Boats Destroyed in Marina Roof Collapses

This is old news by now, but I had not gotten around to posting it. Boats were destroyed on both the Sassafras and Bohemia rivers. I think they are exclusively powerboats - never seen a mast fit under those roofs:

I have some private pictures, but cannot get them to upload.

I think they are "just" powerboats. Kinda cold-hearted, don't you think?

I didn't mean it that way. I own a powerboat too. I'll change it to "exclusively" powerboats.

The irony of a covered slip. Better weather protection, right up until it sinks your boat. What a shame.
