Hurricane Ike - CAT Field Team Status
By Rick Wilson - Published September 17, 2008 - Viewed 2169 times
Good evening everyone,
With Rick currently traveling on his way to
We had the surveyors doing more recon work today along with identifying and tagging vessels. Additionally we asked them to focus on meeting with marina owners/managers/dock masters in order to establish a good relationship and see what we may be able to help them with.
Here are some brief summaries:
Freeport-Visited the area marinas and made contact with most of them. Several vessels in this area were identified and tagged at Ridge Harbor Marina. The claim count from this area is still very small with only one claim being reported since the update last night.
Seabrook-Some of the boats in this area were identified and tagged. Trisha received a call earlier from the manager of the Seabrook Ship Yard and he stated that one of our vessels had the mast leaning up against the power lines and was preventing them from restoring power to the marina. A call was placed to David Wiggin who was at the marina and was standing outside the door to the office. He was able to immediately make contact with the manager and put in place a resolution to the problem.
Montgomery-Saved the best for last…..Fred Wright was able to have the first salvage of Hurricane Ike completed! While it was only a bass boat broken into 3 pieces….not glamorous but still a salvage, none the less, and the local TowBoatUS operator in Salvage Yard-Several areas have been located as good choices for a salvage yard. We are currently waiting for a callback from our number 1 choice. As of this evening the owner has been unwilling to make a commitment. (Probably waiting to see what other offers he gets.)

That is everything to report for this evening. More to follow tomorrow.
