Owners of fishing boats do certain things on the night before a storm makes landfall. Double up lines. Secure everything on the vessel that is loose or that can move. Check everything they have done. Check everything again.

Once the vessel is as secure as one can imagine, check the weather. Look at the clouds. Read the water. And then wait.

As the boat owners wait, they try to stay as calm as possible. Staying calm while adrenaline is building and the barometer drops is a skill one learns. This is the life of the fisherman.
