Sleepless Night

Quite a wind event last evening and this morning.  Sustained North winds of 36 with gusts to 49.  Willie's Tug is side tied to our low dock that is usually about 12 inches above mean high tide.  Well during the evening we had about 3 inches of water over the dock.  We doubled up on all our lines and and used all of our fenders.  All night we continually adjusted the fenders to keep Willie off the pilings and dock.  Between adjustments we prayed and checked our insurance policy.  Currently the wind is down a bit at 21 gusting to 29 so it is a bit calmer in our "protected channel".  Praise God, Willie's Tug survived with nary a scratch, but Walldog is a bit tired this morning.
