Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

We evacuated home and yacht to Greenville, SC. Parts of st Augustine took a very hard hit from storm surge. We have no reports yet our boats and properties but it appears that it's not too bad.

Will be interesting to see how the city moorings faired.

Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

We are in Oak Hill (just south of New Smyrna Beach). Trees down. Shingles all over the yard, but nothing else. Same story more or less for the rest of the neighborhood.
The boat is in Brunswick GA. Around 5pm spoke to the the marina office - the statement at that time was that they did brilliantly. Storm reached just as the tide started turning (around 2pm) from high - sounds like surge and tide counteracted each other such that they didn't report any damage at that time to boats or the marina.

I think we got lucky...

Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

Unsure of other marinas up the San Sebastian in St Aug but I've heard through a live-aboard there that Hidden Harbor made it through without severe damage.

Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

I saw a few YouTube reports of a guy on his what looked to be 22 footer and all the boats were doing okay from what I saw. Crazy thing is not many people dropped canvas in the video and he reported he was the only one aboard or in his marina.

Boat Ashore in St. Augustine

Some fairly close cruising friends we met in Panama, Barb and Stew Hart, had their boat, La Luna, drag ashore in St. Augustine at 29 52' 51.04"N, 081 18' 23.31"W. They are exploring options for refloating her, including kedging it back to water while pumping large volumes of water under the hull. The boat suffered only minor damage, a broken stanchion.

Has anyone tried this? Any tips for success?

La Luna is circled in red in the photo I am attempting to link here:

This is a no brainer.
2 sail boats the same size beached at the end of a road.

Get together and hire a crane to refloat them.

Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

Yep, all those boats are pretty stuck.

There has been much drama on the local Facebook group regarding hiring a joint salvage effort. Seems like something the insurance company would take care of. Most seem to be fully insured.

Quotes for getting back afloat seem to be about $150 per foot! Plus a share of the barges travel costs.

A endeavour cat is in worse shape as their draft is less than the surge height so they are totally ashore at all tides in a hard to access location.

Additionally the county has several derelict vessels they need to remove.

Maybe someone has one of those big Russian sky hooks around.

Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

Yes, but if the boats are ok there for a week or 2 the prices will come down.

We found this after Hurricane Gonzalo. Its was $5,000 to move a boat. 2 weeks later it was $1 000.

If you are out of wave action and not much tide, is it possible just to tell the sharks to F off for 2 weeks?

Re: Hurricane Matthew Check-in Thread

Mark and BoatGuy,

Thanks for the inputs. I haven't heard from Barb in a couple of days so don't know exactly what progress they have made. I'll send them a link to this thread to evaluate your advice.

John
