I live on my boyfriend’s 1981 San­tana 35, Stitch. We are an­chored in the Din­ner Key North An­chor­age in Mi­ami, FL. We evac­u­ated to my Dad’s house in the Red­lands, FL when Irma was on its way. While we are still try­ing to de­ter­mine the full ex­tent of dam­ages, we know that a full re­place­ment of our elec­tri­cal sys­tems (so­lar panel, batteries, charge con­troller and a por­tion of the wiring) is nec­es­sary. We will also need to rebed the rail on the port side and do some chain plate re­pair on the star­board side. We’re hop­ing the wa­ter clears up enough to dive the bot­tom and dis­cover what she looks like un­der the wa­ter. Din­ner Key Basin has been my home for seven years and when we needed a place to spend hur­ri­cane sea­son I sug­gested com­ing back here where we both dis­cov­ered life on the wa­ter.
