Double ouch. Why on earth didn't you get that stuff moved out in advance? It's not like you didn't have ample warning.

I hope you have good insurance.

Man , I would'nt even know where to begin! I guess getting them oiled down asap would at least stop the erosion. I hope you can salvage them! Good luck!

Get the salt out now. Hell, they're wet anyway, rinse them in the bathtub. Then soak them in oil to stop the rusting. Good luck on the resto.
