Rockland Harbor Storm Damage

The Miss Patti above broke from her mooring and ended up ashore at the North End. She was able to get off the beach at high tide. Damage was severe to her forefoot and forward keel. She was probably taking on water but didn't really drain much after her haulout.

The seiner below faired much worse. She came ashore on the rocks by the Marine Colloids plant. Heavy seas and surf battered her mercilessly well into the morning hours. Winds didn't abate until about 0300. Vessel appears to be a total loss.

The wooden double-cabin cruiser below didn't break loose from her mooring but she took on plenty of water, probably from a sprumg plank in her bottom. The Journey's End crew towed her into the slipway.
