My poor boat on the harbour side after the storm surge hit the East Coast of Scotland.
The whole foredeck was torn off plus other damage. Many of the boats here were damaged as well.

Oh, dear, what a sorry sight! Your poor dinghy is indeed severely damaged.
This is a very fine "record" shot and it's interesting too. And it will be nice to look back at it in years to come. And, of course, it's wonderful news that the insurance company is going to pay out for all the damage. I presume that means you will be getting another boat? Is this one completely beyond repair?
Funnily enough, when I saw your last picture, an image of Seacliff harbour crossed my mind. That's a lovely place and not very far from you either, I guess. I had a trip there by myself last year (while doing some photographic "poaching" in your area) and got one or two reasonable shots of Tantallon Castle from low down by the harbour but I really must go back and try some more pictures - particularly of the tiny harbour itself.
I seem to remember that a chap called Jack Dale had a website and he does lobster fishing from the harbour at Seacliff. Do you know him? The whole enterprise sounded pretty risky and dangerous to me - I can't imagine that it's very safe travelling around these waters entirely by yourself with no companions or anyone to help if there's a mishap.
Kind Regards and Happy Sailing in your new dinghy in 2013!
