BoatUS “CAT” Team Still Hard at Work
operations after Hurricane Irma continue in Florida Keys
Fla., October 11, 2017 - A month after Hurricane Irma struck Florida, the BoatUS Catastrophe (“CAT”)
Field Team is still hard at work. Here, in Marathon’s Boot Key Harbor, salvage
crews from TowBoatUS Marathon raise a sunken sailboat and navigation hazard off
the harbor bottom. Since the CAT Team’s arrival in Florida the day after the
storm struck, hundreds of recreational vessels have been recovered. After
initially blanketing the state with BoatUS CAT Team crews traveling in recreational
vehicles, recovery efforts are now focused on the Florida Keys where work is
expected to be completed in about two weeks.
