Here's my normally bathtubby west coast playground exposed to 30knot gales :/ My poor kayak stayed firmly attached to the van today.. can't say I didn't try to get out.. I was watching someone in a small tender trying to enter their sailboat that was out on mooring. It didn't end well, they ended up jumping back into the dinghy after totally failing to board and got a huge wave over the beam of their dinghy. That killed their little outboard for some reason, so they put on the oars and headed back to the marina dock.
