Yep still rent them, although every time we were there this past winter, house hunting, they were still moving sand.
In the early 2000s we rented a house on seagull in SNH for a few days in September. House was wonderful and loved the stay except the last night a TS was building. My husband and I have never been seasick IN a house before. The waves were crashing so hard into the house the house swayed.
The awesome power of Mother Nature is to be respected
