Advice: Should we leave our NEWLY PURCHASED Yankee Dolphin 24 tied to the slip in our protected cove in a creek off of the Severn River or anchor it in the creek away from the small marina? Yes, newly purchased, first boat, here comes a hurricane. Thanks, Murphy.

My lawyers have not cleared a response - but I would say that the variables, known only by you and the locals are
1)past experience there - high water and wind damage to boats
2) Your mooring/anchor is only as good as the other guys' - and his chafing gear. When a boat breaks away and hits you you can always say but my mooring/anchor held...
3) Often a marina will evacuate if there is serious concern about damage to boats and marina facitities. If the marina operator is experienced he/she may be your best resource
Good Luck
Ron, Marionette, #12

ps I am currently up in Maine - tropical storm conditions forecast. This morning I moved from a good but somewhat exposed mooring to a 'hurricane hole' type mooring at Bucks Harbor. Is up on

Thank you, Ron. We consulted the local salts who have lived in our neighborhood for decades and they thought the slip was the best place. She is secure and we will try to check on her periodically. It's funny...life has mysteriously changed to revolve around...a Yankee Dolphin.

How do we post photos on the forum/site?

Posted: 27 Aug 2011 at 1:53pm
For photos on the website proper - Rosters, Technical stuff, Stories, individual pages, etc., you email photos, preferably in JPG format, to the webmaster RonBreault@dolphin24.org These can be imbedded or as attachments to your email.

For Forum pictures, a limited number (we have some capacity limitations)can be posted in a Forum topic. In this case you need a URL address for your photo. Most people set up an account with Snapfish or some similar online photo service and insert it from there. Once that is set up Follow the instructions on the insert window above (the tree)

I just noticed an 'intruder' has inserted some gibberish on that window that I have to clean up when I get a chance. If problems persist just send them to me.
