Ir was a very hard time after Irma for the first 4 or 5 days not knowing if we still had a home. The government would not let anybody back into the keys and the news kept showing the same three pics of the damage in the keys. Finally we were able to get a satellite photo showing that Sleep was still on her mooring . We could not tell if she was damaged but at least \we knew she was floating We could also see Grace but could not tell if she was damaged either.
Our little boat "Amazing Grace" did not fare so well. I had her anchored with two 100 lb. anchors. The lines did not chafe through where they attach to the boat, but instead broke between the boat and the anchors. I speculate that another boat crashed into her and the keel chafed the line into. Only God knows. We found her on the other side of the bay up in the mangroves between two other boats. The bow both sides and the transom were all smashed. She had a hard ride to the mangroves. She is a total loss.
