Re: Hurricane Sandy

NiftyNickers is back on her keel.They righted her yesterday (Friday).The hull has a couple of scratches (repairable) and the rudder is a bit hard to turn,she was partially lying on the skeg and rudder.The radar arch is toast along with thesolar panels and radar.The mast and rigging all seem fine and the cabin altho a mess doesnt seem to be wet or smell of fuel.The stern rail is also toast and our outboard motor on the stern rail needs some attention.She fell on top of 2 jack stands and they are flattened,2 small scratches in the hull where they were.Tough boat!
An older PSC Mariah was swept about 100 yds across the gravel yard by the surge and suffered a couple of scratches and some toe rail damage.
Compared to the devastation surrounding us we fared very well.
