BH, Mandeville has a lot of local flooding still so we can't get in to check the boat yet unfortunately. At home we had the expected storm debris. Fences are fine. 7-1/2" of rain so not bad. We lost lights twice for about 30 minutes. Unbelievable. From what I can tell, Gulfport got a LOT of rain.

The boat looks great. The house had about 2' of water under it witht the usual suspects of turtles, grass, snakes and logs. We never lost power and we had several cold beverages when the tide started roll out. My friends on the local rivers didn't fare so well with the surge and the rain, there will be damage. Several sail boaters broke loose and required rescue. The casinos will be open this weekend and I will be half lit tonight after shoveling marsh weeds all day. Here's a picture of the ol' girl with water on the way.

Yea, I'm curious what caused it to sink. I thought maybe it sat down on a piling on the stbd side, but I looked for scratches and nothing indicated this. Maybe a port line too tight? Hard to say.

Maybe the monthly payment is what caused it to sink?

Thanks BH. And as of this week I plan on revising my hurricane plan again. Paul (Swampu) told me of a boatyard close to our area. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna begin putting her on the hard there for future storms and let my slip in Louisiana go. For the additional slip cost, I can probably pay for 5-6 storms a yearAs soon as I can talk with the guys and check on how it works I plan on setting it up. Are you back in the water? Can I ask how much your haulout/ blocking cost and worked out? Honestly- I never realized there was a yard high enough in our area.

My thoughts exactly. It's funny how many people I know with boats did not follow their normal hurricane plan. Not so much as an extra line. I'm going to invest in another roll of 1 1/4" 600' line for next year.

Fork, Yea back in the water on Saturday, spent all day yesterday cleaning and rerigging canvas stowing gear, etc.. Absolutley agree on the haul out.. it was less anxiety. I would only do one thing different, instead of removing canvas, I will leave it on and roll it up.. the fly bridge canvas actually would have helped keep the Bimini tight and wouldnt have allowed the roll up/folding of the top. Life getting back to normal at the marina.

Swampu, I made an observation that the older the boat, the more care and diligence the Owner took. I saw a 1975 Trawler lovingly hauled out and fretted over, and a 2008 Sea Ray, left in the slip... not calling out Sea Ray, guys, I also saw a couple of Grady's left to their own.. not sure how many were lost here in Pensacola.

Haulout and Block cost for my Marina were 500.00 to get on the reservation list for a guaranteed spot (includes Stands and Chain) haulout was 300 and per day fee of 20.00 My total was just over 900.00 Insurance company paid 50%.

Can you guys believe that the remnants of Isaac have headed back out into the Gulf and have a 50% chance of tropical cyclone formation? If it gets named, it will have a different name because the main system moved on up to the NE. I'm near New Orleans right now remediating storm damage.
