That's a tough one to watch. That boat was in the wrong spot period.
Maybe should have put it more up river or in a better covered mooring. Maybe tied it to a few trees onshore.

Re: This May Happen if No Chafing Gear Is Used

The only thing I could learn from that is compassion for insurance companies. It would appear the owner could have cared less about his boat. One line going to a mooring with very little scope. I would guess he spent 15 extra minutes getting ready for the hurricane.

Maybe he was one of the folks that followed the bad advice given in other threads about Irene being a pussy.
