Anyone on the south shore have eyes on water?

High tide in Lindy area looks to be around 11:30 AM and 12:30 tonight.

Please keep us posted on water level.

Cameras are all snowed over!

Thanks!

Tide is definitely higher than normal with three hours to go. I'll keep you posted. I don't think it will get floating boats on the hard high.

Higher here in NEFL as well. This "Bomb" status reminds me of "The Perfect Storm." We got caught in the I-10 road closure near Tallahassee FL and saw ice remaining in trees as late as sundown after a partly sunny day. So, Be Careful Out There.

It's higher than it's been lately but nothing extreme at this point, still a good distance to the top of the dock on my canal.

Heading down that way later to shovel out my Uncle and the check on the boats. All are in different spots. The only one Iím a little concerned about is my kids 18í Bowrider because it is on a trailer on my property which is closest to the bay. The street always floods down there. The other two are stored in different spots further up towards Montauk Highway so Iím sure theyíre fine.

Low tide is higher than normal, but the storm has passed and so has the push. We were lucky, another 100 miles west and we would have had a lot more trouble. Now we have to worry about single digit temperatures. Winter sure came early this year.
Good luck everybody!

Tide was pretty normal at 9:00 tonight. Canal was frozen with snow drifts in spots. Bubblers were working hard.

This is the reason I prefer to dry dock up here - no worries for 4 to 5 months.

I wonder if any docks got destroyed by the ice. Must be getting pretty thick by now.
I see the camera now and bay looks frozen!

Iím up in the air about doing it next year. Lots of people on my canal do it and Iíve never heard of a problem. But they mostly live right there so keeping an eye on things is easy for them.
Itís tempting.
It would be really nice to have it tied up at my own dock, plugged in to my own electric, and be able to go in and out of it through a door in the shrinkwrap whenever I want to. Especially with the satellite TV.
I was able to store my old boat up on the hard on my dock property for the winters. It stayed plugged in and I spent a decent amount of time in it with an electric heater going doing different things during the winters.
Unfortunately this one wonít fit so Iím in a boatyard and itís not as easy to spend time plugged in or do things inside it.

Bitter cold has prevented me from doing anything on the boat. I didn't even have time to put in the shrink wrap door. The batteries are still connected, which probably means they're dead or dying and will need replacement in the spring. I'm having major shoulder surgery in two weeks so doing anything next spring is also doubtful. Out comes the checkbook. Maybe I can convince one of my grandsons to do the work while I supervise? Probably not. Stay warm, all, and stay safe. I'm even going to miss the boat show later this month. I'll be in no shape to travel to Manhattan. Shoot!!!! Hy

Been wondering about you, Hy. I remember you closed last year out with a lot of boat work pending.

I've drained all our RV systems, above ground water systems, and the boat is next. I don't think It's Over, even this far South.

Fellow BE members!!! Can anybody who's already dug out and warmed up, go help Hy, at least recover the batteries and look for loose ends?

I saw a video clip from this morning of Port Jeff looks like they got hit hard from the storm surge not sure about damage but it didn't look got from what I could see. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge?

j-d; Thanks for the offer. Weather is supposed to 'warm' by Monday so I should be able to spend an hour or so at the boat tying up the loose ends. The rest will wait until spring. Worst case scenario will cost a few hundred for batteries. I'd rather pay that than get injured further trying to avoid some minor damage to the boat's systems. Everything is winterized except for the batteries and the linens. So be it. Spring will come. Stay warm, all, and enjoy the winter break at the boat show. My son-in-law and some of his kids are going so they'll be able to bring back info and photos. Hy

Hy, you have a good point. If we can get/keep a boat going for less than a Thou$and it's a cheap fix! Still wish we could do what you need on the batteries...
Oh well, yesterday (after Jags barely beat Bills in Jacksonville) I worked the boat. Near zero effort compared to you guys up North with more complex boats. Dumped and rinsed the Porta Pottie. Drained the water tank for sink and transom shower. The new (technically re-manufactured) MerC "357" RWC engine has six winterizing drain points. Two on Manifolds, Two on Block, One on Power Steering Oil Cooler, One on Circ Pump Intake (drains Pump and inlet hose as well is Cooling Branch in Intake Manifold.

All this because our plans for next 60 days are uncertain but don't include using RV or Boat.

45* this morning. Lowest I saw this week at home was about 28*. It was quite a little colder out in the FL Panhandle earlier last week.

I wish you all a Short, Warm, Happy Winter. Miss your trip reports, projects and stories over the winter!

Bruce, beware of Falling Iguanas!

Finally got to the boat this afternoon; trying to finish all the little things (like installing two new medicine cabinets at home) before the surgery next week. I installed the door in the shrinkwrap, got into the engine bay to disconnect the batteries, and set up the two humidity absorbants in the cabin. Now that the door's in, I might be able to get back into the boat's cabin next week to put away the linens, even if the temperature is below freezing. After that, all will sit until May. I'm going to have minimal mobility for at least 6 weeks. No guarantees after that of how I'll be physically. Time will tell. Hy
