    I would PAY the USCG to let me do that with their tugs. What a fun way to spend a few days.

    One of the TV stations rode along with the USCG this past week while they were breaking ice on the Hudson. That was pretty cool to see too.

    I just came through the Great bridge and Locks this morning at 6am and for the first time in this Florida boy's life, I was driving and breaking through surface ice on the ICW. Thin enough for the L650 I am on to crush as I moved forward but what an eerie sound it makes. At Coinjock right now and will be in Oriental or Beaufort City Docks tonight.. I got to get south, guys like me do not do cold much less ICE !!!!!

    Have a great Sea Ray day !!

    Talk about debris. Looks like whole trees mixed in.

    Sure looks like it! Can't wait to make the 20mi trek in the spring from winter storage to our marina dodging logs the entire way. :)
    Cocktail speed, with the admiral keeping lookout.
    This is about that time of year where I really start itching to get back onboard.

    I think its time to move south like hottoddie.

    The ice has been a big story here in CT. In fact, my kiddos made the local news segment the other day. This marina is about 10 minutes from my house and when I had my 220 Sundeck, I kept it at this marina. The owner (Dave) wasn't too pleased with the damage, but my girls were VERY excited about being TV stars (for a few seconds).

    I can’t imagine anything like that. Incredible what Mother Nature can do. And... you have 2 beautiful girls, love their excitement.

    Does anyone know if Essex Island Marina was damaged?

    A friend of mine was down there this past weekend. Did not look that bad. They still have boats in water. Did not see the basin out front on the river but around back had a few pilings lifted. Nothing major from what he saw.
