Sad to report that our 1966 27 express went to the bottom yesterday. Nobody has any answers yet. She was last seen at noon and was ok, but by 330pm my phone was blowing up. She has served us well for 30 yrs. Consequently this month is her 55th birthday. (Hell of a way to go huh?) Anyway, I'm gonna see how Boat/US (Geico) deals with this and will report to the club. People are always asking about insurance. My Policy is Agreed Upon Value so there should be no negotiation. Gonna go by the yard today and see if I can find a cause.
Rest Easy Labors Love! in the 30 yrs since I rescued you from a barn on your head, You helped raise 2 kids, Gave me a home through 2 divorces, Countless times on the hook with peace and serenity Served a Community with the Coast Guard Auxiliary, and gave us over 900 hours of enjoyment.

OH NO!!! Lee, I am so sorry. What a shock!
Hey there Lee... It's really sad to have seen the pictures, and to know that you put a lot of time into something and one day it's done... just like that. Sorry to hear it Lee...
Tough news. Let us know what you find out.
Lee, so sorry.

That is very troubling news indeed, on many levels. I'm sorry for your loss, and terrified of the same happening to my boat. Recently a discussion came up on another forum about high water alarms and their effectiveness. It seems to me that such a device MAY save a boat, IF someone is around to hear it AND they have the means to address whatever is going on.... but that should probably be another thread.
Well that really sucks.
Hopefully the insurance company comes through to justify those payments year after year.
Oh no Lee. I’m so sorry to hear this.
literally my fear most times I arrive at the marina.
Crap! Sorry to hear
Wow, So sorry
