Hurricane Preparedness

"In 1996 Ventana dodged two hurricanes along the US east coast and finally was hit by a third one as we waited at Vineyard Haven in Martha’s Vineyard. Fortunately we had several days notice to prepare the boat. Our first decision was where to position the boat. While we could have stayed on the secure moorings inside the breakwater we were most worried about other boats that may not be properly secured. With that in mind we proceeded into the lagoon where we could anchor far from other boats."
