A very good place to be during a blow. Did you go up past the chain bridge?

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

Hi Guys,

I'm not quite back on line yet. My house has power (most people still don't), but no internet. I'm working at the local library.

My boat is mostly ok. I am on a mooring. Most boats were hauled for the storm, but a significant amount were still in the water. I prepared on Saturday, most others did the same. The storm hit Monday and the wind was much worse that originally predicted (as most of you know). I tried to get down to the boat Tuesday AM at low tide but the roads were blocked by downed trees, power lines, and other debris. I finally made it to the marina Tuesday afternoon. What a mess. Lots of damaged sails, a number of sunk boats, and at least 6 boats on the beach. My boat appeared to be fine -floating nicely on my mooring. A number of my neighbors boats were gone (including John from Wandering Star). We walked a bit to the boatyard and found one of the boats tied to the dock. Then I saw Wandering Star moored and John aboard. It seems that he dragged east quite a bit, but I'll let him tell the story (if he cares, and ever gets power and internet back).

I got on by boat yesterday afternoon. It turns out that someone must have hit my boat. The starboard lifeline is snapped, a stanchion or two is bent, the rub rail is damaged and the transom is a little beat up too. All in all I got lucky because the rest of the boat is fine and the interior was still nice and dry.

I called my insurance co today and an adjuster will get back to me within 5 days. So, all in all I consider myself lucky. When I get home internet back I'll post some pics.

Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

I stayed in my slip at White Rocks in Pasadena, MD, with doubled lines and as much slack as I could put in them and still keep her between the pilings. After the storm the marina put out an email saying that the docks were under water, but nobody had sunk and no trees had gone down.

I checked on my boat yesterday afternoon and everything was fine. No sign of even rubbing any paint off anywhere. I guess I did it right.

I was checking the NOAA buoy just outside the Key Bridge in Baltimore all during the storm. The largest gust was 50 kt and the average was in the mid-40s at the height of the storm. Watched the wind come around from the NE to NNE to N to NNW, etc. all the way to S. The whole event really demonstrated the difference between being on the "survivable" side of a storm vs. the other. The center of the storm passed within 60-70 miles of Baltimore, yet we got nil compared to Jersey.

JAschrumpf,

I saw mid fourties for almost 4 hours at MYC with a few gusts well in the 60s. HIghest one was 68, Glad you boat came through well. We saw 4 furlers let go over at your marina during the storm.

Sound of th e sails flapping in the wind were like cannon shots.

Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

Barry L....good to here you came through with minimal damage. Northport...Mount siani...Port Jefferson are some of our favorite places to visit. Glad to hear Wandering Star is ok also. You guys definately got thw surge along with the wind which made a huge difference.

Dave

Wow. I guess the bridge blocked the wind a bit, considering its direction.

If I didn't know there was a storm I wouldn't have been able to tell from my boat. The cover for my compass blew into the stern and my flag got pushed all the down my backstay. That was it. I was one of the lucky ones.
