Yesterday was spent taking down walls and lifting floors to reveal the 1st floor. The good news. Some of the boats, like the bat boat, correct craft and some other boats made it. The sad news.. Seth and Renee’s first boat, a white Corvette boat did not make it. Two 18 ft Holidays are gone, an 18 Sportsman, Higgins, and several pre war smaller boats. Gone! The Barns craft a very rare boat from the lake is now Topless and not in good shape. The 25 Sportsman hardtop took a rough hit. A nice Ski boat, gone.. Ugh….Needless to say this might be the best ad for Hagerty Marine Insurance ever!We will let the pictures tell the story..
Monday was a very sad day, but the good news is that the roof and walls are cleared out as are the boats. just in time for MORE SNOW! I spoke with Tommy last night and apparently some time on Sunday, he fractured his arm. And worked through out Sunday and Monday to make the deadline. Amazing! On a personal note, although no lives were lost in this catastrophe, the efforts to save boats were heroic. Each portion of roof had to be removed as it came down as to not create more damage removing it. The good news is that the boats are secured in multiple storage places in the community. And Tommy went to the Dr to take care of his arm.
