Got in early this year, in the Illinois river

The front of my white boat there was lifting the front of the trailer off the ground. I didn't realize it would get that high. I found my spare tire on the other side of the place. Another foot and it could have picked up the back of the trailer with the red strap and started floating around. I figured nothing too bad could really happen.

The Illinois river went to a record 29.35 feet at Peoria in April 2013. Insurance influenced at least one of the other situations you see in storage.

Bigger images, some of the storage place, and three of one of the local marinas. About 2 more feet and the fuel dock could float away. I didn't upload the pictures to the forum because they have it set so that unregistered users can't view them.

I bet your boat is doing better than those cars. And that RV is going to smell funky when it dries!
