This storm is already a pain in the butt! Was ready to fillet when we were told she was going to hit us. Safed the boat in the shop and boarded up. Got up this morning and Frances had slowed down giving me a full day to work since I had all the hurricane prep done. Set the boat back up and got the forward compartment done as the winds started picking up. Decided to call it a day and make sure everything outside was really prepared. Will finish the fillets next week after hurricane cleanup is done. We'll weather this one (I thank God He's in charge and will watch over us) and hope anybody else in it's path has taken the proper precautions. My only regret is that the boat isn't done. We're supposed to get 10-20" of rain and I could probably use it to get to work!
