Warm and snug in NC?
« on: January 06, 2018, 05:29:21 AM »
Left my SR down in New Bern NC under the condo.
Nice warm and snug?

Those boats in the marina are frozen in surrounded by ice.  New Bern is about 170 miles North East of Myrtle Beach SC.
Temps are in the single digits.  They got six inches of snow Wednesday early AM.
People live on those boats.   Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Yikes !!  😬

Does that do damage to the outdrives, lower units or engine blocks ?

Don't know if there will be damage, but the temps will be back to the normal 50s and 60s. next week. 
They had two weeks of sub freezing temps.  I doubt this marina has seen ice before.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  It snowed a few days ago in New Bern, but only 4 to 7 inches.  Since then, the temperature has been a low of 6 and is not expected to change for a few more days.  There is a local site that I use called town dock nc .  The good outlook according to the major weather stations is that a late January thaw is expected.

Arimaway is that condo built up on pilings because of potential flooding?  Reminds me of houses on the Gulf Coast.

Yes built on pilings for potential flooding.   I have the condo 2 and a half years and four hurricanes came through the area since.  Water level didn't even come close to the condo.  But I'm told when Irene hit there was about two feet of water where my Arima is parked.  Supposedly Irene was the high water mark.

Here is a couple of a  past hurricanes in the marina.  Northwest Creek Marina is one of the largest and most protected on the east coast.
