As a Floridian, I'd like to chide everyone about storm. Reality, storms are dangerous. hope everyone is alright.

This is all i've seen so far. All the marina's I've been to and seen pictures of, the water was way up over the dock. Nobody I know has had any damage though. My neighbor has one of his boats on his front lawn, i thought that was gonna blow over for sure!

The boats on the lower level of the rack in our marina were about 6 inches from floating. One boat sank, and a lot of wind damaged tops but no major damage to any hi-pert boats...

Neighbor had 6 trees fall on his property, on three sides of his Baja. Missed the boat completely thank goodness.

I parked my boat next to three giant trees, but no luck because we did not have much wind up here. Maybe next time

NO IDEA - the Coast Guard rescued a man and woman Saturday night in our area right off the coast of Grandview (VA Beach) in a sailboat!!!

No reason our CG personell and resources shoudl be out there risking their lives to save these idiots. They should bill them for the cost of the rescue....
