Surely a stressful situation. Got my heart rate up reading the account. Glad you made it out safe. Sorry about the loss of your boat.

At 704 you said you had a problem but didn’t mention taking water until 7:42. Did you already know you were taking water at 704?

Also excuse my ignorance but what does “increase popcorns” mean?

We installed an alarm system that has an audible alarm for $50 that is also connected to WIFI and can send you a text (great for dockage). It is battery operated for the alarms and placed by thru-holes, and low points in my Ericson 34-2. Highly recommend some type of alarm.

Installed our immediately after Richard lost his Ericson.

Interesting - this thing actually works with the marina WiFi network? And you've tested it and receive an alert at home? I see they also have a temperature/humidity module...

Will be testing this week as we just moved to a new marina and WiFi. Will keep you posted.
