Snippets of hurricane
Earl from St. MArtin...
couldn't get outside for all of it... but you'll get the picture... The Air X wind generator
survived gusts of 94 MPH... the little white boat by the big wreck at the end is a friends boat... the wreck blew of Witches tit and dragged down onto his boat.... collected three anchors and then ran aground. We went out there this am and his boat didn't have a scratch and was sitting quite happily in the big boats lee for the worst of the storm.
A little note... there were about twenty or thirty boats aground and several destroyed after the storm. Virtually all of them still had sails
generators and crap up or on deck
and were not prepared for this type of weather
. It was sad to see perfectly good boats get thrashed because their owners didn't take a little time and prepare.
Also thew picture of the little yellow boat that could.... When it started getting windy the little yellow boat in the pictures went dragging anchor
off downwind. She dragged until she was out of sight.... later I see her dragging off across the lagoon
being blown downwind as the wind
swung from North to west she dragged across to the far side... then as the wind swung west south west she started back towards her original starting point..... dodged several boats... then as the wind went south she banged up against the boatyard wall.. probably she went a good mile or two on her adventure, but finished up as far as I could tell in one piece and less that a few hundred yards form where she started. Better lucky than good.
