I think I would untie my boat and get it the h3ll out of there... riding out the chop would be a lot better than watching her get beat to bits....

Moment you untied you'd be smashes against the piling. You're stuck.

The wife is video-taping versus putting fenders out watching the boats get inches away from eachother.

No, I wish. The guy's wife was videotaping. You heard her tell him it was hitting the piling but you could tell she wasn't doing anything to help :)

A fender! A fender! My kingdom for a fender!

At 0.15 seconds as the camera pans right, there is a boat that looks like a sister to my 3488. Video appears to be shot here in NJ somewhere. Every now and then mother nature just needs to remind us who is boss.

Safe and Happy Boating!

Utube heading has Long Beach Island,NJ and the Carver has Little Egg Harbor,NJ on the transom.

I guess I'm lucky with just having floating debris that won't leave around my boat :D

Fenders and snubbers would be a great thing here. Those cleats are going to be stress tested to be sure.
Makes for some interesting mooring lessons.

Maybe it doesn't happen many times a year but I would not moor in that marina for anything.

I'm pretty sure I could get that boat out of there with less damage than it's received.. engines in gear, and cut the damn lines... :o

The Port side was getting hammered by the other boat and pilings....

(Of course I cannot tell how much maneuver room the boat has forward)

Look at the video again guys.....is that a young girl on the bow of the boat trying to grab a line??? She's right by the fenders on the bow and looks to be hanging on for dear life.

If you were going to pull it out of there you would for sure only get one shot at it full ahead...looked to me like full ahead wasn't an option...really not seeing fenders doing them much good against the poles either.

This video made me actually pretty happy. I live on a small lake, and when we get lots of wind its always 3-4' chop. 3-4' on the big lakes are nothing, but when its chop and its that far apart and random, it's awful. Fine for driving slowly in, but if you get aligned with the troughs there's some pretty violent rocking on the 28'.

Looks like even the 30's have the same issue in those conditions :)

This is another problem from the previous administration.

The evile George Bush weather-control machine that aimed Katrina at New Orleans, that was finally toggled from global warming to cooling, is still set for waves on.

This problem was inherited.

I would have a hard time getting onto that vessel with the waves churning like that. There is a point when it is too late and you have to hope for the best. We have insurance and I value my life and limbs.

Actually, unless things got much worse, there is no damage evident so far, and a very good chance there won't be. As opposed to trying to get the boat out of that slip in conditions that bad where if you did not gouge the entire port side getting out it looks like you'd have a hard time making a right turn and avoiding the slips across the fairway. Too late imo. We don't have the tides that NJ has, but boats in our marina (mine included) have ridden out several hurrincanes without damage in conditions similar to those. (Well, maybe not quite as bad, but we have a 2 mile reach across open water if the wind is S.W.)
