Sail-World.com : After Hurricane Sandy: How to get around the 'new' waterways
After Hurricane Sandy: How to get around the 'new' waterways


'Before and after Hurricane Sandy Staten Island New York'    .

Superstorm Sandy dealt a devastating blow to marine facilities, navigation aids and channels along the New Jersey and New York coastlines of the USA. The storm also choked northern New Jersey’s Intracoastal Waterway and other channels with sunken boats, sand, silt and debris from buildings and piers. How will boaters know what services are available or where the navigational hazards exist?

Waterway Guide, the Association of Marina Industries (AMI) and Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) have teamed up to offer an easy, up-to-date, free online guide for boaters at www.WaterwayGuide.com/superstorm-sandy. But, marinas and other boating service providers need to share their operating information and update it throughout the season by sending an email to superstormsandy@waterwayguide.com.

'The good news is there has been a monumental rebuilding effort and the majority of marine facilities are either open or expect to reopen by the boating season,' said BoatUS Technical Director Beth Leonard, 'In addition, the New Jersey ICW and nearly all channels are open to navigation, although many hazards still exist in shallower areas and will likely remain that way for the 2013 boating season, especially in the northern Barnegat Bay area. Boaters cruising the ICW or just headed out for a Saturday afternoon, however, will need to know where navigational hazards still exist and where they can find fuel, slips, pumpouts, and repair facilities. This online resource is available to any marina, yacht club or boat club in the most storm-damaged areas wishing to post their information. Individual boaters can also send an email to superstormsandy@waterwayguide.com to provide updates on their marinas, boating facilities and any hazards in their local waters.'

The special Superstorm Sandy webpage covers all marinas on the New Jersey coast, New York City, Hudson Valley and Long Island’s South Shore. Marinas and other boating businesses do not need to be currently listed in Waterway Guide to participate. Updates can be sent at any time and will be posted promptly.

'This is a way for BoatUS, Waterway Guide and AMI to help the industry get back on its feet by generating business,' added Leonard.
