“So we were supposed to leave Friday and we didn’t think we could make the ferry on Friday because of the pending storm,” said Taylor.
The island ferries aren’t the only boats that could be impacted by the hurricane. Many people on the Cape are heading down to marinas to check on their own boats.
“We’ll get away from those cleats we’ll tie it to the pilings,” Captain Floyd Leach said.

“Very dangerous, could be very dangerous, but we’d rather be up here in the north to where we think it’s going to minimize,” said Captain Leach.
