Hurricane Ike was a devastating storm for Galveston, it wiped out many homes and businesses. 

We couldn't even get on the island to check our boat for almost a week, couldn't find out what had happened to it.  I was able to find an aerial shot of the marina on the Internet. 

I could tell from the picture it was demolished, so the plight of my boat was not good.

When were finally able to get on the island, I found my boat on Hwy. 45 with numerous others.

The damage was too extensive for me to repair.  I was able to salvage the Beta engine, sails, cushions and a few other things, of which I sold to other Albin Vega owners.

At least I was able to recoup some of my investment, as I had no Hull coverage.
