Hurricane Sandy Pictures

Here are some pictures of my boat among others before and after the 12 foot surge we saw in City Island.

The boats floated right off the jack stands...

I hope others fared better.

As far as my boat, I'm still wondering the extent of the damage damage. I'm optimistic, but I guess I won't know till we get a crane in there.

It's the Bristol 35.5 under the wood hull, leaning onto the Pearson.

My boat looks like it's being supported by the two starboard shrouds. I'm sure that's putting considerable pressure on the rig...

I'm also hoping the keel is did not get too beat up.

Re: Hurricane Sandy Pictures

As a veteran of many hurricanes in Florida, you never get used to seeing this kind of carnage! Our prayers to all who have gone through this storm!

True, always painful to look at, and hurricane Sandy was "only" a Cat 1. Imagine how it would have looked if she had come ashore as a Cat 5!

Shamrock, those images are downright painful to look at
Really hope any damage to your boat is only minimal.

Sad to see all those boats healing over on their sides

Re: Hurricane Sandy Pictures

I'm sorry, Shamrock.

Remember that Sandy was not a Cat I hurricane when it hit the Northeast. If so, it would have been smaller, and it would have weakened upon hitting the colder coastal waters inside the Gulf Stream. Instead, this was a powerful, extratropical storm that did not slow down as it pushed a broad front of surging water from Cape May to Nantucket - several hundred miles across - and rammed it down Long Island Sound, crammed it into New York Harbor, and squeezed it into the salt water marshes of New Jersey. Or something like that. I'm no expert, but you get the idea.

Re: Hurricane Sandy Pictures

That Bristol 35.5 is a tough, well built boat. I used to have one. Hope she fared well.

Good luck.

Very sad.
I notice that the stands were not chained together?

Chains don't do a whole lot of good when the boats float off of the stands
