FB: BVI Abroad shows several photos of destruction in Paraquita Bay. Moorings boats not too bad at base, but wait for the change of wind direction. Some destruction at Village Cay Marina.

Wow.. that is not good. I have always wondered about having them all tied up like they do - one goes, another goes and eventually I would think it is a domino effect once you get a few loose that is more pulling on the rest.

Hope everyone stays safe.. boats can be replaced.

Just sickening to see that. No doubt far worse images to come. Hope everyone has made it through.

...so I'm guessing its going to be a long time before anyone is chartering in the BVI again if the majority of the fleet has been destroyed?

There are many, many boats in the BVI. Some will have survived to be buffed out. Sunsail/Moorings alone have a very large global inventory and pipeline of new boats. By the time the real season comes around post Thanksgiving there will certainly be boats to charter. No doubt many things will be different.

White Bay and and a few others will be very crowded!

They won't be going to Ivan's because it was destroyed. Not sure how the rest of them fared.

I worry about Anegada... the entire north east eye wall was travelling right through it.

BVIs will take a long long time to recover...

Someone will be nailing and screwing together beach bars pronto. There is just too much cash in the day trade there. Those that need to eat will get open. The $1250 a night hotel rooms the government craves will take a little longer. The likes of Foxy and Bomba will fill any gaps needed to support the thirsty boats in the meantime.

Now to the Moorings even with all the docks underwater the Moorings dinghys seem ready to get back to work as soon as the wind stops. That may have changed with some of the later breeze out of the south...
