We got word today that Skinny Dippin' is safe! She weathered Hurricane Irene in our favorite boatyard in Oriental NC, Sailcraft. They are a trusted business and we are very loyal customers. We ended up putting her closer to the storm, but she was on land, which is said to be the safest thing next to a protected mooring. We were worried about her safety only because Oriental took a 9 foot storm surge from the Pamlico Sound. We didn't know how high it needed to be to float her. Luckily, it is more than 9 feet!!
Thank you so much to all of Skinny Dippin's fans. It was a worrisome few days as we awaited word of her safety. Your support has meant the world to Tom and I. Please keep the fine people of Eastern NC in your thoughts as they clean up, recover, and rebuild from Hurricane Irene. This was one for the record books. Thank you Mother Nature for allowing Irene to weaken before she got here.
More FUN ADVENTURES to come!!
Fair winds and calm seas.....
