Today they opened the gates on the C54 canal and raised the water level in the marina almost 3 feet in 2 hrs. There's a lot of water out there.
    As soon as they'll let us back in the marina, we'll put the Carib back on the dock so we can be prepared to work when conditions allow (hopefully soon and often).
    Now that we have utilities restored we can start working on a couple of relief efforts for the Keys and eastern Caribbean, from Barbuda to the Dominican Republic. We've got some ideas that we hope will work out to help restore folks and their property as quickly as possible. There's a lot of work to be done.
    I've heard of or from quite a few folks after the hurricane including Dell Winders who could sure use some help right now. His van is broken, no food, no meds, no money. If someone could send him a little to his paypal account I am sure he would appreciate it.
    More news as it happens.
    Ya'll take care.
    ropefish,

    Could you post or PM Dell's address? I don't have the funds right now but I have a potential Buyer for my' German WWII Era Rifle Scopes and if they sell, I could send him some funds via a USPS Money Order. I closed my PayPal Account and am closing my eBay account as well. eBay keeps dragging it on and on, apparently in hopes that I will reconsider leaving them. Well, all I can say to them is, "good luck with that!!" as I am tired of getting ripped off by both and after how I was treated when a Buyer wanted to return a scope for a refund while I was out of town. He returned the scope, I refunded his money plus the shipping and even though he said the Elevation Adjustment was skipping, there was nothing wrong with the scope and eBay never replied to any of my emails to them.

    Anyways, thanks for posting about Dell and I hope he gets plenty of help!

    Anyone know and know how Capt Ralph Delph and family of Key West are doing? Ralph is a good friend but I lost contact with him when he headed back to Key West some years ago after getting shot by one of his clients on a hunting trip in Montana. Ralph was a Fishing Guide in Montana during the off-season for fishing in Florida waters, then he became a Hunting and Fishing Guide when he took semi-permanent residence in Montana. After recouping from being shot, I believe he did a little bit of guiding for fishing but was leaning towards going back to Key West. That was the last I heard from him, the best Fisherman and Fishing Guide/Boat Captain & Mate I ever met. If you run into him, tell him that Frank Ferrell says hi.

    Thanks, folks. I know Dell will appreciate any help he might get. I'm not a fan of the free lunch, but I am sure that Dell would help anyone that needed help if he could.
    Dell..if you see this, post up a good story or two to give folks a little insight into what you've been doing for the last 50 or 60 or 70 years.

    Boy, do I feel stupid. After doing some searching, I found that Ralph went to the great fishing waters in Heaven on February 13, 2016. I am very sad to learn this and he is surely missed by all who knew and met him. Although he has passed on, I still wonder if his wife Caroline, their children and grandchildren are okay and especially so if they were in Irma's path.

    Bill, thank you for posting this, I will get some to him right away. But my concern is how will he be able to get the food and meds without a running vehicle? Is there anyone there to help him with this?

    I don't see why they keep people from their homes. That's mostly the reason people don't want to leave in the first place, with everything they own in the world unsecured.
    It's not like they are inspecting each and every house before entrance for safety.
    They tried that here during the big Hayman fire but it didn't work, people just drove right on through and said arrest me haha. No one got arrested.
    I would be one to have a hard time leaving my home, I can understand that for sure.

    Johnny, it is hard leaving things you worked hard and slaved for...... but, when those things turn against you and try to kill you, it's fight or flight mode and usually easier to just run like he//!
    My home has tried to kill me before, lol, just can't predict where blowed apart splintering wood will end up, or what it will pierce....

    Pat,

    Folks in areas that get hit by Hurricanes have tried just about everything thought of to keep their' homes secure an intact. I wonder if anyone ever tried wrapping their' home with the Pallet Wrap Plastic that is used to hold boxes and other items on pallets. Heck, you can purchase some big rolls of heavy gauge wrap and wrap most homes two or three or four times for probably under $200 total. Next threat of a Hurricane, happy wrapping!

    Hahaha, I gotta an old shed, only thing holding it together is the rust. I had honestly thought about that idea! LOL. Wrap that sucker like a truck pallett.
    I did wrap some inside stuff and secure them in locking cases, figured maybe they'd be found if......
    I just couldn't pack everything in the house,
    but I tried to.......

    Funny you should mention that, I did see a car that was wrapped in plastic, the same as used to wrap large pallets! Not sure how it did through the storm but someone resorted to giving it a try!
