You should see the water on the Westside. Checked my boat at 3:30 this morning and it was fine. Woke up around 6:30 and the boat had sunk, water rose 2 ft and the waves started to crash inside my boat. So the boat is now under water...................
I never saw how it happened but I can only guess that is how it happened........
