I don't think anyone just shrugs and says let insurance take care of things.

As to building homes to meet certain risk criteria, I...

Wifey B: Let's keep perspective that some of the homes had never flooded and some were in areas that hadn't flooded until 2015 or 2016. So some had lived in areas all their lives and never needed it....

Wifey B: We're almost home from three days in NC and SC. There were the storms of 2015, topped by Matthew in 2016, now Florence in 2018. We're a boat forum so we talk boats, but I never once thought...

Just one day at a time. The diagnoses and medical records are one thing. How you feel is another. Don't let them cross. Don't let yourself feel physically worse based simply on labs or doctors. Also,...

Home Port, as in the documentation, has nothing to do with where the boat resides either. It's just a place you selected.
