Westend/Sopers and Cane Garden Bay.

Any updates on these areas. Very little to be found online.
Thanks!

G - seems nothing coming out of CGB, nor Sopers
No contacts have checked in since the storm
Some public comments report CGB hit hard, with Myett's & Quito's roof's gone - but, no doubt you have seen this also

I am worried about both, with the way the wind clocked around to the west. Surge into Westend could have been huge.

Bridge to Frenchmans Cay is gone. Have not heard from Island Jim or or Doc Howard who holed up in Howards place north side of Sopers. One report that 80% of CGB gone. Quito's no longer exist. Myetts roof gone. All of White Bay except Hendos and part of Soggy gone. Carrot Bay flooded. All boats sheltered in Paraquita in a big pile in the mangroves. Moorings dock in RT a total desaster. Village Cay Marina the same. Large cat up sideways on the TMM docks.

One piece of good news VHF radio report that Nick and Monica and the staff at Leverick are OK. Not so for the docks and most buildings. Not much else out of VG other than lost roofs.

Reports from most areas are coming in, sadly none of them good. Not a word from Sopers. Hope no news is good news but afraid it's the opposite.

Does anyone have contact with Visar people?
I can't get in touch with the one fellow there that I know

Perhaps, if they have time - they can give some insight

Just saw a report on Sopers from Lynn Keneway: All boats have sunk (nichole, branson, pajamas, music, kendall) people are looting harbor market and marine store. Pussers gone. Indigo house looks ok. Inspirado house gone. Blades house roof gone. Sharns travel lift down. All boats on the hard have been damaged knocked over or on top of buildings. Ottertude catamaran is on top of Betito's building.

There is nothing left on JVD. Gertrude medivac'ed out. Peter Sean and Kendall are in a tender heading to JVD to rescue some.

George, I saw a post that referenced Soper's.. Ottertude was upside down, Pussers destroyed, market destroyed..and more.. can't verify, but doesn't sound good.

That's sad, the owner of Ottertude is the person reported to have bailed Voyage out financially. I guess if Pussers is gone all the buildings from the shipyard to the market are probably gone. Hope that the main dive shop for Bluewater Divers survived. Sounds like the Sopers location is gone. Keith and his brother built a nice business. I just don't see how many can recover from this. I fear my home away from home will never be the same.
