Keehi Boat Harbor in Honolulu was one of the areas around Hawaii that was left a mess in the wake of the March 11 tsunami.

While many of the boats that sank or sustained damaged that night have been removed from the water, a lot of the damage remains visible.

"It was really, really a bad scene," Russell Singer, assistant dock manager at the La Mariana Sailing Club, told a local reporter about that fateful day. "It was like a car accident and we were trying to extract victims. It was kinda how I felt."

The tsunami tore apart the piers at the sailing club and at the neighboring Keehi Marine Center, which lost two thirds of its docks. Only the docks on the shoreline remain; the damaged ones have been cleared away.
