Irma hurricane update.
My Marina had 85 % damage due to the storm. 2 of the 3 piers were destroyed as well as half of the one my boat was on.
Many boats were lost.
Andiamo suffered flooding in both hulls and I thank the efforts of those who worked and are still working to save her. The port hull leak was patched with about 2-3 feet of water and was able to be pumped out.  With the deck level again the stbd hull started taking on water from a gash at the waterline and perhaps others. Even with generators and extra pumps the stbd rested on its keel with just the deck above water.  An additional gas powered high volume pump was rented and was able to pump her out and temporary patches are being put into place to minimize more leakage.
The future of the Andiamo is in peril!
