We Survived Sandy and the Nor'easter !
With some flooding and minor damage (for the most part) Cove and Rex have weathered the storms. We were very lucky Sandy moved through quickly and the tidal surge was less than expected. It actually cresting one hour before high tide was scheduled, and the high water mark in the Cove shop exceeded the Dec.' 92 storm by only 12". At the height of the storm we had over 4000 hits on our fuel dock web cam !
A big THANKS to all who came early to secure their boats, and to all that helped with other's boats. We really have an incredible community of boaters at both marinas.
Now we focus on racing old man winter, hauling and blocking, winterizing and wrapping !
Temperatures are now low enough where you need to be concerned about winterizing your boat systems ! The promise of warm weather this weekend gives you the perfect opportunity to complete your winterizing.
Some systems to drain and winterize with "pink stuff " (non-toxic propylene glycol antifreeze) are:
Toilets & holding tank
Freshwater tanks and accumulator tank
All pumps, hoses & external showers
Ice Maker and hoses
Refrigeration and air-conditioning condensers
Bait well, wash down pumps and hoses
Shower sumps and drain hoses
Bilge pumps and hoses
