Default Nor' Easter 2008 Photos

We all prayed for Big Seas......and our prayers have been answered:

Even had the Intracoastal kicking up some chop:

The winds have done some damage and will drop off slightly on Tuesday:

Checkout the photos from the Storm today:

Was not pretty this was a lot worse than expected the main road in Long Beach Island was flooded had to drive down the center.Went over to check the boat on the lift and a few snaps on the cover had blown loose.Docks were under water so I went slow let the boat down and fixed it.In retrospect probably not the brightest thing I have ever done but did not want the cover loose.
Was told that they reported 90 to 100 mph winds on L.B.I so I guess I got lucky would have put it on the trailer Sunday but we usually don't get these this late.Just glad there were not a lot of boats in yet at my marina this could have been really bad

I stopped praying for big seas after Buffalo in 2000. We got black flagged and a chance for a championship faded away.

I hate to say "told ya so" but I am...... Told Ya So!!!! http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...ight=noreaster

This is a picture of my friends boat down in Leonardo in the Nor'easter yesterday... You can't tell from the picture but there is a large bulkhead in the water that is "supposed" to protect the boat from the waves in the bay. If you take a look at where the ropes are tied on the piling you can see how much the water was above normal....

I guess I better take my lunch break and go check on my boat to make sure there isn't any damage.

How'd you like to have this staring you in the face as you head out the inlet.
