The wind tore off a large section of the ferry wharf, and left behind a gapping hole.
All ferry boat trips to Frenchboro and Swans Island had to be cancelled.
Everything from mail deliveries to getting high school students off the island for school was affected.
Wind and waves pushed broken pieces under a nearby wharf and caused more concern.
A Department of Transportation dive team will try again Thursday morning to assess the damage to the wharf.
If they give the okay and the winds calm down, the first boat will leave swans island at nine 45.
The first trip from Bass Harbor will be at 10:30am.
