- Hello Iain,
You might get additional responses to this question on the LongIsland Sailnet list. There are lots of people there from CT as well as LongIsland (LongIsand NY, not Long Island in Boston Harbor).
I am personally in a Hurricane Hole, New Bedford Harbor which has Hurricane gates that close when wind and tides reach a certain point (around 50 kts of wind).
If my memory serves me correct, based on prior discussion in LI Forum, there are several other Hurricane Holes along the CT shores (rivers, etc.) .
As someone else already mentioned, BoatUS allows a certain amount to haul the boat if the weather prediction calls for the hurricane path to pass through your slip / mooring area.
We had a wind shear last summer (in Fairhaven, MA) that drove some of the moored boats (with sub standard mooring anchors) onto the docks and into some of the power boats. The only near sinking we had was a guy who, against the marine owners advice, secured his slip fenders with large eye bolts instead of bolting to the wooden dock frame. (The eye bolt gouged a hole in the hole near the water line, then as the power boat listed, it took on more water with the obvious results. Quick action by the Marina owner kept the boat from sinking at the dock!

I'm new to the area, and am presently in a marina on the south shore of Connecticut - (Think - Madison,Clinton,Westbrook,Old Saybrook)
Can anyone comment on "how bad it gets" here in the New England region?
How's my boat going to fare in the Marina?
