Sorry that tree did some damage. A carbon Capella 169 was my first kayak. I was still a beginner but it did well in the surf. I see them for sale in the PNet Classified. Earlier this summer a huge oak limb fell on the corner of my house. It punched some bath tub size holes in the roof, took out the corner of the roof, power lines, meter box, and some damage to my car. The limb was about 24'' in diameter, a water oak, so had it landed straight on the house it would have crushed it. Those limbs are very heavy and cause a lot of damage. That's what I thought would happen up there, but it appears that there was quite a lot of damage. Hitting at high tide is also very bad timing.
Although it sucks I suppose it could have been worse.
I updated my profile so feel free to contact me if you are headed this way. There is a good paddling group on meet up, and I'll go out with anyone who wants to paddle. I hope to get up the NE some summer.
