I think the comment was straight forward. Maybe just a little sage advise not pointed at any specific individual.

Re: postponing antifouling paint job. OK or not OK?

So the big cat I mentioned in post #178, did eventually end up dragging anchor and was headed directly at me

This after he/we sat in the same spots for 24 hours but were a bit protect by the cement ships on the first night. First night we had winds to around 20 knots

Tide change every 6 hours or so and quite strong

He started dragging around 6 pm or so last night and I happened to be watching the squall coming in ……….. it was the leading edge of a front and the winds came in from the WNW so there was no protection where we were anchored. Winds were around 30 knots according to the buoy/weather station nearby. I think we were actually getting more wind that the weather station

I called them on the radio first which they may have heard but also blew my whistle. They came out and she started maybe two engines while he got the anchor

They dealt with the squall like this for a while then anchored again closer to me but not directly in line

I'm just glad it happened in daylight hours.

I couldn't imagine 20 boats or so anchored together like some of you talk about a lot
