Hurricane Dorian

The latest Marine weather forecast this A.M. is as follows for Fundy:

Gale warning: Winds light increasing to 15 knots this evening and East to 20 knots overnight. Winds increasing to N.E. 35 Saturday morning to N.E. 45 knots on Saturday afternoon.

Waves: Today, tonight & Saturday- Seas 1 metre or less building to 1-2 m. Saturday morning and 3-4 m. by Noon Saturday.

Sunday morning: Winds N.E. / 25-35 kn. Diminishing to Westerly 15 kn. In the afternoon.

The plan is to haul out the gallows , the workboat and reposition the tee-section of the dinghy docks to the South side of the wharf or lee-side beginning @ 4P.M. today. The remaining sections dinghy docks will be quite vulnerable in this projected gale and you would all be wise to consider taking your individual dinghies  ashore and out of harm’s way until the weather subsides.

Ed Stanfield, Rear Commodore

Docks launch was a 5 of 5

Dock launch drew a great turnout and because the team really worked together just about everything got done (we did run into not enough lag bolts for the cleats, a busted electrical line and water connector).

All in all, 5 out of 5! Gold medal for team launch!

Now I gotta talk to the organizer about getting better preps done … lol
