BOATS ORPHANED BY KATRINA

Boats in the Slidell area, orphaned by Katrina
taken July 2006


I spent several mornings in the summer of 2006 driving around the Slidell, Highway 90 and Irish Bayou areas, documenting boats orphaned by Katrina.
Initially, it was reported that over 10,000 boats where lost, that the boat owners had no idea where their boats ended up.
I thought it'd be interesting to see and show what's still out there, almost a year since Katrina's landfall.

Updated February 2007


This barge came over the levee in N.O. East by the Textron Plant


Here's another shot of it


Another boat in the same area


These two are about 1/2 a mile away from the barge



This is right at the Chef Pass bridge


Same place

This sailboat must've been hidden during all of my other treks along 90.
Here's one that recently made it's way up to the road


Seen at Fairview Riverside Park in Madisonville

Here's a link to a story of "Katrina's Marina's", detailing what it's like since the storm
