An outpouring of help Saturday (7/22), including a crane and a forklift, put humpty dumpty back on the wall again.
It will be quite some time before Pleasant Harbor Marina is fully operational, but AYC’s members picked their boats off the hard gravel of the dry storage yard and plopped them back on trailers where they belong.
Dog Year, the Mini 650 of Wendy Larsen and Dave Christensen, was the most damaged, with a big hole and some small ones needing repair. Fortunately, Dave has intimate knowledge of the innards of Dog Years and knows how to fix it. In fact, he’s had to repair damage twice before.
Steve Kusic’s boat had a mangled stern pulpit and a mangled trailer. Bruce Andress now has the boat on one of his trailers and will do the repairs.
All of the boats were put upright shortly after dawn Saturday following the damage a week earlier from blows from opening monsoons. Pleasant Harbor Marina isn’t doing as well. Damages there will take a long time to repair, though the marina reports that water and power have now been restored. They’re referring people to the PHM Facebook page.
