Yeah, it is going to take a lot to recover. Having seen huge damage in Vermont after Irene, a number of businesses there just never recovered and are no more. I think a lot will depend on insurance coming through, if someone has it.

Any word on the Willy T? If Bomba's made it I'm hoping the WT did also. There has to be something left as inspiration to rebuild. I heard Foxy is still on for his visit/performance at the Foxy's in Maryland. I can't imagine that's true? I'll be donating time and/or money even if I can only swing $50 so looking forward to info on where efforts can be made.

If you consider the many piece of scrap wood and pantys scattered all over Cappoons Bay I suppose you could say, in a manner of speaking, that Bombas still exist. In kit form.

I'm afraid Bomba was making a funny. There's no way the Shack is still standing.
On Facebook - "Where the Coconuts Grow" looks to have someone on island posting, and "Windtraveler", who is currently in Chicago, but lives on a sailboat in Tortola and partially owns Aristocat is also posting updates.
Captain Fatty Goodlander is also regularly posting on FB, and has a big following of island friends that will be getting updates.

In the video of the Carrot Bay road the gal filming says ..."over there was <some-word-I-cant-understand> Bomba Shack" ...... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1922822811318744/permalink/1931165850484440/

I had my doubts about the Bomba story but I guess at this point I'm desperate for any "good" news. I figured if there was one 2x4 with a piece of plywood attached then you could say Bomba's officially survived. I guess you could also say he expanded all over the BVI.

Saw a picture on facebook, that Quitos Gazebo is still there. Damaged, but not gone.

Bomba's did not make it. Saw the picture this morning of CGB, and Quito's was still there, looks like some roof damage & the deck is gone.
