Rough water greeted the 47 powerboats that participated in last weekend’s Long Island Stampede Poker Run, and photographer Tim Sharkey was there to bring home the action. Seems like boats taking a beating are an early season staple for the well-known photographer, who snagged some really wild stuff during the inaugural Erie Poker Run in Pennsylvania just the weekend before the New York event, which was organized by Billy Carroll.

Lumpy and bumpy waters—with lots of holes—greeted the participants of last Saturday’s Long Island Stampede Poker Run. Just check out the gallery above.

“After Super Storm Sandy everything has changed,” Sharkey said. “Even the best of them are still learning the new shoal areas coming into the inlet.”
