Try as I might, I cannot find a picture that I recall of a freighter (?) or other boat that stranded itself in Simpson Bay near BSV after Luis (?) again....CRS is in full swing...lol

Does anyone remember that picture or event? If so, please share!

Thank you.

Be careful of the toes you step on today for they may be connected to the foot of the person's a$s you have to kiss tomorrow.

That is “Sandy” and it was after Lenny in 1999.

What was the condition of BSV after Lenny? I wasn't staying there at the time, but I think there was significant damage ??

That is a freaking awesome pic! Thank you. And yes, that's the shot I was looking for. Having a person in the pic really helps with scale! wink

Carol...if you enlarge the pic and then open in a new tab you can enlarge again....in the distance BSV is visibly damaged, pool is lifted up and sideways, sand /debris is inside the visible units. I will try to find my pics from back then since I know I have pics of BSV BUT...that was many computers ago. Hopefully I backed them up

The posted pic was in a saved file

No, washed up once. Tag is wrong.

We stayed at Mary's Boon the Spring after Luis. Mark and Carla Cleveland were in the process of cleaning up the destruction that had happened there the previous Fall. They had sustained a lot of damage and were, in fact, in the process of rebuilding their dining room which had been destroyed but they still managed to serve a wonderful breakfast with tables under an awning. Mark shared a cup of coffee with us one morning during our stay and he and my DH were talking about the reconstruction going on. Mark swore to us, given the foundation and rebar he was putting under it, that building would never again be wiped out as it had been in the previous storm.

I thought I remembered walking that beach and seeing the freighter beached in the sand during that trip. and at the same time, I recall some of the damage to other properties, one of which, in retrospect, I thought to have been Beachside Villas with the pool tilted and twisted on end, but in honesty, I wasn't remotely familiar with BSV at that time. As I recall, on that one fateful walk, the destruction was horrendous. We saw buildings destroyed and brought to the ground along with pools damaged and some turned on end. But the ship, I thought, was still the Sandy.

That said, it's all together possible I have gotten my dates and storms and ships confused. There were several storms back in that time frame and some were almost in back to back years or so it seems, in retrospect.


Respectfully,

pat

boucharda--I just have my laptop here and can't figure out how to enlarge the pic. I do remember that there was a lot of damage after Lenny, which was odd, because for most of the island, Lenny was kind of a non-issue, I think..

I could not find the raw pics. I found other saved pics from that time but none of BSV...probably toast with a computer drive

Re: enlarge....(Windows) right click on pic....choose "save picture as"....use "desktop" as destination... click on shortcut for the pic and a picture viewer will open. Easy to enlarge from there (+)

Obviously you can enlarge in the thread but not enough to decently see BSV

No. That, along with quite a few other photos were shared with me many years ago. I can't speak to their origin.

We are here now, one of the ships propellers is still in room 14. Lol. Just kidding, we are seeing this thread and showing the pictures to the staff, it has been hilarious seeing their reactions to these pictures. They were all here and remember that event very vividly.

It was hurricane Lenny in 1999, staff confirmed it today. When it came ashore, it swung around and clipped the #14 unit and destroyed the pool area. We will be erecting a moment in its memory this afternoon, lol!

Foxy,

Thank you for the clarification on the year and like Carol, I didn't realize it was Sandy that took out the pool. I don't know why I thought it was from an earlier storm - the mind is a dangerous thing to lose..........!!


Respectfully,

pat

Anytime, yes when the ship turned, it took out the out side bed room, bathroom and the rest of #14 facing the parking lot. That is crazy, and the gazebo stood during hurricane Irma, but I guess t didn’t have a Sandy bumping up against it lol. As soon as the nap is done the memorial will be erected! All have fun!

We removed it yesterday with a small boat during high tide, LOL. Really not sure how that was accomplished, but we will find out.

Wasn't there a very large ship grounded in Marigot after one of the hurricanes, too? Luis, I believe?
