Re: Will Hurricane Sandy Affect You?

I visited my boat this afternoon at the Shorepoint Marina in Bayville on Tom's River this afternoon. I've attached some pictures. The boat tied down with straps is mine. Notice the pile of boats stacked up against mine! Fortunately they are actually pressing against the straps and not so much the hull. I don't see any damage. Notice the Hunter 27 sitting perfectly upright, no stands, lightly touching a power boat that is lying on the ground behind it!

I don't think this was storm surge, I think it more of just a very high tide. All of the boats crashed together appear to have no damage. It looks like they were gently placed against one another and then the water drained away. Note that many of these boats have actually moved hundreds of feet from where they originally were.
