Hurricane damage

With luck this will take you to an album of pictures from Morgan Marina NJ USA taken yesterday. The Sandy storm surge blew directly into Raritan Bay and gave us 5-11 ft more water than predicted coincident with Springs. Any boat drawing less than 5ft was floated and pushed inshore. Hound was at the back and was pushed inshore by a press of other boats. Damage is bearable, scratches, guard rail, rigging and teak cap rail.
Boats at the Raritan Bay yacht club were more exposed and many, including the J 30 which I have been racing on, were completely smashed (that particular boat is in two pieces many yards apart and flattened).

Life goes on and I will be fixing her up with a view to cruising sometime in 2013.
