Imagine his embarrasment if, after moving his ailing boat (which he can't afford to keep up) INTO the path of the hurricane, and committing it to complete engine, substructure, and hull damage, the storm falls apart and doesn't hit with enough wallop to provide cover for all this self-induced damage.

One might consider placing the boat's name, Mad Money....out of Montauk, New York in some places on the internet so that it would come up in a search leading to this thread

Isn't that the way they "do it up North"?
Man heard to take his boat and tie it to trees.
Done.

Well once the hurricane shows up he should be able to back off just fine.

Good call.

Let's see, storm coming that may damage boat, so I will wreck it myself.

I believe the job was called "careening". The used pitch torches and scrapers to release the barnacles from the hull. Also repacked the joints. Brave souls to go to sea in something that was sealed up that way.
