    Whoa!

    Kevin
    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I dunno, Cleek, this photo indicates that some reasonable sized cruisers and pricey runabouts predominate.

    Even some sailboats, and yes, there are pontoons.

    Me three. I'm thinking that when the furniture starts blowing away, you abandon the toys and carts and run for shelter.

    That's a big covered berth marina. The crazies who were still on the dock when the corrugated roof sheets were flying had a couple of pontoon boats tied up there. Note it was the yahoos with the pontoon boats that lacked the good sense to get the hell out of there. Out on the coast, the few covered marinas we have are more strongly built. Even so, in a seventy MPH plus blow, I've seen those corrugated roofs get ripped apart and those corrugated sheets go sailing off, only to be found hundreds of yards away. If one hit you on the fly, it could probably cut you in half.
