The clean-up begins

We launched from Stonehaven a couple of weeks ago for our last fishing trip of the season and it was an idyllic morning, calm seas and a warm breeze. Fast forward to earlier this week and this was the scene. That's the same boat in the first picture. Hope the owner had insurance... going to need more than gelcoat filler.

Remember it all so well, but the past couple of times there have been additional factors some were there before and others not. Twice now there have been easterly gales on the highest spring tides and that will bring flooding. But the re channeling of the Carron river was a bad idea. In spate conditions it used to burst the sand where they put the bridge and it would just blast out to sea. The new sea defence blocks they put in is causing the shingle to pile up and form ramps up the wall at Cowie so the sea has a straight path over. There's no easy answer now a the work has been done but reducing the shingle would be a start and raising the wall at the lower prom (or simply lowering the shingle) would surely help.

Right about the shingle. Storm just lifts it up.

Had a look at the video on the Evening Express website. The large blocks that were placed in front of the defences on the upper prom were put there to stop the sea undermining them. This always happened after a storm. The shingle would be pulled back out to sea. As a kid you would find dead squid and drums of fat from a sunk ww2 vessel and the shingle was always really low. Now it is left up towards the top of the defences. They protected the defences but not the property behind them!
