Looks like a few boats dragged in the mooring field at hartges west river md. One boat is aground and 2 others are hitting each other. Going to row over and put some fenders on them in a few

Re: Hurricane Irene

They have made a big deal out of it here though it is a rather weak one.

There was so little to film they had to make a big deal out of the "potentially life threatening" 30' (?) sail boat that floated into a dock and a huge fishing boat.

Don't get me wrong though. It was a storm and it did cause a lot of people grief, but the amount of hype................

I wouldn't want to be identified either... 6 to 8 foot seas with gusts of 45 are pretty much usual conditions outside the Gate on a blustery day. I wouldn't want to be jaunting out in it but having to be rescued??

Glad the cat was ok ; -)

Any word on the storm surge in or around Bristol RI? Had it pretty rough on the Outer Banks first boat still floating after a 6' storm surge. Worried about the second one on the hard in Bristol.

Re: Hurricane Irene

No word on the surge, but I suspect you saw the worst of it on the OBX. Our surge in VA was minor compared to OBX... I'd expect there to be only a few feet north of the Chesapeake.. nothing to worry about.

Re: Hurricane Irene

Al and I are ok, and our boat, Journey is also. Had poor internet most of the day and can only do one task at a time and that takes forever, but have started uploading a series of vids taken during the storm. You can find them at
sv-journey.blogspot.com
look in the blog page, I'll have more as my slow connection allows.
We rode it out on the hard in Oriental, NC.

I'm headed down there this AM. Our boat is on the hard at Bristol Marine. If you send details, I'll look for your boat and send a report.

That is very nice of you to offer. Our Niagara 35' named " Psyche" is located in the Bristol Marine yard at the back up against the fence and down closest to the water I believe. She is white with a red bootstrap and black bottom paint.

Don't go out of your way and thank you for the offer.

It looks like the surge plus waves went onto the causeway, but OK this AM. Psyche looked fine. A large sailboat that looked like an Oyster went over in the yard knocking over a Bene first next to it and snapping its mast. The Bene is leaning against the boat next to it but looks to have only done cosmetic damage. Otherwise, no apparent damage to boats on the hard. Three boats went onto the rocks. Two had just been pulled off as I arrived. The third looked to have sunk off the condos at the north end of the harbor. A couple of boats will need new gennies, but, considering the number of boats in the harbor, not too bad. Condolences to those who sustained damage.

Re: Hurricane Irene

Unfortunately, as I expected, marinas and boaters were not prepared on Lake Champlain (NY and VT). Lots of sunk boats and dismated ones, many major damages to boats, marinas, docks, etc. Some marinas like Monty's Bay were fully exposed and boats on moorings and docks went loose and ended up on shore. Plattsburgh has experimented serious losses as well, while Vermont seems to have less dammages.

Re: Hurricane Irene

Damage here in Bofort was minimal. Boats on the beach of course. Couple of sinkings, all at the ragtag anchorage at Town Creek. Power came back last night. Buddy of mine is going in business fixing generators.
