Of course the water isn't gonna rise..

That boat looks familiar, and not in a good way.

Typical New Yorker attitude, clearly says no parking, tow away zone and he still has the nerve to dock there. Mad Money looks like it was being driven by someone drinking Mad Dog 20-20. No disrespect to NY people, I live here too. A lot of I can do what I want to because I pay taxes here too. Should buff out though.

So this dude is traveling from within the pocket smoking a lot from his exhausts to the point I thought he might be on fire. Shortly thereafter he gasses the boat up on the bank near the ramps. It was a dead high tide on a king tide with the storm 100 miles to our east. The water was at the level of the docks.

I with others go over to help him out. He stated the marinas close by wouldn't let him tie up (of course), which he was upset about. He didn't want to anchor so he beached it. We told him to tie it to the trees (he only had his anchor line which he was hesitant to cut at our recommendation). We suspected the tide would be higher tomorrow during the storm and likely float his boat into the docks across the pocket.

He said that he had a place in Palm Beach where he had the boat but decided to run it to Stuart today because they had no slips there (Palm Beach is out of the cone - he navigated North into the cone?).

I wonder what the guy’s thought process is. Is this really the safest place to keep his boat for the storm?

There was a decent crack in the hull above the water line near the bow which he commented, "oh, that's where we hit. No worries we're all good now."

There was 2 feet of standing water in the cockpit. My vote is insurance fraud.

Looks like insurance fraud in the making.

Don't most Insurance Companies pay for a Haul during a storm?

The couple were taking a lot of pictures of their tie up / beach job after they finished?

The tide was so high they're going to need a crane to get this off the beach when the low pressure passes.
