Its very easy to sit on the internet
and say, "Well I would have been doing this or that."
I'm in the middle of a hurricane
in the dark of night with possibly a broken foot (illegally trespassing) and trying to make sure my boat is okay.
As we walk the docks, there are literally 10s of boats we pass in this sort of condition. Do we "try to save them all?" Or do we try to save the ones we know we can? Or do we worry about lawsuits?
I'll tell you all something. I have not disclosed everything that happened at the marina for fear of lawsuits, as was mentioned previously, but every time I've been out to the marina we've been out on the pier for over an hour. And that is a long time to get whipped by a hurricane
, and a lot longer than it takes to tie up/watch two boats.
As for my neighbor's boat, I'm not sure there is anything I could have done. I'm out of lines. I could have offered them nothing. We did attempt to wedge some spare fenders but they're all gone now.
So please, take what you read with a grain of salt
and a warning. I'm not some soulless ******* that just snubs my nose at someone and laughs as their boat is destroyed. I'm an injured man illegally in a marina fighting to save my boat, my friend's boat, and possibly a few others that might be worth it with my limited time and resources.
