    The bow of this small lobster skiff is all that remains above water. Debris inside the hull probably is keeping it afloat. It is munknown what kind of damage it sustained from being battered against the causeway rocks. It will have to be taken out of the water and assessed to see it it's salvageable. (It was later refloated and tied up at Hoppy's Landing)

    The December 12 storm brought high winds and surf. The full moon tide brought waves crashing over the Causeway (only 3 feet above sea-level)the morning of December 12 at 745AM. One small vessel is sunk to the right of the boat still afloat (it was saved and brought to Hoppy's Landing nearby)-the bow can be seen bobbing up and down to the right of the power boat banging against the rocks.

    This rig is a GMC Mountain/Trail bike with heavy duty suspension w/21 speeds. It has all Topeak cargo gear which includes a front handle bar bag, portable cell-phone pouch, and a slide-off rear pack. There are front and rear rack mounts, tire pump & gauge, portable Kestrel weather station, 2 on board cameras (Vado units),and a Garmin GPS receiver. Other features include: a high powered lighting system with hi-lo rechargeable dual headlights, and 2 rear programmable red strobe lights for the road. One of my favorites is the self sealing tire tubes (about 5 bucks each from Wal-Mart)and they work great! Also included is a Hikers First-Aid kit, 4 1-liter water bottles, 2 heavy duty locks, wireless speedometer, bike tool kit. The bike is powered by a vintage 1957 motor: ME. (with 8" Chippewa Steel Toe Loggers) I usually try to ride at least 100 miles a week to stay in shape hauling this rig around. I keep tire pressure at 40lbs and have added weight in cargo bags. It's harder to pedal around, but I consider this "reserve" energy. When I increase tire pressure to 60lbs and lighten the load my endurance is longer and faster if need be. After a good run, nothing tastes better than a nice high calorie Fried Clam Plate at Gene's Lobster Shack in Fairhaven.

    A Nova Scotia style lobster boat rides out the strong southeasterly gales., south of the Causeway to West Island. Winds have gusted to 56 MPH. Video by Mark L. Baron Jr. For more details of this storm and live updates visit www.westislandweather.com NOTE:These classic Nova Scotia style lobster boats are higher in the bow than a Maine style vessel , a common sight along the New England coast. These rugged boats are designed to brave the harsh conditions that may be encountered. They have a fully flared bow to punch into head seas, rounded bilges for load carrying ability and a graceful shear line that ad to their stability. Lower in the aft section it allows for the hauling and setting of traps which are marked with a float that has a design linking the vessel from which it came. http://www.westislandweather.com

    After the Storm West Island Weather Station, Fairhaven, MA.A spectacular sunrise captured on West Island Weather Station's SkyCam system, after a wild night of heavy snow and high winds gusting over 47MPH. The Feb 10 Nor'easter dumped 6.25" of heavy wet snow and froze up the tower gear at the West island Weather Station. The rain/snow line was right over Buzzards Bay early in the Feb 10 snow storm. Below freezing temperatures eventually won out. The iced up gear on the tower of The West Island Weather Station took 15 hours to thaw out. This clip looks like still shots - but it's video!
