Well my cell phone has not rang and that is good news. Though I may not know for sure how the boat did until tomorrow.

Re: Life after Irene

well, my boat was at a dock in wanchese NC, where the eye passed directly over. my friend who was looking after the boat says there was no damage, and it's fine.
kinda hard for me to believe, but hey, guess i might have gotten lucky. my friend in baltimore did fine on his boat too. the media hype got me pretty terrified, but looks like things are ok...

Re: Life after Irene

All appears well on the sassafras river, chesapeake. No storm surge to speak of, just a lot of tropical storm winds

Galesville yacht harbor and pirates cove docks r fine. Lots of debris in the west river. Even tho it wasn't as bad as Isabel, glad we had the boat hauled.

Re: Life after Irene

It's looking that it is going to mostly miss me. I expected this because I did the boat prep and Murphy's Law applies.

Irene isn't even up to my house in NH yet, but the wind and rain have died down. So it looks that it has blown inland more.

Re: Life After Irene

We left our boat in Panama for a couple of weeks and came to Baltimore to experience the earthquake and hurricane. Now we are without mains power running a generator long enough to keep the beer cold, do some email and watch a movie at night.

Feels like we are back on the boat...

I rode it out at anchor in Oyster Bay on Long Island, and my only damage was a parted snubber that chaffed through after she passed by. I had a lot of fetch to the west got a lot of relatively rough waves, but the backup snubber on deck held, and there was no other damage. Sorta exciting there for a few minutes...

Re: Life After Irene

It wasn't hype. This was a serious storm that luckily ended up being not as bad for some of us in the mid-Atlantic as we thought it might be. In any case, you can't say that about N.C. or Vermont.
