This guy needs a northeaster for several days or a hurricane to get the water level where he needs it, and then once he has the boat to the open bay, he could be dealing with 8 foot seas with 50 knot winds.

I wish him luck.
Word! This poor fella just needs to pony up and get his boat moved. I know times are hard but it should be priority #1.. Hell if he's got to he could move on to it after he gets it out and recoup some expense while he's not paying rent.
