Hello Again from Texas,
We have had another productive weekend and Monday here in Houston.
The surveyors spent a fair amount of time this weekend processing paperwork and getting it to the adjusters in the office. As a result we have XX files closed and another XX files in which we have sent CTL (Constructive Total Loss) settlement documents out. Rob, Trisha, Andrea and Rocky have continued to work diligently to manage the files. The number of settlements and CTL's being processed should stay high over the next few days as the surveyors press to finalize the majority of the claims in e...... Read More

Since summer is now officially gone, I thought I would try to at least prolong the memory and make my first blog post about my Summer trip to Montana...
As a life-long boater, my vacations usually include some form of sailing or boating no matter where the destination is - whether it is sailing a charter-boat from St. Martin to Nevis or tracking the Louis Vuitton cup from the deck of a catamaran off the coast of Valencia, Spain.

And so it was this summer on a trip to Bigfork, Montana near the Flathead Lake. As it turns out, the Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Cont...... Read More

Hello again,
We have had another successful day in Texas.
In Galveston we have completed several salvage jobs over the last 2 days. We have completed all of the salvage jobs that we have been made aware of at Galveston Yacht Basin and Payco Marine.
We have completed several of our larger more complicated salvages on the north shore of Clear Lake and Randy Roden has done more damages appraisals over the last few days.
On the south side of Clear Lake we have continued to get salvage jobs done and move boats on to the salvage yard.
In the storage yard we have received our jac...... Read More

Howdy from the Great State of Texas,
We have had another successful day here in the field.
Starting from the North end of Galveston Bay, we continue to work our relationships in Baytown, and are currently awaiting the city to award the contract for the salvage there. Upon the award of this contract we will work with the chosen facility to sign specific contracts for our boats in this yard.
At the Storage Yard, all of our trucking resources are here in town and we expect the traffic to the yard to accelerate.
At the Houston Yacht Club the salvage work is progressing and Damage appraisa...... Read More

After visiting Watergate, we drove around the corner and visited Waterford Harbor Marina and Yacht Club. What a difference between the two marinas! Waterford was better protected, plus they have floating docks with very tall pilings.
I was so amazed at the difference between the two marinas that I didn't take an still photographs, just this video.
