Paulo, which tall ship was in the same port? As I mentioned in a previous post, Picton Castle was in Nova Scotia, roughly 300 miles from New London, CT where the Bounty was. Here is a link with some pictures of a marina in New London after the storm: Hurricane Sandy Leaves New London Shore Pummeled - New London, CT Patch
