Liberty Landing Marina storm damage

We still don't have power or interwebs at our marina so I writing this on my phone. We took the dink over to Liberty Landing Marina to inspect the damage from the storm and I thought I would post because the park remains closed and I know people can't get in to see their boats.

The docks did not get lifted off the piles so if you were in the water you are probably ok. If you were on the hard your boat is probably not ok. The surge picked up all the boats on stands and put them in a big pile about 200 yards to the west of the boat storage yard.

I understand they were not going to let people back in until they cleaned the place up which looks like it could take days. I will post pictures as soon as I can.

Re: Liberty Landing Marina storm damage

Having lived in NW Florida for so many years you'd think you'd get used to seeing this sort of thing...Good news is you're okay and that's what matters most!

Re: Liberty Landing Marina storm damage

Thatīs really something painfull just by watching the pics

I donīt understand much of that, but regarding hull "health", does it matters how long they stay leaned on one side? I mean, not counting rocks, cement and other stuff putting pressure in a specific point of the hull, and supposing everything came out "less wrong", once they are like that is does it make much diference how long they stay like that, or some hulls just cannot stand it at all?

Re: Liberty Landing Marina storm damage

Depends on the boat, the material, the build quality, what it hits, etc etc. A decent boat and its contents should be able to take some heel....but banging on the ground is something else.

The dodgy thing I see is that the marina doesn't let anyone in until after they've cleaned up.....I hate the word marina, because of all the things (& types) associated with it.

I think not letting people in is a safety thing. They can't have worried owners climbing on the pile and getting hurt. They had a crane on site and were returning the boats to jack stands so they were safe to climb on first.

Re: Liberty Landing Marina storm damage

the marina where my cousin's boat usually rests was damaged heavily--and her boat is missing, even tho she placed it safely into the mangroves . now the search is on for "serenity now", her boat.
was a "morgan area marina", she stated, wherein there was a lot of damage, and no one is allowed inside as yet.
i will post details when i can get them from her--she hasnt power, in somerset, nj..

Re: Liberty Landing Marina storm damage

I visited that place to pick up a fellow crew in 2009. I find those photos very sobering.
