CC members who’ve parked in the lot neighboring Bayonne Dry Dock have reported on the unwanted paint jobs with some regularity. (See here and here. Cruise Critic first reported on the situation in 2005!) When they paint ships in dry dock, the overspray can blow over to the parked cars. But a past promise to pay closer attention to weather conditions and to favor rollers over spray hasn’t helped, evidently.
We spoke with Danielle Gaskins, operations administrator at Cape Liberty Cruise Port, and she assured us that they are in meetings right now with Bayonne Dry Dock in an effort to fix the problem. She said that Bayonne Dry Dock is eager to resolve damage to cars affected by paint overspray. Cruisers whose cars were damaged should call Kevin Sullivan at 201-823-9295.
If you don’t receive resolution, contact Cape Liberty Cruise Port at 201-823-3737.
Cruzoholic, you may have to contact the cruise port about your antenna, since that isn’t related to the paint overspray. The Mets magnet? You’re on your own with that one.
