I purchased a 36 ft lcpl about 3 yrs ago. I keep the boat in Venice as a offshore fishing boat. This is a great boat as far as sea worthiness and fishing room. I have made a few modifications on the boat such as air conditioning, an extended hard top, and a rail around the entire boat. I had to leave the boat in Venice during Katrina. The harbor had about 50 boats in it just before the storm. After Katrina the only way to get to Venice was by boat or helicopter. First I was told that no boats were left in the marina then a couple of days later a friend flew over the marina and told me that my boat was the only one left tied up and still floating. The boat only suffered minor cosmetic danage and is currently being repaired and repainted.

WOW! YOu should get a "lucky guy award" or something like that! Was it the six deck drain holes that saved your boat? Did you have and electric bilge pump on board? What damage did you find when you saw your boat? I ask these questions as I also have one of those boats. Mine was built by Uniflite.
