Re: Will Hurricane Sandy Affect You?

reports of considerable damage at some marinas. It will take some time to assess the full extent. No sense in calling and swamping already busy marina offices and dock crews. Use sites like this one or squidd.io to report status you have seen first hand or upload images.

Re: Will Hurricane Sandy Affect You?

Just received text from club member reporting at 10:45 from elevated foot bridge looking down at Croton Yacht Club. "Many boats floated out of the yard" many missing. More info in the am.

To get them through the gravel you need to pound on top with a sledge hammer while turning them. Once you get past the layer of gravel they go in much easier. Two of mine were in gravel this time, but they went in 3 feet.

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.

Gary - I had a sledge hammer and was pounding at the same time I rotated them with a 2' rebar through the loop. It wasn't enough to get them to engage. If I had a shovel I would have tried to dig through the gravel, but I ran out of light and had to head in. The boat came out fine, so no regrets. Next week I'll step the mast, which makes it virtually impossible to blow the boat over.

It all depends on what your contract says. Virtually all of them have disclaimers relieving them from liability. You'd better check your contract carefully, because many of them also have wording assigning liability to you for damage your boat causes to the marina. In other words, if you boat was pushed into their sales office and destroyed it, they could come after you for the damage. But that's what insurance is for, assuming you have it.

PS - Welcome to Sailnet! My condolences for any damage to your boat.

Re: Will Hurricane Sandy Affect You?

If you parked you car in a parking lot next to the ocean and a big storm came in and damaged your boat, should the parking lot pay? I am not a lawyer, but I think your insurance should be the one to pay unless there are other facts not in evidence here.
