain on the boat during storm!
  • Disconnect dockside water and power
  • close seacocks

Had my boat (36í sail) on a 400# in strong TS conditions a couple years back. Mushroom in soft mud. I donít know if it actually dragged 20í or so, or if it was just chain on the bottom repositioning, but it seemed like it was slightly off relative to some of the other boats in the field.

When this mushroom goes, I want to buy one that is MUCH heavier.
