Sandy's Wake

A glimpse at the carnage left by Storm Sandy along the Toms River. This is a local marina called Shore Point.

Post Sandy

We hauled a few days before the storm's arrival.  In the photo at left you can see what a well hidden small sailing boat hiding along the NJ coast looks like.  The sailboat was lying on Toms River directly west of Seaside Heights NJ, and there was no question that she had to get on the hard (and fast).  She did so thanks to Bill and the crew at deRouville's Boat Shoppe.  In fact she rode out the event without consequence.  Meanwhile Sandy has picked her victims in a decidedly opportunistic fashion.  I will provide details and images when time allows.

We're Back!

It happens that we took a fiairly long holiday from Boat Stuff, to attend to Real Life Stuff.  Real Life Stuff refers to family stuff, and that means things that really count (i.e., non-boat things).  Things are now suffiiciently in hand to allow us to spend a bit of time on the yacht.  Speaking of which, the boat was splashed in mid-June 2012, she did not sink, and we will shortly be reporting on things of significance.
