Hurricane Prep

Palmas del Mar

N 18° 04.67′   W 65° 47.78′

Thorough preparation makes its own luck – Joe Poyer


We hope our preoccupation with storm preparations will prove to be a good exercise that is never executed. Bob completed the design for a storm tie system in this summer location. We have four anchors aboard for storm deployment in a harbor and extra dock lines and anchor rode, but ended up needing even more supplies to implement the plan.

JJ was hired to splice the lines, since that isn't one of our better skills. We didn't want to practice on this important job.



Preparing 13 lines was a full half day's work

Depending on the direction of the storm, additional adjustments may be made



We’ll also need some last minute land arrangements if we need to leave the boat. Other than that, we are ready to go.


Hopefully those beautiful new lines will stay in the storage locker all season

After a week in port doing land chores we are ready to explore some new places. Next destination: Vieques.
