Hurricane Manual for Marine Intersts

some good Information for newbies and the refresh


25% of hurricane and storm-related fatalities result from boaters trying to secure vessels in deteriorating storm conditions. It is up to the boat owner to prepare a hurricane plan in the event of major storm.

I sort of lost interest when they wrote...."set 2 Bruce or CQR anchors out at 10 degrees"...

I know from all the TF experts that would say "Say it ain't so!"....

Of course when you get to adding the 100 pound mushroom.... I am sure some heavier is better groupies will give a thumbs up...

Just kidding...thanks for posting....alL info can be useful...even if you don't want it, need it or agree with it. It can always spark an new idea in you!

Also don't use the "correct method" for tying to a cleat...another figure eight or two is necessary to keep it from jamming under load.
