Very interesting topic. Mostly what we are seeing is still very scatted weed. This might be a good excuse to fly down to the Caribbean just to check it out.

I'm a Neptune guy myself. They make great lifts.

I would also suggest a 6 pole lift with banter piles on the corners. I assume you'll be leaving your boat on the lift during a hurricane

I use Blacks clips. The fishing line is attached to the clip with a #32 black rubber band. Works great and a fail safe approach to outrigger fishing.

Without seeing PICs of the boat, I'd highly advise against your friend buying that boat back from the insurance company. Likely the internal stringers are broken.

Cell coverage in and around Fresh Creek, Andros is pretty good. I had coverage out to about 10 miles east of FC. I carry a BTC cellphone and a Verizon cell phone.
