Lots of wind overnight. No water over the bulkhead. Still raining and a bit of wind. Lost power in the marina. All ok here.

Just got from checking boats at HHN...from a quick look around everything looks good, a few jibs shredded, a few boats scratched up from hitting the docks, trees down but not near any boats up in the yard. Spoke with a buddy who stayed aboard last night, he didn't think it even got to high tide. Curious how south made out?

Thanks for the updates, I'm glad it wasn't too bad down there. Hopefully all went well at Shipwright Harbor too.

And yeah, about that boat stranded up on the pilings: All I can think of is "helicopter"! (like in Apocalypse Now when they pick up the boat and drop it)
