Grenada Marine is pleased to report that with 600 anchors in the ground and the same amount of cargo ratchet straps, the (nearly) 90 knot winds produced by Hurricane Emily did no damage whatsoever to the vessels on the hard. Our new cradle system that was designed, engineered and manufactured in-house by a very experienced team is also in effect and we are proud to say it has been accepted by all the insurance companies. Mast racks are also a new addition that became necessary to store the masts some people are now requesting be kept down during the hurricane season.
The two storms that we have experienced have taught us and we have learnt. Our additions have been tested – perhaps not through as great a storm as Ivan, but enough to show us that it is possible to remain safe in severe weather.
