Hi, everyone I want to introduce myself. I have been a member
of the forum for a while but have been dealing with the aftermath of Katrina for a while. My boat was totaled by Katrina and the given back to me by the insurance
company with a check for full value. I had her put back in the water
and she has sat in a slip since. I completely rebuilt the boat in 1995 and now will do it again. I have ordered many of the parts
I will need in the last week, I am lucky I have all the receipts from the 1995 rebuild
The clearing if the Municipal Yacht Harbor in New Orleans
started last week. It is hard to watch as boat after boat is pulled off the bottom then dropped on a barge then to the hard. Once on the hard
a excavator then crushes the boat and loads it into a dumpster and they are hauled to a landfill. It is estimated that over 150 boat will be crushed.
I am a member
of the Airstream Forum which is a sister forum to this forum, the Airstream is our escape capsule for hurricanes. I am sure I will have many questions and hope I can contribute to Forum.
Me on the boat in the pile of 150 boats in the parking lot of Southern Yacht
Club one month after Katrina, took another 3 months to get the boat out.
