Guess I am just lucky with staying in water with lengthened spring lines etc. when the marina came apart during Ivan as shown in pix

Anyway getting ready for IDA now, hope it stays small and far to west, but experience says nasty part to NE of track will rack us in the Panhandle. At least we will get storm surge and lots of feeder bands as it heads for New Orleans area.

Got asked one time how I like the Sea Eagle dinghy I bought, love the size, solid bottom to step into from the swim platform and the quick inflation using their 12 volt pump and my accessory 12 volt source ( Truck)

My main and jib halyards raise at lower at the mast. Did you change that so that you can do it in the cockpit? I didn't notice that issue until we stepped the mast yesterday when we launched it.

No my halyards raise and lower at the base of the mast. but the PO had a couple of blocks at the base of the mast so I can run the ends of halyards thru them and tie of on the handrails so I can lower them from the cockpit when I am single handling back to dock under sail. see pix of mast base.
