There is not enough that can be said about the Bluewater Outer Banks Yacht Service crew for working non-stop 12 hour days during Hurricane Florence haul outs. The first boats were hauled on Friday and the crew worked Saturday through mid-day Wednesday to haul as many boats as possible. Wonder how it was done? A fantastic group of guys working as a team. It was hot, humid and stressful, but we have such a fantastic crew that ensured a bit of levity and laughter. We had one boat in the Travelift, one in the well, two on the floating docks and one floating in the creek. Thank you to all the boat owners and captains that worked with us on delivery timing. Huge thank you to Craig Blackwell (Blackwell Boatworks) and Aaron Croswait (Croswait Composites) for the use of their yards for storage. Without their generosity this would not have been possible. Thank you to those who fed us, Food A Rama, Carolina Bar-B-Que, and especially Country Deli who opened up just to feed us on Wednesday. You all took care of us so we could take care of everyone else. Absolutely must give a nod to our fearless leader Jim Polatty and Earle Hall who kept in close contact throughout. And Rick Lewis on the Hammertime who took this fabulous drone footage. There were still about a dozen more boats to be hauled after the video. You made “The Girl” happy with this! So very thankful all turned out well. Again, cudos to my guys for making an exhausting 6 days, not only tolerable but full of laughter, cooperation, and if you can believe it.....yes fun. ... See MoreSee Less
