***On 08/25/2017 SV Enterprise was affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Hurricane made landfall in Rockport Texas which is where our current marina is located. SV Enterprise lost a few of her docklines making her slam against the piling and she has sustained hull damage as well as loosing many of her top deck hardware including; Bimini, solar panels, dodger, sheet winch, cleats etc.
We have been back onboard SV Enterprise now for about five days. Due to the extensive damage Hurricane Harvey caused, the city of Rockport still does not have the essential utilities working. The last five days have been extremely physically, emotionally and mentally challenging for us, we have had good moments and bad ones.
We are still working on assessing the damage on SV Enterprise, every time we find additional damages our hearts just sink. Looking at the gaping gash on the starboard side of SV Enterprise is specially heartbreaking, specially when we peel back the tape our wonderful neighbors have put on there for us. Looking at the damage we are still unsure of how to even tackle this repair, at times we even wonder if this will be repairable.
Even with all of the damage and heartache Hurricane Harvey has caused, we feel extremely blessed to still have a floating boat ⛵️, and do not want Hurricane Harvey take away our dream of going cruising to explore this beautiful world. This Hurricane has been a major set back for us and we need your support now more than ever!
