Hurricane Earl Video 


How windy is it?


-had to put oak's engines on to tighten lines. Boat's pointing into the wind. Had both engines in gear @2600 rpm just to slack the lines holding from windward.



The nice globe lights that are on the sidewalk/bulkhead, well the glass globes are blowing off.


Was sitting on the webbing on oak adjusting a line that goes from the bow to the other dock directly across. I got thrown up in the air from wind preasure.


There's a big cat here named tribe. Wind is getting under it and the first 5-10 feet of pontoon is out of the water.


Standing next to Peglegs watching the water go over the bulkhead. 

Kevin says " never seen anything like it".


Water is about 4 inches from going over the sidewalk/bulkhead.


Main part of the floating docks are going up and down about a foot and a half. Finger piers, don't want to be on them.
