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.
