That's pretty harsh Rick, I'm sorry to hear it. What were they spraying? (Why would be another matter! I've never heard of such a ridiculous scheme of spraying water for algae and weeds?!? That's truly retarded. Why wouldn't they just cut them like everybody else? Or if they had to poison them, why are they spraying poison at water? Very strange.)
As a guy who has been exposed to a lot of bad stuff through jobs I've had, I can tell you that momentary exposure to most bad stuff doesn't usually have lasting symptoms. Can't speak for the long term but so far so good! I hope the same applies for you.

I hope you are documenting all of this... and I hope you recover soon. I also hope you got the name of the person and company responsible for the spraying.

Just curious, what chemicals were being sprayed?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Get your exposure documented, make a report with local Harbor Patrol or law enforcement agency with jurisdiction. Check with local environmental agency (probably state) also county & local health depts. & maybe even check with local fire Dept. re: application of hazardous materials in public areas. You couldn't get permits to carry this stuff in the same truck let alone put it in the water here. I once had to evacuate a large City Hall complex because the gardeners got carried away spraying Malathion. It was really just noxious odors but bad enough to result in large numbers of people with real complaints, nausea, headaches, sore throat etc. Spraying poisons into the air is pretty tightly regulated everywhere I hope.

Couldn't hurt to contact poison control. They should be able to give you the run down on any sysmtoms to expect/look out for etc... They also document ALL calls that come into them.
