Just got word Possum is taking on water. It's too dangerous to go to her now. She will probably sink at the dock. I have hull insurance. What a pain in the ass. How the hell is water getting in?

Last I heard the power was still on across much of Miami - will the bilge pumps not hold her?

We lost power on the river but the generator is running so all us well. The worst for us should be over by 1430 hrs.

Good luck Parks.

She had at least three functioning bilge pumps Thursday, one 750, one 3500 twelve volts, and one 1500 110 volt. Don't know if the power is on there or not. It's off at my house since six this morning. The batteries would be fully charged until the power goes off. Two 4D batteries would run the pumps a long time.

I was worried about debris in the bilge so I wet/dry vacuumed it Thursday. Maybe I missed something.

Sorry to hear your problem with Popssum, probably more rain than scuppers can handle, and ingesting through locker dooor or similar. we can repair boats painfull as it is, bur severly injured people take longer. Stay safe and fix the boat tomorrow....
When I owned boatyards we stopped emergency hauling etc when the windspeed hit 50mph.
Sometimes better to open a bottle of wine and be fatalistic than take risks.

I think I've reached my wine limit for the entire year already dealing with and obsessing over these storms.

Hi Parks,

You have more good Karma than most people I know...hopefully it's transferable to your boat.

I hope the reports are wrong. Good luck.

Oh man, Parks. Uhh! I really hate this bad news and particularly I hate waiting and waiting for bad news. I'm heart broken for you.

Wifey B: I know it's hard being smart, Hopcar, but glad you're resisting dumb urges. Being told of a problem, you could probably fix if you were there but you can't get there really sucks. Maybe it won't sink. Glad you're safe and ok.

Hmph! Sorry to hear.

In the meantime, hope for the best... something like could be just sitting low from rain water and the pumps might catch up eventually...

65% of Broward. 45% Palm Beach. 70% Collier. 45% Lee. Outages started too before the storms really were anything. People kept reporting tornadoes but just random houses so no one could confirm what they were. The way it's going looks like the vast majority of the lower 2/3 of the state will be without. We lost ours hours ago, but pretty much expected when you're at the end of the line.

They expect 3.1 million homes to be without although a day ago they expected 4.1 million. They've actually restored some but then they may go back out. They warned that due to the number some might be out a day or even longer. I was thinking much longer.
