Unhappy Sister boat and marina damage from Ike

This is the blog for some friends who own the sister ship to our Kadey Krogen. Amazing that the entire marina floated off the pilings, stayed together but deposited the slips and boats 400 feet from the water!

Sorry about their boat -- those Kadey Krogen's are pretty.

I liked this part, only in Texas! :

We are not out the woods yet. It may be several weeks before the boats can be moved. During that time the public is clammoring to get in and sight-see the disaster area, and then there are the looters. The salvage guys have already come by to try to swindle the boat owners. Some of the liveaboard owners have armed themselves with shotguns and are chasing people away. The police drive by occasionally, but they have too many other things to do, so they have not said no to the guns, but they don't want them pointed at anyone.
