"#njsandy Have you seen this boat? Raymond Smith requests your assistance: "My boat was swept away during the storm surge. If anyone has found it, seen it, or pieces of it, please contact me. The boat has sentimental value...my daughter and I built it 5 years ago, and we have so many memories piloting it in the bay and the Toms River. Thanks! Raymond 201-655-4717""

Jesus, have a heart. A guy steps up and builds a boat with his daughter and takes it out on the water for fun, and has fond memories. Not a lot of money involved. Boat goes missing in an enormous storm and he wants it back. The purpose of only making fun of him is . . . . . . . . . .

An electric outboard a couple of beers on the bow, does life get any better. Hope he had insurance.
If he took his daughter out caught a fish or two it is all good times. Hope it works out for him.

'"Hey kid. The first boat was great. Let's build another"

Just sayin'

Maybe it's gone/ Maybe not.

healing involves moving on and if you had fun with teh first one. building another is a no brainer.

No matter what It pains me you and so many more lost so much. I don't even want to try to comprehend how awful it was and still is.

Good luck getting your boat back. If you don't find it you should pick up a damaged boat to restore as your next project.
