Andreas

One way is to get an account at a photo hosting site like photobuckt.com. Load the pics to your account, once loaded the site will provide you with a url that you can use to "link" the pics here(or anywhere else on the net) Basically copy the image's url from photobucket, click on the insert image icon here and paste in the url.

Good to here the boat survived more or less, lets hope the damage remains superficial.

Yes...looks like the boat has a surface rash...that can be fixed. All in all on first glance you got away well all things considering. Glad you pulled through

Re: Floated off the stands

Looked at a boat that was knocked off its stands in Wilma. There was structural damage and clear water damage. The structural damage was repaired, the water damage was evident on the interior wood.

I am having a hard time envisioning the concept of a "soft" landing as the water would have been churning leading to slamming on the hard. Not good.

With an 11' surge, I can't image how tie downs would hold but am sure interested in hearing if they did. Even anchored, once floated it would seem the stands would get washed out.

Re: Floated off the stands

Looks repairable. How did the interior fare?

If I can see correctly, there only looks to be 5 stands? Pretty light, particularly with the nor'easter coming.

is the link to the post storm pics. Also some video on ahnj.com and ahyc.net.
Hard to tell from the pics. That might buff out. I can imagine a "soft" landing, but floating debris and other boats banging around can make the landing the easy part. A pic of my friends boat at AHMH shows a picnic table and a dink under the boat which is on its side, the stb stands under the boat. I also worry about the second high tide and water intrusion.
There's is a sea bright video on Youtube. Houses and buildings were blown over. I've been without power for 8 days, so I can't see the actuals, by Wx cahnnel was calling for 15-20 foot storm surge and 21 foot wave heights. I would have felt better at a mooring, but it was not an option.

What is stunning about the photos of the damaged buildings is the undercutting of the foundations which, in most cases, seem to have been spread footings in sand only a shallow depth below the surface. How anyone could have expected such construction to endure any flooding event escapes me.

Re: Floated off the stands

Looks like it could have been worse....have you been on the boat yet to do a real appraisal of the damage ?
