Astoria OR storm

Here is a picture of the drydock where my boat is stored. Scary part is that the article that accompanies this photo in the Daily Astorian says,

A pair of sailboats in dry dock at the Port of Astoria boat basin were among several boats laying on their sides Tuesday, after succumbing to strong winds. SUE CODY  The Daily Astorian

I hope mine wasn't one of those several boats. Well my best estimate is that the person who snapped this photo was within 50' of where my boat is stored. I've made calls but I still haven't heard from the marina on the status of my boat.

For those of you who don't know I live in CA about 500 or 600 miles away. We are slowly working our way down the coast to Mexico from where we bought the boat in Canada.

If anyone lives in Astoria -- and there life is not in a tragedy -- and they have time to swing by the dock please let me know. The HR in the photo belongs to the guy that I hired to look after my boat. Worse case scenario -- Its insured but man would that suck.

Even though I live here in Oregon, I am a little too far away from Astoria to stop in and take a look. I would certainly do so if I lived within an hour or so of there. I hope yours is alright, upright and undamaged.

Thanks,

I hope Ohana is alright too. I should hear from the yard in the next day or two. The town looks like it has been hit hard. My boat is lower on the priority list. Say some prayers for her and the people of Astoria

Ohana's Ok. Rick who watches the boat reported the following --

just got some utilities back.
your boat is upright and, outwardly, looks just fine. astoria is still without power
and the boatyard is semi flooded. winds were clocked at 142 knots with well over 90
sustained for eight hours or so sunday night and again monday afternoon. the cr bouy
recorded a 70 foot wave and then disappeared.

I hope everyone in Oregon is OK.

BTW the HR in the picture belongs to Rick.

Charlie....I'm a fellow Sailer in Gresham, Or., New to this forum. Is your boat OK? You didn't say anything about your boat....and Prayers from Gresham to all who are dealing with the after math of the storm.

With winds at 142 knots, I'd be grateful if nobody was killed. That's serious stuff.

142 knot winds? so now that you guys are in a hurricane zone I guess your insurance rates will be going up soon.

God was with you,
Hmm, where was God for the boat owners who got severe damage to their vessels?

Missing in action?

Lets not get started! OK

No religious statements!

And, no anti-religious statements!
