Re: Marina destruction

I think OP is way too judgmental. Every boat that was destroyed has a story behind it, and many of those stories could involve significant threats to home, health, or other things higher priority than a boat. Itís too easy to armchair quarterback othersí apparent inaction without knowing their story.

Maybe OP knows a bunch of guys there who make big bucks moving boats, but not everyone is tied into those networks, and I bet those guys already had plenty of business, and inflated prices to match. In that situation the millionaires always get first dibs.

Because many donít have that attitude, they trust the company. The few folks I talked to about the losses in the VIís all expressed dismay at how claims were handled. Many were denied out of hand, others were written off as a total loss without any survey. All over the place. My personal experience with insurance underwriters has been less than promising, very, very little clue as to what they were about, understanding the risks.

It is not an attitude. It is experience.

Re: Marina destruction

I am in a similar marina in Charleston. Anything cat 2 and above I would run at least two days before (probably south) or go way up river on multiple anchors. Those floating docks just cannot handle the wave action of a cat 3 or 4 regardless of storm surge.

In the interest of keeping this fact based, tell us about your legitimate claim that was denied. Otherwise I would suspect you are just making stuff up.

Re: Marina destruction

According to the National Weather Service at New Bern

Sept 13, 15:54 wind was 36mph with gusts 47mph.
Sept 13, 16:54 wind was 35mph with gusts 52mph.

These are the most recent numbers listed. Maybe check tomorrow for later numbers, they provide the last 3 days. Earlier figures were lower,
