You get some really nasty ones off the Atlantic, don't you?
Yep, pretty much 70 mph winds at least twice a year. We have been very, very lucky. No huricanes have hit since 1954 ? (so I been told, dont remember, heh). But looking over the history, we are way way overdue. Of course, the cause will be man made global warning, even though a surprise huricane in March of 1898 completely wiped out over 100 tall ships at Lewes on the Delaware coast tip, killing many hundreds. The wreckage was still there when I was a kid in the 50's. Since then its finally been removed, heh.
Hmm. Ill have to ponder on that, heh.
Hmm, a gimbal mount mast may be the solution. I built many a gimbal mount drink holders for my boats. Cant spill that precious beer, no matter how high the wave, heh.
Also, you have to admit, the sequoia is a very good climbing tree, heh.
