Re: Floated off the stands

Well back from the marina. The boat was floated into a pile with 32 other boats.
The bow pulpit, and all the lifeline stanchions on the starboard side are bent to 90 degrees, the starboard teak handrail is gone, there is a deep hole between the windows and much of the teak trim is broken, the starboard stern pushpit is bent to 45 degrees. More importantly, the rudder looks bent to the right, and it looks like the outboard was flooded. I didn't place a high insurance $ value on the boat, so I am afraid they will total it. Plus there is a salvage claim against it. I swore I wouldn't let it bother me, but it does.
