Dinghy's has a link to a gofundme page.

http://dinghysbeachbarandgrill.com/

The description fits the photos and first-hand accounts I've seen. Boats on the beach or sunk. Lots of damage to buildings and infrastructure. The most recent post on the Facebook group What's Going On St. Thomas October 15 mentioned no WAPA or bucket trucks on island - "Ask us in January."

"The two pavilions on the beach have been completely destroyed by boats that had washed ashore. These buildings need to be demolished and the boats need to be removed, along with trees and other debris."

Cheers, RickG

Aleta_skipper, I spoke with Capt. Jay this morning. He is still working to get a crane into Independent Boat Yard to right the boats. Contractors are ready to fix boats once they are back in their stands.

Jay filled me in on the day to day progress on the ground. It sounds like a lot of positive activity and "more winning" every day.

Cheers, RickG
