While Gordon was still churning in the Gulf, the storm managed to lure quite a few people to South Mississippi harbors from those just learning the ropes to seasoned sailors and even the leader of the famous Cajun Navy. He headed up the Cajun Navy, a band of regional citizens who commandeered their own boats to help Harvey flood victims make it to safety last year, rescuing more than one hundred people and 50 animals. Captain Ronnie Daniels said, “This past weekend we talked about that. There were a lot of pictures going back and forth and reminiscing. That was something we were very blessed to be able to go and do. They need help. We’ve been through it before so we loaded up and headed that way.” On this day, Captain Ronnie Daniels is at the helm once again, but back here at home in South Mississippi. A seasoned charter boat captain and star of the TV show ‘Fishermen’s Guide,’ Captain Ronnie Daniels had moved his boat from the Pass Christian Harbor long before the first bands of Gordon hit the Coast. “I’ve got mine in an open field, away from trees, and power lines. If you don’t have an open field, the side of your house is fine, but a good tip to do is lower the jack on your trailer, let the front end of your boat fill up with water that way there’s enough weight there where the winds aren’t going to push it around and cause damage to anything else.” Rick Adam was also teaching the ropes as he helped his two grandsons and son-in-law Steve Dewitt move their boat out of the Pass Harbor Tuesday morning. “He teaches sailing lessons to our kids and then also whenever we’ve got to get out and get ready for a hurricane. He helps us make sure everything is secure and proper,” said Dewitt. For those who were not able to move their boats from the harbor in time, the storm surge could pose quite a problem. “The worst thing we can do is be complacent and say it’s not going to hit here, it’s not going to be as bad,” said Captain Ronnie.   [READ MORE]
