I took a beating in wind storm

We had a pretty bad wind storm yesterday we had gusts up to 70 MPG and wind waves around five to six feet. They crashed inside of my cockpit. Then a broke down river break loose and it came up and smack the starboard Stern corner and ripped off the rub rail, with some fiberglass damage. The gazebo is no longer covered and the shed lost some of its floatation.

The picture of the green POS is the one that broke free from its mooring and slammed into my boat, then it went up on the rocks. In one of the pictures you will notice a sail boat in the background with a nice cover on it shoved up under the roof of the marina that is above us....

We received wind warnings, but when the storm hit, I was on a plane south to visit grandkids. I have a great friend and neighbor that did his best to fend off other boats. Knowing the storm was coming I did double tied the boat. I guess this will be my first "retirement project!"

I just wished others would have taken precautions.......

Damn, Tom. That really sucks. We got the storm after it left PDX but our winds topped out around 50mph. I haven't been down to the boat this a.m. to check on it but I'm headed that way in a bit.


I'd claim salvage rights on that green roofed house and demand they pay you to get it back, plus for the damage to your boat.

Tom, sorry for your damage. I'm on the boat myself and it was pretty nasty here on Hayden Island, a neighbor and myself had to recover a couple sailboats that parted lines. You would think that a responsible boat owner would take precautions to secure their own boat. At the very least double up on mooring lines.
Hope your able to expedite repairs soon, and the cost dosent have to come out of your pocket.
Enjoy the Holidays,

New devlopment. The boat that hit our (the one covered in green moss) was reflected after midnight last night. It wouldn't start so they tied it up at the dock above may and this morning ..........yep it sank to the bottom of the river. It will be my luck the owner has no insurance.

My experience with hurricanes (yeah, we have them down here from time to time) is that more damage is done (in a marina, I mean) by boats breaking loose than from anything else. Ninety-nine people have their boat well secured, but boat #100 is not secured well (and is a POS to boot). So it breaks loose, and careens around hitting other boats, like unto the old-fashioned pinball machines.

Sorry to hear about your damage.

Yea... 70 miles per gallon gusts are real winds of badness

Glad to see you made it with little damage. With no insurance, I am guessing the owner won't help you with repair costs?

Their insurance, your insurance, litigation. In that order. Notify your insurer immediately and if the other party isn't insured they may choose to pay you and then litigate. Here's hoping you have coverage for uninsured boats.

As said above the majority of damage at marinas during storms is wayward boats. That's why some of the better marinas are diligent regarding securing of boats and have provisions allowing them to add security and charge the boat owner.

MPG huh. Well I am a little upset. The winds were howling with waves breaking over my cockpit.

Did the beached Uniflyte re-enter the water on its own, or was pulled off by somebody? My guess is the prop strut pushed through the hull upon grounding - although those boats have a very thick layer of glass on the bottom.

I would hope nobody would pull my boat off the shore after a major storm.

Tom, have you talked with the owner and/or gotten his insurance information? If you've talked with him, what has he had to say?

I imagine the lines on the Uniflight were as moldy and rotten as the gel coat on the fly bridge. Too bad the marina manager doesn't check on his vessels and replace lines and charge the owner as mentioned previously. What happens when there is a winter ice storm???

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the Skipper brave and sure,
five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour,
a three hour tour.

The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
the Minnow would be lost.
The Minnow would be lost.

The ship's aground on the shore of this
uncharted desert isle
with Gilligan,
the Skipper too.
The millionaire and his wife,
the movie star,
the professor and Mary Ann,
here on Gilligan's Isle.

So this is the tale of our castaways,
they're here for a long, long time.
They'll have to make the best of things,
it's an uphill climb.

The first mate and his Skipper too
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable
in their tropic island nest.

No phone, no lights, no motor car
not a single luxury
like Robinson Crusoe,
it's primitive as can be.

So join us here each week my friends,
you're sure to get a smile,
from seven stranded castaways
here on Gilligan's Isle!

If it makes you feel any better, my neighbors lost the canvas to their (near identical) gazebo months ago, in October.

This autumn has been an unexpected bitch of a long storm season.

It sure has. We've been dealing with a particularly serious and difficult to troubleshoot problem with our PNW boat and it's been in and out of the yard since September. I suppose if it had to be out of commission for this long this was the perfect time for it as between work and the weather there have been almost no opportunities to go out anyway. Normally we'd be using our boat every other weekend or so during this period.

I have talked to the insurance company and the owner briefly (before it sank). We will be getting together once I get home.


Just down river about a 1/4 mile they found another boat sunk, with just the bow out of the water. USCG is now involved and have been buzzing the site.


As they were trying to refloat the boat it started hailing hard, then a down pore, then lightning hit the crane busting a few cables........I leave town and........

Help with Repair??

Can anyone recommend a fiberglass/gel coat repair place in the Portland Oregon area?


Meanwhile, the flood waters have receded and all the trash is floating back up river during high tide. Along with this is a diesel sheen from cushions and other trash from the derelict boat that sunk.
