They usually put the boats back in the mangroves so theres mangrove surrounding on all sides. Worse case: the boat is blown up on top the mangroves but can be retrieved later. Biggest problem is boats sinking from heavy rain accumulation in the bilge.

I am new to this board. My husband and friends stayed at White Sand Cove last February. We fell in love with Ambergris Caye, CC and Sand Pedro. We actually came really close to buying a home.
We are hoping and praying for this thing to pass quickly and spare all. Stay safe. We just feel so bad for all the locals, resort owners and all in the path of Dean.

I spoke to Linda Carter via her cell phone in San Pedro about 30 min. ago. She and Kathy (Beachin Kitchen) are staying on the island. Linda told me that she could not leave now even if I talked her into it.

Linda's cell phone worked perfectly but once the power is shut off she won't be able to charge it. (Which could obviously be moot if all the towers/power are offline.)She also said cable/internet has been on and off.

Linda says they've had thunder and lightning but now it is "eerie calm". She rode out Hurricane Keith and is hoping to do the same this time. She did ask for prayers though and added "I just hope my roof stays on this time!" Ya gotta love Linda!

I'll keep calling her cell phone over the next few days and post any news when I reach her.
