Reading many of the hydrology reports from the Army Core of Engineers...it has become abundantly clear that our water is dropping to near all time lows with new records to follow by the end of November. The above photos show the water as photographed this spring, summer and late this fall. No wonder our clients are running aground in areas they had previously transited without incident. We repositioned many clients boats this fall, with an eye to being able to launch this spring without incident. Look for dredging to occur in many harbors this spring as marinas try to cope with the "new normal". We at MAD About Boating, suggest you pray for a hard winter, but it still won't be enough according to the Core. Maybe a Hinckley Jet Boat is the way to go after all...time will tell.
This was the how the IVY Club looked on Thursday, April 18, and the Yacht Club was already flooded. Not the street lamp...there is normally a concrete walk way which has already flooded. Now as of April 24, the water came up over the railings and has flooded the dining room in the backround...how sad.
The IVY Club fuel dock floats...but the concrete walk way doesn't! The side walk is now way under water. This will probably become a new record flood.
"Bread" 137', at the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, 14,995,000. Stunning!
