With severe storms and tornadoes predicted for our area over the weekend, I was at a quandrey as to what to do with my boat. I did not really have any place to take it to store it, that would have been any safer than where it was. I thought about chaining it to a tree, but figured if it did get bad and it was whipping around it would be in worse shape if it were just flying through the air or whatever. So I simply put the plug in, took everything out of it, and filled it up with water about a foot or so. That should add about 4200 lbs to the boat, and at least help to hold it down during a severe storm or tornado. Thankfully we did not have to find out, unlike those poor people to the west of us. Man that is terrible.
