L.S.,
Good to see your boat survived. Talk is obviously cheap but if all the thing fell in place I'd match the $85 K offer you got. After well talked a few weeks ago I went out and got an insurance quote from PMA that didn't quite put me into cardiac arrest !
Hopefully Ivan will also avoid you,

Bob/Steve,
I thought you guys had a trailer?????????? And you left it on the lift????

Just a word of wisdom on this one.. Do not leave your boat on a lif in a Hurricane...Especially if you have a trailer.
I know you guys aren't all that close to the inlet, but hurricanes do generate one heck of a tide surge. That surge could have come up and over the gunnels on the boat. No the boat wouldn't float...as you had it tided town with the death straps.... I've seen a few boats het held under by owners tying the boats to the lift..

I'm glad to see that the boat made it through.
Now, if the cat 5 Ivan decides to look this way....will you put the boat on the trailer??? Let me know if you need help. You know I'm glad to.

Don't have a trailer to use.
