So, I called the marina, and we will go back in and take a slip for tonight. I know our anchor would hold, and I could even put out a second anchor if we had to. But it will simply be more comfortable secured to a new floating cement dock system (with shore power) rather than bouncing about all night out here in the basin!
This is “pleasure boating” after all! It is OK to opt for comfort.
We are now secured at dock for the big blow!
We are safe. Bring it on!
