How did the CATs fare in Ike ?

Was just wondering if the CATs fared any better than the MONO's in IKE? Anyone know?

They were very curious and got into big trouble!

Having nine lives was an advantage though...

OK... Pretty funny stuff... I really liked the Ninja Cat...

As for if I were asking about at sea or dock... a friend with a CAT in Florida says his insurance won't cover a named storm damage if he is tied up to the dock due to the risk of it getting holed by the pilings... so he goes off shore throws out a bunch of anchors takes everything off the deck and drives off into the sunset... so, I was just wondering if 110mph winds damaged the CATs more since they have more wind exposure, I would guess the risk of them getting picked up and flipped over would be higher ? Just wondering...

Cheers

Our Solaris Sunstar 36 came through Ike with only a few scratches. We are tied to the dock in Galveston in a pretty tight slip, got well over 10-12 foot storm surge and came out better than 95% of the boats. I would like to think it was the great job of tying lines that we did but realize it was just good luck. We had sunk boats, boats in the parking lot, and some that just dissapeared. In all there were only a few boats that made it out without serious damage. How we ever made it through that surge without breaking lines or tearing out deck hardware I will never know. Our house on the West End also suffered little damage. A.J.
