We were supposed to travel to the Outer Banks for my nephews wedding this weekend. Sad to say we had to cancel our plans and the Bride and groom had to change theirs...

Best of luck to everyone in the path of this monster. Having dealt with Katrina, I know first hand how Hurricanes affect things. Please let us know if we can help.

And pull the plug if the boat is on the trailer.......

I wondered about that when a hurricane was heading our way. Would it be better to leave the plug out and risk the boat sinking if the storm surge got high enough? Or should I put the plug in, leave the bilge on "auto", make sure the battery is fully charged, put the cover on tight to minimize rain entry, and tie the boat to a tree?

I guess the best choice would be to hook it up to the truck and take it with you when you evacuate.

Make sure you have good insurance

I wasn't even thinking about evacuate when I posted. I think this is it.

I went to the lake last night to mow the grass since I skipped it last weekend. Everyone in the cove had pulled their ski boats from their lifts (Hydrohoist) but left their pontoons in the water. They've dialed back the storm impact for my area, so we'll see how the weekend goes.
