Ironic that people all over the world gravitate to living near the coastline, when there isn't a single coastline that will be there forever (erosion, tsunami, hurricane, rising ocean levels).

Honestly, one of the reasons we've decided to invest in the boat like it was a second home, is its adaptability to changing oceanfront property (assuming we aren't caught in a natural disaster itself). We have friends whose beach property is seriously threatened by erosion alone. A direct hit by a hurricane, not to mentioned tsunami, would wipe out the land itself, not just the house.

I'd heard of this site... thanks for the link. Man's efforts are obviously a temporary thing when Mother Nature has a mind to make it so....
