"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Aug. 25 - Baltimore, MD

Day 160 - Hurricane Preparations
Anchorage Marina

We spent the day getting the boat secured. Stan doubled all our lines and will take down the bimini tomorrow. He also spent time talking to other boaters on the dock. They say this is one of the safest places to be, many were here during Hurricane Isabel in 2003 and they did fine. The marina has floating docks, which mean they move with the tide. That really helps keep your boat secure and the lines tight. Baltimore is 90 miles or so from the Atlantic, so hopefully all we will get are tropical force winds, a high tide and some rain. We will pick up a rental car tomorrow, just in case we need it. We may go to a hotel Saturday...even if the storm stays well to the east of here, it will get a little rough and we're not sure we want to be on the boat. The car will give us some options.
