So, are you guys prepared for Earl?  I know it's a sub, but the seals on these things aren't as great as they used to be... plus the not-so-watertight doors installed in the torpedo rooms.

I am pretty sure we dodged this one. Weather report for tomorrow is sunny and breezy. The tides are expected to be a bit higher than normal tho.

Nothing like Isabel in 2003 which flooded the first level of the aquarium. Torsk rode that one out without much problem. The lines were slacked to give her room to float but she did fine.
