Default Attention sailboaters.

This is what not to do during a hurricane.

WAFIs.... When do you ever hear about this happening to a Grand Banks or some other powerboat?

I should have added that their engine didnt work. A friend of mine who works for towboat towed them from one of the local marinas (who kicked them out) to a free dock that Portsmouth has. They were trying to make it to Annapolis when they ran out of time and anchored up off Ocean View and tried to make it. They were liveaboards.
