Hurricane Sally

We, she made it through Sally largely unscathed. The water and storm surge was up over 8 feet. When it receded, the port aft piling got stuck inside the davit which held the boat so it wouldn’t hit the dock or other boats. Amazing!
The Bimini is destroyed and we need a new bow light.
Many boats around us and in the area sunk or ended up onshore. Very sad day.

You did a lot better than some others in those pictures.
Sure glad your damage was not a lot worse.
Time to start the repairs!

Congratulations, Rick. Your boat looks great. You really dodged a bullet! Many boat owners were not nearly as lucky as you.
