The storm tactic chosen here was to position the boats facing the
expected easterly winds, with as much space and as long lines as
possible. Calypso is already in position and Three Star is being
turned in her slip.

Beware, the fullsize panorama is 3.5 Megabytes.
I've also produced an animation of the storm on the Magothy.
This Old Boat
by Don Casey
Subtitled "turn a rundown fiberglass boat into a
first-class yacht on a shoestring budget," this book is the best
introduction I know boat maintenance for the new or prospective owner
of a "modern classic" sailboat. Starting with guidelines
for selecting a boat, Casey proceeds to fiberglass repairs, cabin and
deckwork, spars and rigging, boat equipment, woodwork, electrical,
plumbing, refrigeration, painting, canvas work and sails. All of this
is described in clear, simple terms perfect for the inexperienced.
This is the book that taught me fiberglass work. But don't let it
fool you; this book is appropriate for experienced boatowners, too.
I still refer to it.
