A vicious storm came through Brevard Country on October 9th. Winds came out of the east at fourty plus knots. There is a small harbor north of Pineda Causeway and US1. There are a number of small sail & motor boats moored in the area. The anchor systems failed and all the boats washed ashore from ropes fraying and breaking, and chains failing. Most are recoverable, but a few are either sunk or severely damaged. On Oct 10th I was on hand to watch and help out with the recovery of two boats.
