I'm starting to get the idea that this boating stuff could be expensive.

For anyone who wants some good information on what happens to boats during hurricanes, the August/September 2012 issue of Boat US magazine has a comprehensive article beginning on page 72.

Also, go to: BoatUS – Hurricane Center – Preparation for Boaters

and click on "Hurricane Prep" and the rest of the links.
