Went up to check on the boat. So far, so good. It appears the docks have sunk a couple of inches at the finger ends, probably because the shore side ice is melting faster. Took some pictures of our docks and some of the cleanup process. Check them out at:

Cleanup at Two Branch Marina........ Dianne Krause, office manager at Two Branch Marina told me today they were applying rock salt to the roofs of the docks that remain standing in an attempt to melt the snow off.

   I also heard that Channel 5 News had a report about the damage and cleanup going on at the marina yesterday evening.

   

It's times like these that make boaters drink !

Marina Damage Story ........ StLtoday had an article in yesterday's on-line edition about the damage at the marinas in St. Charles County.

 Patrolman Lou Amighetti, of the Missouri State Water Patrol  is asking everyone to stay away from the marinas in our area.  All have damage.......the weight of the snow on the roofs of the docks is causing docks to sink and collapse.   Stay off the docks !   Stay away from the Marinas.  Traffic on the water is limited to essential personal only ! 

Thanks,

Lou Amighetti

River Bill,
Here is a link to some shots of Yacht Club Saint Louis that I have taken Saturday, 12-02-2006. Looks like the Marina faired pretty well. Wish I could say the same for all our neighboring marinas, but wanted to share these photos so that fellow boaters who may be out of the area or unable to check on their boats will have some heads up.
Thanks, Rick

Port Charles...Closed.......  

  

Bill,

Since so many of our customers are loyal "River Bill" followers I was hoping that you might be able to post this message. Thanks so much!

At this time Port Charles Harbor is currently closed for saftey reasons. We faired the winter storm better than some of the other marinas, but we lost dock 6. Our crew has been working since 3:00 am Friday morning to secure and maintain the rest of the docks. Some of the docks are extremely unstable. Electric was restored to Dock 6 yesterday afternoon, and our crew has been removing the roof structure from the boats.
I will be posting some pictures on www.portcharlesharbor.com in a few days. 

Warmer days are ahead!!

Posted some pictures I took of the damage to docks and boats at Woodland Marina from last night's ice storm. So far our boat is still floating although the docks are listing about 15 degrees towards the open harbor. My guess is that at least 40 to 50 boats and docks have been destroyed. These are docks that survived the ice storm about 8 years ago where about 100 boats and docks were lost. Talked to some of the other boat owners while we were there, pretty devastating. Several of the boats that are still actually floating may still be lost because the power is off to the collapsed docks and bilge heaters cannot run so the boats (which are not winterized) will eventually freeze the sea gates and sink. Will head back up there as soon as we can get onto the docks. Right now our row of docks are stable and our power is still on. To see the pictures click on the link below.
