I marvel at how many people have moved to FL in the last 10 years who have not been through a tropical storm or hurricane.

They are in for a rude awakening one of these days. Hopefully later and not sooner.

Just hope all their boats fit behind the Ortona lock

3) 2 breast lines, 1 at each side of bow.

Works for us, but always interested in your comments.
For a storm I'd have larger and more fenders. Both ball and tube if I had or could get them. Double up on all lines and have both forward and aft leading spring lines. Plus add chafe gear as needed.

Our previous marina had lined each berth/slip with fendering. Current one doesn`t, its DIY, initially we hung fenders on the boat, then we put fenders long ways along the tie side deck edge of the slip, there were enough gaps in the planking to get lines through to tie the fenders in place, at this stage we monitor and adjust them to make sure the system is working. So far so good.
