C470 Surprise Tornado Damage

Bob and Carole Barnett, Surprise, #88

Our marina was hit by a tornado this morning (10/18/07). We have what appears to minor damage to Surprise. It blew the canvas out and there is some damage to the dinghy. The boats on trailers at the marina and yacht club next door were damaged by being blown off stands and trailers.

We will probably pull Surprise next week and have a surveyor check it for damage.

Just when I thought we were thru hurricane season without any issues, this happens.

Check out the house boat by the fuel dock. Looks like house boats and house trailers have some things in common.
