BoatU.S. captures Hurricane Ike’s damage

Posted on

BoatU.S. has posted on its Web site exclusive video of the damage Hurricane Ike inflicted on the recreational boating community in Galveston, Texas.

The video was shot by the BoatU.S. Marine Insurance Catastrophe Team as it recovered boats and processed claims after the storm hit Galveston Sept. 13. Click here to view the footage.

“We hope that every boater and marine professional in the hurricane belt will view this footage so we can learn from Ike and always try to improve our hurricane plans,” said Scott Croft, director of public affairs for BoatU.S., in a statement.

BoatU.S. estimates that the storm caused about $175 million in damage to nearly 15,000 boats in Texas. Another $25 million in recreational-boat damage occurred in other states along Ike’s path.
