Hurricane update

These are the only photos so far, nobody is being let into the boatyard due to hazard.

Davits before Hurricane Ian

Before Hurricane Ian


There was a rumor of a fatality when an anchor fell on a worker.

The boats have been lifted back on the jacks and so far it looks like the mast and Davits are causalities.

My friend in Englewood said it may be 2 weeks or more before we can go back.

If we can’t float it safely we will have to sell it for salvage as our savings are exhausted.


We only had liability because it was supposed to be safe in the yard!

Also, we could not get adequate insurance without a recent survey and we had just finished the 10 year restoration and was going to do that before we took out the boat THIS MONTH!


It is just one of those things and at 75 and 68 there is a limited amount of resources available.

As always we will survive!


This would have been the month (October 2022) we would have returned to re-launch and sail away for the winter.

IF AND ONLY IF the hull is intact and can float without leaks we plan to motor over to the mooring and then at the end of winter we will complete repair in Mississippi at a private dock that is up a river out of the hurricane zone!
