Re: Floated off the stands

I was in NOLA rebuilding after Katrian came through. We had many pieces of equipment that float and then sat down. Damage depended on what they landed on from zero to severe. A near by marina had a lot of boats floated. Again, it just depended on where they came to rest. Some were simply placed back on stands. But the weight alone? If that did anything serious to the hull it strikes me as rather thin.
