I saw the pic of the water tanker, but didn't know about the HMS Bounty. I wasn't real assured with the 2x4's, but it looks like they may have made the difference. I have to speak with the marina to find out how high the water got. I've been watching the videos that [MENTION=52248]Conlan Rose[/MENTION] posted. That's the LI Sound which looks like the ocean in those pics. Usually the Sound has waves up to a foot, and once in awhile gets to two or three feet at most.
