Hurricane Erika

Wrinkles is the 2nd boat in the left row - Green Canvas

So what are our plans if Hurricane Erika decides to come visit us? Right now we are securely tied into a slip at Fisherman's Village Marina. We just committed to another week at the bargain rate of $20/day. This way we can weather the storm if it comes our way in a protected spot. There are plenty of stout ropes aboard Wrinkles to lash her to the very nice wooden pilings at our slip. The concrete piers and solid breakwater offer us a great place to sit this out.

If Erika continues on toward us we will remove all the canvas and sails so Wrinkles offers as little wind resistance as possible. It sure is nice to be in a secure spot with so much advanced warning.
