DAY 77 - HARBOUR TOWN YACHT BASIN
Thursday, July 20, 2017 ~ Since we are travelling through a lot of the area that Hurricane Matthew hit I thought that I would share some information about it with you. It became a named hurricane on September 28, 2016. The highest wind speed was 165 mph. making it a Category 5 which is the highest possible. There were 603 deaths ~ 546 in Haiti and 47 in the USA. It was the 10th costliest storm in U.S. history with $15.09 billion dollars in damage. The Harbour Town Yacht Basin is still recovering from the catastrophic damage that Matthew caused. Docks are still being repaired and electric power rewired. The dock we are on just opened up three weeks ago.
We managed to contact a Caterpillar dealer and they sent a mechanic out to the boat at 3:00 pm. He believes that we have a battery issue, though both were replaced two weeks ago. We are going to meet him again in Charleston on Monday.
