Default NE Sandy Check in

Just wondering how everyone made out?

I'm made out fine out on LI and still have power and no property damage. How is everyone else?

If anyone needs help on LI let me know and I'll do whatever I can. I got saw,trucks and genny's.

Wishing the best for everyone else.

Lost power for about 24 hours. The town had plenty of debris in the streets but everything bigger got cleaned up yesterday evening. My yard has tons of leave twigs and small branches that were stripped from trees. Off and on rain is stalling me from cleaning it up.

Haven't been on the ocean yet to see what happened out there.

I went down to my marina and it was a bit messy. A big 35-40ft sporty beached itself right by the ramp. Several sail boats broke loose of their moorings and were pushed aground. Water is super dirty and lots of debris floating around.

So far so good where I am in Bergen County NJ. Didnt lose power but lots of lights flickering. Trees down all around except for me.

I have not been able to get down the shore but will as soon as I can and will try to post some pics.

Default Fire island breach/Moriches Inlet damage

I've heard the County Exc. and State Rep. now say there is a breach between Smiths point and Moriches Inlet, and that Moriches Inlet is now twice as wide as it was 2 days ago... My boat will be ready to explore tomorrow but wondering if anyone has heard or seen either of these first hand ....

Made it through the storm wit no boat or home damage in Branford, CT. We were expecting a lot more damage but it looks like the storm touched ground to the South. A couple marinas flooded and boats came off their stands and ended up on their side, some houses directly on the coast were damaged and many of us are without power; but it is much better than what was forcasted. Hope all made it OK.

couple pics from last night. what a day. went kayaking, got drunk, fell in the water while standing on a dock, but the boats all survived fine. kayaking was too run 5/8" cable off the pullmaster winch on one of the draggers out to a mooring in the center of the harbor so he could pull himself off the dock when the wind switched around. the tide surge was enough for his boat to crash down on the tops of the spiles, so he wanted to stay off them. fun times.
shot of the fuel dock. this was still 2 hours away from high tide

you may notice the ladder gangway we put up to the Retriever in the left hand side of the pic. fell off that at about 9pm but managed to keep the saltwater out of the beer

Out of power in Madison, CT. Boat made it out OK, but I was very nervous last night. Trees down everywhere.

Glad you and the boats made it through the storm. I enjoyed your build thread and it would be sad indeed for all that work to be destroyed.

I pulled out the boat on Friday to prevent storm damage (288 cruisers villa vee) And a tree fell on it... Go figure. No major damage. We put 2 extra jackstands under it just 2 hours before the tree fell. Might of been worse if we didn't have those extra stands.

Here in VA up the Potomac River we didn't get anything close to what many others have experienced. But, I just looked at the webcam at our marina and the water is about one foot above our docks, and high tide isn't quite here yet.

Folks be careful on the water if you venture out.

Experiences down here in North Carolina after many a storm like this prove there is usually a lot of crap in the water. Refrigerators (why always refrigerators and not washing machines I'll never know), dock remnants, timbers, trees/limbs floating around and sometimes just under the water. One storm several years ago (Isabelle maybe?), lots of folks had problems with their outboards cooling systems getting clogged up from all the fine insulation that got into the water.

Be safe and my thoughts are with all you folks up there and hoping your losses are minimal if any.

Refrigerators/freezers, because they are insulated so they float. No one insulates a washing machine or oven or any other appliance.

The videos of Moriches and all the other damage near the water just reminds me that nature just lets or allows us to live/build where WE want, but ultimately, we can't expect it to ever be permanent.

As a Katrina vet I second the thoughts above about being very careful boating right now. In addition to floating objects you will find hidden and submerged things such as boats, rebar, and other very serious hazards.

PS make sure you guys stock up on fix a flat for your cars and boat trailers because for the next 24-30 months nails from the rebuilding effort will be everywhere on the roads. I had 31 flat tires after Katrina.

Pix of those fuel pumps might dissuade me from going back in this year. I haven't made it to Montauk yet, but can imagine that most were under water. Im sure they will say all is fine but....
