Our thanks to Sue Morgan for this update. A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Old Port Cove is located on the western shore of the northern Lake Worth channel, near unlighted daybeacon #7.
> Old Port Cove Marina- The marina remains evacuated. No power, phones or internet. Minor dock damage, some electric pedestal damage. Restaurant is open.
> North Palm Beach Marina-Little to no dock damage. Some minor vessel damage. The marina remains filled with local boaters who evacuated to this Hurricane safe Home. No power yet. No phones or internet.
> New Port Cove Marine Center-Hurricane stored boats were being put in the water today. There is no power, phones or internet. Can not take in any vessels yet. Marina sustained some damage to the floating docks but is easily repaired within a week or so. Several vessels anchored out in Lake Worth broke their moorings and drifted in. Boaters, do not anchor out there in a storm please! With the Lake Worth Inlet across the Intracoastal, it becomes a wash tub. There’s no where for the water to go. Other boats were sunk or were washed up on a private homeowners beach to the north.
