Weather was supposed to get ugly today so I moved over to mMonument beach where there is better protection As always happens a boat anchored to the side of me pretty close but with wind out of the southeast he was fine this morning i suggested that when winds come in about 10 am from the Northeasti I will be just upwind of him and not able to let any more anchor chain out or be able to add a kellet to my chain (Kellet is a weight you handng on chain to keep the angle low and minimize the chance of dragging)

At any rate he did not want to move even though i again explained my concern We just had a set of squalls come through with heavy wind and at least 40 knot winds During the middle of the blow I called them on vhf again to tell them i really needed wanted to let out more chain.

After the wind and rain they agreed to move

That will allow me to let out more chain and not be so worried

the vhf is going crazy right now with several boats dragging into other boats will post again in a few minutes with pictures of beach party of a few days ago and of the rain and squalls
