About 1300 or so working doing some electrical
work inside the boat and I start hearing water racing
past the hull
, up to take a look and there was quite a boil on with Oceansize straining at her strbd lines and the dock
lower on the pilings than I had ever seen, looked down again and a starfish went ripping by... apparently lost
it's footing. On walking out to the main dock
I saw that 3 boats had been moved off the first row of fingers nearest the shore and a couple of guys were working to keep a Cal
20's gunnels out of the water as she went over on her side. Joined them on the finger and and shortly the flood started up and it wasn't long before the 20 was floating again. We were already at fairly low tide so there wasn't much danger
of the floats topping the pilings but the way it was ripping back in I was concerned so I quickly put my work away and prepped for at least trying to get away if the floats got too high. At the speed the water was comming in I was skeptical about our chances but I was prepped and went back out onto the docks. Soon the flood stopped. There were some piling hoops torn from bad wood on the fingers but that was about the only damage. As I write this the water has started to pull away again though not as aggressively... time to get back out there.
So it's going in our little corner of the world...
best wishes for all!
