Salvaging SANDY Flotsam
On a beach under the Manhattan Bridge I have been unbolting the floats from a piece of worn flotsam, a gift of Hurricane Sandy. I plan to re-attach each float to a oyster grow-out bag/pouch/cage. Later, I will provide photos of this result--see my earlier posts on my oyster growing efforts in Greenport NY.
Side note: Hurricane is one of the few Carib and Mayan native people words in the English language. Let us not forget that the Carib native people were exterminated in the Caribbean Islands because they violently resisted enslavement. Perhaps you are more familiar with the enslaved force that was bought and brought to provide the 12/7/365 labor.
