Damage to the boat is the responsibility of the boat owner. This is an act of God. Only chance to have the marina or dock builder cover the damage is if it can be proven that the docks were poorly engineered and/or constructed. Have been taking boat claims all day from LOTO and the damage is all over the lake area. Good luck to those with docks still standing.

The amount of loss there is unreal. Just between the Moorings and Port Arrowhead, you talking tens of millions of $. That is just two of many. Almost all large docks have damage and an unimaginable number of personal docks. Some of the pictures are sickening.

We went thru the same thing in '04 New Yrs day. The East/West docks got wiped out. 3 ft of snow on the South side of the roof, not a speck on the North side. Several boats went under. All boat claims were the owners responsibilites. The marina raised the boats and charged each owner $10k+ for their couple hrs of labor. Some of the docks that had no boats under them sunk to the roof, then raised back up as the snow melted with hardly any damage. The year round ones shown in the pics, obviously totaled. Now have brand new docks with an increase in slip fees of $1000 across the board. So marina gets all new docks and raised the slip fees. I think they were jumping up and down with joy.

Have tons of more pics, it is a sad sight.

I remember many freezing rain/sleet storms with multiple inches of snow afterwards. Extremely heavy. I don't miss Wisconsin, but have to deal with other unfortunate weather conditions living in the south. I feel bad for you all, hope it all works out. Jeff

so far 23 of the biggest marinas including port arrowhead, marine maxx, searay heaven has sustained serious damage or were totally destroyed, there are thousands of private docks with damage and water patrol reported thousands of boats being in the water or submerged, all of these boats will have to be rewinterized, what a nightmare. port arrowhead has over 200 huge searays, only 1 dock remains, and they just got in a new 60' searay which was severly damaged, we are talking probably in the hundred s .of millions of damage . this will definately affect some insurance companies big time.heading down tomorrow will report back.
