First thing in the morning, I headed down to Harbour North to check out how high the water was. Boy was I surprised!

The pictures in the left column were taken about an hour after the high point of the flood. The pictures in the right column were taken over the next few days when the tide was back to normal. This gives you a point of reference to see how high the water was.

Before I could even get into the parking lot, I was greeted by water. As you can see, this was the entrance to the marina, completely flooded.

Here's the office.

Here's another shot of the entrance.

Here I returned with my bathing suit and flip-flops, and wandered into the water.

Here I'm walking toward the office.

This boat was floating around the marina, it had been on land, on blocks. It was rescued and tied to the deck on the office. And there it still sat after the water receded.

Here you can see the bath house and the electrical panel. Good thing the electricity was out anyway.

All the boats on stands had their bilge pumps going nuts trying to keep up with the water coming inside through the drain plug.

The boat on the trailer looks like it's floating!

There's Bryan after rescuing a small Boston Whaler that was floating away. We confiscated it and used it to cruise around taking the rest of these pictures.

Bryan picked me up at the office, and we set off.

There's Paul sitting on the office steps.

This is looking down the row of boats on blocks.

Here are the docks.

Some of the boats on A Dock were tied a little too tight.

Here's the view of where the main dock should be.

I'm guessing these guys wished they hadn't parked there the night before.

Well, one truck disappeared.

Here's Jim and Jenaire's boat (their homepage). They could have popped it in reverse and drove right off the stands, saving the re-launching charge!

Here's the shop and a few more underwater vehicles.

Poor Corvette.

Here's the road between the shop and the Hi-N-Dri.

More shots of that area.

This was inside the Hi-N-Dri.

For some reason these no parking signs crack me up during floods.

Fortunately the forklifts survived the flood just fine.

Here's the front of the Hi-N-Dri.

Here's the front of shop, and part of the cleanup effort that followed.

The backhoe survived. The excavator was already dead.

Nice boats floating by the dumpster.

The bilge pumps in the boats on the service racks were busy here too.

Looks like Roy moved his car just in time.

There's my Chris Craft safe and sound on the top rack.

Notice the small boat is currently facing out toward the water. You'll see why I say that in a moment.

There's my new boat safe and sound up top.

Here's Roy's car the next day.

More pictures of the boats on racks.

Here you can see that little boat has floated off the rack and is pointing the other direction. Someone needs to rescue it!

The floating docks had floated so high that lines needed to be cut to release the tension. The docks had the side effect of corralling the floating boats so they stay in the marina, and didn't float out into the river.

Here's the back of the shop.

Here's a view of the docks.

Here's D Dock.

I'm guessing that trailer didn't do too well.

More pictures from the water.

There's Jim and Jenaire's boat again.

The Yacht Club building was finally truly a waterfront bar!

Here's George keeping an eye on his boat.

This was taken between C and D Docks.

Another shot of the A-frame.

This is the entrance to the fuel dock.

Here's C Dock.

Here's the fuel dock.

Nice ice chest floating by on the left.

I don't think any gas was being pumped this day...

At the peak of the flood, I believe the gas pumps were completely submerged.

Another shot of the fuel dock.

More shots of the docks.

More docks...

My boat is normally in the slip next to Squeegee.

I'm glad I took it out and put it on the top rack, but Squeegee did just fine.

Once more picture of the Schivanes' boat.

Someone did rescue that little boat after all!

Head back to the main Isabel page to see what else I found!
