one of ten out of 60

yes .my boat,an old fiberglass boat is a battle axe.they dont build them the way they used to.there is a major amount of minor cosmetic damage,the bow rail and stern rail needs to be replaced,a few bent chainplates and stanchions,but there was 2 inches of water in the bilge.the main companionway hatch is missing,but the dropboards remained in place.I am sure the boat was swamped multiple times.what saved my ass was the anchor line that I spider webbed around the boat to the dock cleats.the dock pulled away from the main walkway,but the sunken vessel next to me held the overturned dock in place.the mast was never was on the deck tied to the bow and sternrails,and the mast is sticking out of the water like an arrow in a target.I will retrieve it asap and I already have a place line up to move the boat to in fort lauderdale
