Thanks for sharing!

We we're planning on going down in December as our boat was supposed to be heading that way shortly, but unfortunately due to various unexpected issues she's going to remain in Newport for the winter.

Hopefully we'll be able to get back down soon. Going to list the boat for sale and as soon as a sale happens we can plan our next trip! Anyone in New England looking to buy a 43' Beneteau? ;)

Have to agree with Manpot: things are still very tough. Two of our neighbors have come back within the last few days. Both also have large boats. Reports were uniformly depressing: bad roads, no power, lots of rain and bugs. Finding materials and getting things done is very difficult. Best advice is always Dont come.

Were ignoring it and going down the first week of December. Its tough, but we have to start somewhere. This was not how we planned to spend our retirement and savings. Ive spoken with some neighbors who are throwing in the towel and selling their damaged property. No one is optimistic.

Sailors will be able to enjoy deserted spots. But the nice spots that were developed may now be eyesores. And everyone will need to be self-sufficient. Just refueling will be much more difficult, so better hoist those sails!

Agrimsrud,
Thanks for the update. We just booked one of the cats through CYOA for early February and are looking forward to supporting the island economy a little ....... and the different sailing experience with what we hope are fewer crowds.
