Aww man! That bites!

Hope there's a happy ending.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman

Holy Smokes. That sucks, Smack. Wish you the best. Hope you're made whole, or better.

My deepest sympathies.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

The liability sure is an interesting question. Moving a dock out from a sheltered location to a wide open one...I suspect most of the owners weren't happy with that but it was the only way to keep their boats wet so they accepted it. And if that's a reservoir...I hate to ask if wreck removable and pollution abatement are first going to be required as well, so the boats may have to be raised and removed. A hundred feet but at the shore...towtruck & hawser?

I asked the same in the other thread. It may be an upside to having his liability pay for the recovery. But he would just have a hulk, presumably with a big hole in it. I hope it isn't becoming more of a liability for him. We have lakes that fine you by the day until you retrieve your stuff.

He didn't deserve this.

No, he doesn't. No one does.

I learned early on to lock the doors and close the windows so it wasn't hard to carry that over into "always secure the boat" but having the whole damned DOCK get wiped out, go figure.

My condolences Smack. I can't even imagine walking up to that. Hope you find a new ride and that it's Miller Time VERY soon.

Just now saw this and read Smack's heartbreaking account. Really, really sorry, man. It's like the drought set you up for the windstorm like a one-two punch.
